The Author - Rachael Blake

“As the writer starts to piece together the ending of her second book, her question ‘can I do that?’ is one that all women who have struggled to claim some power know well - that feeling of breaking an ancient rule - ‘women are not supposed to do this!’


The psychology in The Second (written by Stephen Lance with Blake in mind) was rich and dark and fascinating, and allowed us to explore all of this terrain and more. Rachael embraced her character’s contradictions so fully, with such instinctive intelligence and courage and I’m so proud of her performance in the film,” said director Mairi Cameron.
