Emily Watson was a real wonder to get on the film. We were so excited when she wanted to play Miss Trinklebury. She is a very special actress who the audience believes in utterly. She played Miss Trinklebury perfectly. A very believable shy, caring woman who finds it difficult to stand up to the bully Agnes Adderstone.
