Holliday Grainger On Playing Miriam In 'The Finest Hours': 'It Was Scary Because She Was Hugely Loved'

Holliday Grainger dolls up in a chic dress for the gala premiere of The Finest Hours held at Ham Yard Hotel in London, England on Tuesday night (February 16).

The 27-year-old actress met with crew members of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution on the red carpet for the special event.

“I didn’t feel the pressure of the role until I went to Chatham and met Miriam and Bernie’s daughter,” Holliday shared about her connection with her character in the film.

She continued, “She took me on a tour, we went to the lighthouse, and we stood on the 36-500, the actual boat that was in the rescue…hearing her talk about her mum was so helpful for me to find and flesh out the character but also scary because Miriam was hugely loved.”

Holliday is also pictured below at BBC2 Radio Studios late last week.
