Bridgerton's other breakout star is set to star alongside Matthew Goode's good dye job and bad mustache in a film about ceramics artist Clarice Cliff. Cliff was famous both for her groundbreaking art deco designs at a time when women rarely took center stage in the art world.
Goode's character (Colley Shorter) plays an "eccentric factory owner" who takes an interest in Cliff — paying for her to go to school to further her talents in ceramics design and, naturally, having an affair with her despite being 17 years her senior and very married. Shorter and Cliff eventually married after the death of his first wife.
The film boasts a female writer and director and the majority of the story will center on the way Cliff broke barriers in the world of pottery.
It's just started pre-production and will eventually be screened on Sky Cinema in the UK. It also stars the seriously underrated Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave) and the oddly under-employed David Morrissey (The Walking Dead).
ONTD, is it time for another wank post about age gaps and/or affairs? Do you care about the high-stakes world of pottery art?
