Joanna Page on Elizabeth I Role in 50th

jo-page-50th-anniversary-filming-17aprilJoanna Page was a guest on ITV’s Loose Women [via] yesterday and spoke briefly about her role as Elizabeth I in The Day of the Doctor.

She said: “You don’t expect three weeks after giving birth for them to phone and say ‘Will you play Elizabeth I?’ I said ‘Yes, OK, but [my daughter]’s coming with me, and I think they knew not to mess with me, I was like a lioness. I was ‘I’m feeding, this is when she gets fed, she’s coming on set, she’s coming everywhere with me’, and that’s what happened. But everyone was just great.”

She adds: “One day I was about to get on the back of a horse with David Tennant and James, my husband, drove in in the car with Eva, said ‘She needs feeding’ so I got off the horse, got in the back of the car, ripped open the bodice and Elizabeth I was breast feeding! That’s a working mum for you.”
