Faye Marsay: “We’ve not seen something like Glue before”

The rising star makes her big-screen debut in upcoming Pride as she prepares for E4’s new drama Glue, hailed as a Skins-meets-Broadchurch mash-up

Actress Faye Marsay is certainly keeping us on our toes as she leaps from shows such as historical drama The White Queen to youthful Fresh Meat. Heart-warming and powerful comedy film Pride is next on her list alongside E4’s suspense-filled Glue.


“I just like doing my job,” Marsay tells RadioTimes.com at the London premiere for Pride, a film about gay and lesbian activists supporting the 1984 miners’ strike, which also stars Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Andrew Scott. “I’ve been lucky enough to sort of go over different mediums, different vibes and genres.

“I just like playing people,” she adds.

Glue is Marsay’s next TV project, with the drama already being noted for its apparent similarities to Skins, thanks to its young cast and profile of lustful teenagers. But there’s a darker side to the series akin to shows like Broadchurch, the actress reveals.

Pride is in cinemas from September 12 with Glue starting on September 15.
