Rosamund Pike, The Girl of the Golden West, Young Poet Laureate Aisling Fahey, Grantchester

Rosamund Pike talks to Kirsty Lang about her emotionally and physically demanding role in the much-anticipated screen adaptation of the crime thriller Gone Girl. Many operatic heroines die at the end - but not Minnie, the gun-toting heroine of Puccini's opera, The Girl Of The Golden West.
