Back in 2007, Anna made a terribly short cameo as an ITU Nurse in ITV’s movie version of Frankenstein. DVD caps can now be found in our gallery.
Victoria Frankenstein is conducting ground breaking, but highly controversial work in the field of stem cell research and medical biotechnology. She is obsessed with her research, The Universal Xenograft Project (UX), generating a multi-organ bank to create organs which are fit for human transplant. Her obsession is not driven by a desire for fame or adulation, but to save her dying son William.
Maddened by grief and desperation Victoria steals a sample of William’s blood and introduces it to her research programme. Deep inside her lab, in the confines of a purpose built tank, the cells grow at an extraordinarily accelerated rate. As they diversify, mutate and re-form, a horrified Victoria realises that she has lost control of the experiment; the UX is alive – what has she created?
Starring multi-award winning actress Helen McCrory, James Purefoy and Lindsay Duncan.
