Rebecca Callard, daughter of Beverley Callard who played Liz, was on ITV's This Morning earlier today talking about her character Ruth, who makes her on screen debut tonight as a fellow prisoner of Fiz Stape.
Rebecca said that her character will be "formidable, really interesting, hard and tough," and she is something completely different from the characters in costume dramas that she usually plays.
Rebecca will only be in nine episodes at first and she doesn't know if she can come back. She would like to though. I think Ruth sounds like a strong character person even before seeing her on screen, so I hope she does, but what does everyone else think?
