The English Patient’s Kristin Scott Thomas and Ralph Fiennes were reunited on the red carpet last night at the London premiere of The Invisible Woman.

Fiennes directed and stars as Charles Dickens in the adaptation of Claire Tomalin’s book about the writer’s romance with a younger woman, Nelly Ternan, played by Felicity Jones.

Scott Thomas and Fiennes famously played lovers in Anthony Minghella’s Oscar-winning film The English Patient back in 1996. In The Invisible Woman Scott Thomas plays Nelly’s mother, Mrs Frances Ternan.

The Thick Of It star Joanna Scanlan plays Dickens’ wife Catherine in the film, which was adapted for the big screen by award-winning script writer Abi Morgan.

Scanlan confessed being directed by Fiennes was, “quite scary”.

She added: “He’s a force and he has such clarity about that he wants and how he’s going to bring the scene together.

“I did feel a lot of the time that he would have played it much better than me. I felt I was failing him!”

The Invisible Woman is due to be released in cinemas on February 7.
