Town - Life of Wylie

Julia also stood in for the Queen during filming inside the Palace. “I was contacted by somebody working on the film who had worked with me before,” she reveals. “They said, ‘We don’t just want a Queen double. We’d like an actress. Why don’t you do it?’ I don’t really look like the Queen but I was a physical match. “So I went and met the director Danny Boyle and we had a laugh. It was a couple of days at Buckingham Palace and huge fun meeting Daniel Craig. I mean, who wouldn’t do it? “I didn’t meet the Queen, although I’ve met her several times before. But I did sit at her desk in her lovely sitting room. “Daniel Craig and I spent a lot of time sitting in the helicopter but it didn’t take off with us in it -­‐ it just looked as though it did. I’m not a very good flyer! “A lot of it was edited out but what was there was very funny.” Julia’s previous screen credits include: Marple, Cranford, Fresh Fields and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. 12
