Agyness Deyn signs up for period drama 'Sunset Song'

Monday October 15, 2012

Model-turned-actress Agyness Deyn has expressed her excitement at filming period drama Sunset Song.

Having recently starred in Nicolas Winding-Refn's Pusher, the actress will now be starring in the Terence Davies production.

Playing an impoverished farmer's daughter named Chris Guthie, Agyness has been inspired by her new role.

She said: "She is such a heroine and so strong. She had such a hard life and the film looks at how she got through it. Peter Mullen is playing my father so I'm just really excited."

She added: "When I read the script I fell completely in love with the character and the story. I'm so honoured and excited to be working with Terence, he's such an incredible director.

"I can't wait to get started and just hope that I can do Chris Guthrie justice!"
