We have added x144 screencaps of Jess chatting to Tatler Magazine for the September 2014 cover shoot …
Jess is on the cover of UK’s Tatler Magazine for September 2014.
She told the magazine she was “desperate” to get into theatre, but was finally comfortable in her own skin. She said: “When I was growing up, I always felt quite odd and offbeat. I never really slotted in.
“And it’s as you get older that you realise that the things that make you strange are the things that make you who you are. And that’s a lovely place to get to.”

Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club was announced as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup this morning.
Starring Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Sam Claflin, Max Irons and Sam Reid the film centers on two first-year students at Oxford University who join the infamous Riot Club, where reputations can be made or destroyed over the course of a single evening.
The movie is described as “a scathing dissection of the British class system” and the TIFF screening will serve as its world premiere.
The trailer was released a little while ago, but it missed our news beat, so here it is, along with the official synopsis:
A privileged young man is inducted into the exclusive, debaucherous company of Oxford’s elite “Riot Club,” in this scathing dissection of the British class system.
No U.S. distribution yet, but it opens in the U.K. on September 19th 2014.
Jess stepped out last week for the launch of Vivienne Westwood’s new collection in London. The catwalk show reached new heights of fashion – involving her new uniform designs for Virgin Atlantic.
The British icon has unveiled her red hot pieces for the Sir Richard Branson-owned airline, in the company of Mark Ronson, Matt Smith and Bond girl Naomi Harris.
As Paul McGuigan puts the finishing touches on his version of the Frankenstein tale, starring James McAvoy, Daniel Radcliffe and Jessica Brown Findlay, it’s picked up both a new title and a new synopsis.
20th Century Fox revealed this morning that McGuigan’s Frankenstein is now going by the title Victor Frankenstein. That name ought to please the sticklers who are always smugly pointing out that Frankenstein is the name of the doctor, not the monster.
Despite the title, Victor Frankenstein is really Igor’s tale. Here’s the official synopsis:
James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.
Frankenstein and his monster were originally creations of novelist Mary Shelley, but Igor wasn’t conceived until Universal adapted Shelley’s book into a film series in the ’30s. He’s cropped up in many other forms and in many other places since then, but the Max Landis-scripted Victor Frankenstein is the rare retelling to put Igor front and center.
Victor Frankenstein has been in the works for a few years already. Shawn Levy was set to direct at one point, but at some point that job shifted over to McGuigan. The film was originally supposed to open in fall 2014, then early 2015, and now it’s scheduled for October 2, 2015.
Jess Brown Findlay can be seen alongside Max Irons, a member of the infamous Riot Club – inspired by Oxford’s real-life Bullingdon Club which counts Prime Minister David Cameron and Mayor of London Boris Johnson among its past members.
Irons stars in The Riot Club – a new film based on Laura Wade’s award-winning stage play Posh – which has released its first full trailer also featuring Douglas Booth (Noah), Freddie Fox (Parade’s End) and The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, as well as Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown-Findlay, Holliday Grainger (Great Expectations) and Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer.
Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Eductation) and set at Oxford University (“where rich kids first taste power”), the film charts the course of one riotous evening gone bad for this crop of young, spoilt-rotten students.
The Riot Club will hit Cinemas on September 19th 2014.
