Our own BAFTA winning tutor, Catherine Scoble was the make-up designer on this series which has been tipped for award nominations and critical acclaim. The new four-part mini series is based on EM Foster’s novel, showing the social and class divisions between three families in 20th century England: the wealthy country-based Wilcoxes, the London-dwelling Schlegels, and the lower middle-class Basts. All the families interact with dramatic and sometimes awkward encounters in this new BBC period drama.
It stars the gorgeous and very funny Hayley Atwell, Matthew Macfadyen and Tracey Ullman.
Catherine used Chantecaille base make-up for the natural, camera-ready finish. Lots of laying on of beards was involved to create an authentic, undetectable look. As we know here at Delamar, laying on beards is not easy!
The Oscar-winning writer behind Manchester by the Sea, Kenneth Lonergan, has adapted the novel for TV.
We proudly supplied so many Delamar graduates to work as trainees on Howards End including Lucy Oswald, Krystal Buckley, Carly Guy, Emily Wilcox, Liz Pantaleoni, Christina Moat and Maxine Crew.
Christina described her time working with Catherine as:
“Such a valuable experience for anyone with a passion for hair and period dramas. Watching the make-up artists transforming the supporting actors in the crowd room was such a treat. The actors became authentic Edwardian characters in no time at all. It was so amazing to be involved with this process. I learnt so much in just a few days and to my surprise I had quite a few tasks to get done! I had such a lovely time. Thank you Delamar and Catherine for the opportunity, I can’t wait to watch it on Sunday!”
Howards End begins on Sunday 12th November at 9pm on BBC1.
