Ruth Wilson Interview
JOHN CAMERON MITCHELL: You’re the hardest working lady in show biz. How many things have you done on your hiatus from The Affair?
RUTH WILSON: Three films.
MITCHELL: Jesus Christ.
WILSON: I’ll sleep when I’m dead.
MITCHELL: Oh, God. Or sleep when you’re my age.
WILSON: Where are you?
MITCHELL: I’m in San Francisco. I just got back from a Radical Faerie community—spelled F-A-E-R-I-E, like The Faerie Queene—which is a queer “intentional community.” It’s like a commune.
WILSON: Are you just popping in and observing?
MITCHELL: I was the first artist-in-residence at this new community. And I feel like a goddamn hippie, I tell you.
WILSON: So, did you have your space and your time? You had your animals. Did you write anything?
MITCHELL: I did a bit of writing. It’s a bit of autobiographical stuff, which is driving me crazy. I notice that you had directed some. Are you going to be doing more directing, and even writing?
WILSON: I don’t know about writing. It’s quite lonely. You have to have a lot of patience with yourself. I don’t know if I could do that. But I’d love to direct again. I had a chance to be involved in the creative process of everything, not just the acting, but what the lights were going to do, what the sound design was going to be like, the casting, watching actors develop and grow and—
WILSON: And stumble. [laughs]
MITCHELL: It’s fun to help them.
WILSON: And them asking you what to do, and you’re like, “I don’t know.” [laughs]
MITCHELL: I love when a director says, “I don’t know.”
WILSON: I’m not very good at lying, so I can’t bullshit that.
MITCHELL: And yet you’re good at acting, which is kind of lying.

What is the real-life story behind Ruth Wilson’s new BBC drama Mrs Wilson?
Making and starring in a TV drama about your own family might sound a bit self-indulgent – but the real-life story behind Ruth Wilson’s new series Mrs. Wilson is so extraordinary that it’s practically made for TV.

But when her husband died suddenly of a heart attack at the family home in Ealing more than two decades later, Alison made a shocking discovery: she wasn’t the only Mrs. Wilson, and her two sons were not Alec’s only kids.
Written by Anna Symon, the three-part drama is based on the true story of the Wilson family. Here is what we know about the real Alexander Wilson and his wives.
