Faye Marsay marches into UK cinemas with Pride

Faye Marsay stars in Stephen Beresford’s eagerly-awaited feature film Pride, directed by Matthew Warchus.

Faye plays Steph, a lesbian activist, who along with her fellow LGBT protesters in London, decides to raise money to support the miners on the grounds that they share a common enemy; Thatcher’s government. An inspiring tale begins of how two very different communities join together to muster courage in the face of adversity.

Faye leads alongside a host of star-studded British talent, including Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine, Andrew Scott, Joseph Gilgun, Ben Schnetzer and George MacKay.

The film receives its North American premiere this month, selected for a special presentation at the Toronto Film Festival before its full US release on 19th September.

Faye played the role of Anne Neville in BBC1’s hit series The White Queen before leading in The Bletchley Circle for ITV and joining the cast of channel 4’s Fresh Meat as series regular Candice. This month will also see Faye starring on the small screen as Janine in channel 4’s much-anticipated new crime drama Glue.

Pride, which also features Sean Hart, James McGregor and Matthew Tennyson, marches into UK cinemas on 12 September.
