Gentleman Jack Press Launch

A woman often called “the first modern lesbian”, Gentleman Jack – a new BBC/HBO drama – portrays one of the most formidable women of the 19th century: Anne Lister.

Hopper was excited to be involved in the star-studded screening held in Anne’s home town of Halifax.

The red-carpet event at the historic Square Chapel & Piece Hall included appearances and Q&A’s with writer Sally Wainwright, stars Suranne Jones and Sophie Rundle, and BBC 5 Live’s Anna Foster.
