Guess where Lily James learned to type like a 1940’s PA for her latest film?

Elizabeth Nel, played by Lily James was a personal secretary to Winston Churchill from 1941 – 45. The film follows Winston Churchill’s early days as Prime Minister while Hitler closes in on Britain during World War II. Lily was required to type fast with the posture of a formally trained secretary.

Liz Davis, our typing tutor was on set to coach and also ensure continuity of typewriters, locations and document layout of the period. We can’t wait to watch the film and see Lily put her skills into action!

The Darkest Hour which will be released in the UK on 12 January 2018.
