Though originally broadcast in America on public television and available on Netflix where it became a cult favorite the series has since moved to the streaming service Acorn TV, which specializes in programming from the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland and more.
Acorn is also where the new movie based on the series is premiering, called Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears. Davis said she welcomed the opportunity to return to the world of this amateur, flapper-era sleuth. I know her very well, so it felt easy to step back into her shoes.
American audiences will also recognize Davis from her roles on Game of ThronesThe White Princess and as the mother in the horror movie The Babadook. Her career includes theater credits as well, and it was a stage role that came to mind when asked to share a worst moment in her career.
This was in and then in we brought it to Broadway. And we had 1, people in the audience at the National.
Then it moved to the West End, and then it was on Broadway. There is nothing more embarrassing to me than that scenario.
Meanwhile I had been eating a chocolate bar a day in terror laughs. So that was eight shows a week.
I got a fake tan. And you know what?
It never got easier, not one single day. It was really sweet. Normally I would prepare a very snipped little tampon for the performance.
But I forgot. What am I going to do? I knew that in a moment I was going to have to be standing on that big white bed, naked from the bottom down, talking about poets.
I had to just keep going, and I could feel blood running down my legs as I was standing on this bed, and I thought: This is the worst, most excruciating moment of my entire life laughs. It was excruciating laughs but oh my God, what a good story!
