TO CELEBRATE Dame Julie Walters’ BIRTHDAY, WE WILL BE WATCHING WILD ROSE Written by award-winn

Dame Julia Mary Walters DBE (born 22 February 1950), known professionally as Julie Walters, is an English actress, comedian, and author. She is the recipient of four British Academy Television Awards, two British Academy Film Awards, two International Emmy Awards, a BAFTA Fellowship, and a Golden Globe.


Written by award-winning writer Nicole Taylor (BAFTA for Best Writer for Three Girls and nominated for The C-Word), Wild Rose is a funny, sad, tender and uplifting story, starring Jessie Buckley in her breakout role.


Diamond-in-the-rough Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) is fresh out of prison and determined to make it as Country star. But her long suffering mother (Julie Walters), who has raised Rose-Lynn’s two children in her absence, thinks her dream is pie in the sky and demands she put family first. Forced to take a dead end job, she soon discovers a silver lining: her new employer (Sophie Okonedo) has become her biggest fan and wants to help her realise her ambition. With her self-belief restored, she begins to discover who she really is and that there is a different path to success.
