Look who’s back on the cover of our December/January issue! It’s the iconic Suranne Jones. We can think of no one better to see in the transition of 2023 into 2024 than this DIVA fave. Suranne talks to DIVA’s editor-in-chief, Roxy Bourdillon, all about playing queer (again) in Vigil, the Gentleman Jack fandom and more.
Here’s your teaser for what the certified gay icon had to say…
The different types of characters she has played and their arcs: “People say, “Oh, you play a lot of lesbian roles?’ But I don’t see them as the same…”
The sapphic relationship in Vigil: “[Amy and Kristen are] going to be together, but they’re both ballbreakers. Let’s see what happens”
Her relationship with LGBTQIA fans: “I feel very connected to the queer community”
