The Evening Standard have released the first production stills and information from Eleanor. You can also view a short trailer over at who have briefly interviewed Ruth about her role in the production.

A star of stage, screen and television, award-winning actress Ruth Wilson can now be seen in an art installation.

Wilson, who has appeared in Luther, Jane Eyre and Saving Mr Banks, plays three women in Eleanor, a cinematic installation inspired by the poetry of Leonard Cohen and W?H Auden.

Her roles include a woman living with her dog on the edge of society, a Latvian illegal minicab driver and a middle-class woman. In one sequence, Wilson, 32, dances with Royal Ballet stars Romany Pajdak and Kristen McNally. She said: “I have a huge love of dance and poetry, so to be able to combine them in a cinematic way proved too exciting an opportunity to miss.”

Actor and director Alex Warren, 28, from Highgate, came up with the idea after reading a poem by Leonard Cohen called The Faithless Wife. He and director Tobias Ross-Southall, 28, found similar work by Auden and Robert Frost and commissioned three writers — Polly Stenham, Anya Reiss and Michael Lesslie — to interpret them in poetic voiceovers.

The 23-minute installation, which was filmed in London, is at the Cob Gallery in Camden until March 30.

Luther actress Ruth Wilson makes her directing debut at Hoxton former music hall.

Ruth Wilson has admitted that going to the theatre in the West End leaves her cold, but that she is having a ball making her directing debut in a rather shabby hall in east London.The Luther actress is starring in two short plays by Eugene O’Neill and directing a third in a production called The El.Train at Hoxton Hall.Wilson, 31, who is also in the latest Tom Hanks film Saving Mr Banks, said she believed theatre needed to be a more immersive experience.

“I don’t particularly like going to West End plays,” she said. “I know it’s blasphemous of me, but there’s a conservativeness to them. You’re running from work, you get there out of breath, there’s a bar but it’s packed and at the end you’re shunted out into the street. It doesn’t matter that it’s run down and in the middle of nowhere,” she said. “I like the experience of taking people out of their natural world and transporting them somewhere else.”

The Grade II-listed former music hall has been transformed into a New York tenement, complete with a bar based on O’Neill’s favourite haunt. After the show, members of the audience can drink late in the Hell Hole Saloon.Her passion for O’Neill, whose most famous play is Long Day’s Journey into Night, began when she starred with Jude Law in Anna Christie at the Donmar in 2011. A year ago, director Sam Yates brought her O’Neill’s early short plays and she agreed to appear in Before Breakfast and The Web and direct The Dreamy Kid.However, Wilson probably won’t act and direct in the same production again as “it’s been quite hard to compartmentalise”. She did admit she had a taste for directing: “It feels like going back to university. I appreciate directors so much more now.”

The El.Train runs at Hoxton Hall until December 30.

It’s been announced that Ruth has joined Dominic West in a Showtime pilot titled “The Affair”.

British actress Ruth Wilson is to play the female lead in the drama pilot “The Affair,” Showtime announced.

The “Luther” and “The Lone Ranger” actress will play the role of Alison, a “young married woman, working in a pancake house, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy,” a synopsis said.

Dominic West will play Noah, “a father of four, who makes Alison question the choices she’s made, and wonder whether there’s a way to start all over again.”

Playwright, screenwriter and producer Sarah Treem wrote the original script for the pilot with Hagai Levi. The pair previously collaborated on the U.S. adaptation of Levi’s Israeli show “In Treatment.”
