Bringing the story all the way to the end of the Durrells’ stay in Corfu has created a sense of completeness, Hawes said – even though she will miss playing Louisa Durrell.
“We had an amazing time and we were so lucky that we were able to tell their story and to finish it off and to round it off in the way that we did, and it feels very complete, and we loved it,” she explained.
“And I think this series – I really think it’s the best yet. Everything was thrown at it because we knew it would be the last, so I’m really excited for everyone to see it.”
