About Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo was born in Windsor, Berkshire, England and educated at boarding schools in Kent and Surrey from the age of six until the age of sixteen, when she ran away from school to become a drama student/assistant stage manager with Theater South East. She graduated and acted in repertory theater in various towns and cities: Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, Brighton, Hastings, and Bexhill.

She left Britain to teach English to three Italian boys in Almafi, Italy. On her return, she joined the BBC, first as a picture researcher, then as an assistant floor manager, studio manager (news) then finally a director/adaptor with Jackanory (a BBC storytelling program for children). She left BBC to marry a Welsh artist David Wynn Millward and went to live in Wales in her husband's family home. They live in a very old converted watermill, and the river is constantly threatening to break in, as it has done several times in the past, most dramatically on her youngest child's first birthday. During the summer they run a residential school of art, and she has to move her office, put down tools (type-writer and pencil, and don an apron and cook! They have three grown-up children, Myfawny, Ianto, and Gwenwyfar. Simon Russell Beale is a British actor, author and music historian. He has appeared in Persuasion (1995), The Young Visiters (2003), The Deep Blue Sea (2011) and as Falstaff in the BBC television films Henry IV Part I and Part II (2012) for which he won the 2013 Television BAFTA for Best Supporting Actor. He was also part of the main cast of Showtime's Penny Dreadful and has been described by The Independent as 'the greatest stage actor of his generation'.
Simon's numerous radio and audiobook recordings include War & Peace, The Trials of Oscar Wilde, and Hamlet, The Tempest and Measure for Measure for the Shakespeare CD Series.
