The Honourable Woman

American Maggie Gyllenhaal Does Her Best British Accent in ‘The Honourable Woman’ This July

BBC Two political thriller The Honourable Woman will be making its way to America later this month, where we’ll all get to see the very American Maggie Gyllenhaal give us her best attempt at a British accent. American ladies doing British drama seems to be quite the thing now, what with actresses like Gillian Anderson and Elisabeth Moss crossing the pond to headline various dramas (The Fall and Top of the Lake, respectively).

In this eight-part drama, Gyllenhaal stars as Nessa Stein, and the Academy Award nominee is joined by an all-star cast that includes The Shadow Line’s Stephen Rea, Doctor Who’s Lindsay Duncan, The White Queen’s Janet McTeer, Broadchurch’s Andrew Buchan, The IT Crowd’s Katherine Parkinson and many more.
