SEA AND AIR I LOVE THEM BOTH
Hayley Atwell is to play an odious slave owner in the BBC adaptation of The Long Song, Andrea Levy’s novel set in a slave plantation.
The Agent Carter star has been cast as Caroline Mortimer in the BBC1 three-part drama, owner of a 19th century Jamaican slave plantation.
The story is told principally from the perspective of Mortimer’s maid, a strong-willed young slave called July played by Tamara Lawrance (King Charles III, Undercover).
War & Peace star Jack Lowden plays Robert Goodwin, the new overseer of the plantation who brings with him revolutionary ideas about improving conditions. Lenny Henry plays Godfrey, Julia’s fellow slave in the drama.
The series has been adapted by Sarah Williams and has started filming in the Dominican Republic. The series is expected to air either at the end of the year or early in 2019.

Author’s Note: This is a stand alone piece, but because it is stylistically similar to Eternity In A Heartbeat, you are welcome to see this as a continuation to that, if you wish.
Author’s Note #2: I am currently taking requests! Send me an ask or a message or even a reply to my requests post, anything you want related to Jack (not his characters) and I’ll be happy to write it for you! If you want, you can check my masterlist to see what kind of stuff I’ve written before.
Can I request a Jack imagine please? One where you go to a Stereophonics gig alone and are dancing and singing, having a good time. Jack notices you and you catch him looking and end up enjoying the rest of the show together. (If you’re not familiar with their music and need a couple of song titles “Dakota” and “I Wanna Get Lost With You” are two of my favorites 😊) Thanks dear!
Hey, @cavghtbythewind are you sure that Caught by the Wind isn’t your favorite Stereophonics song? (I’m just kidding, I’d never listened to them before, I just know who they are and scrolled through their discography before writing this) Love you for your participation/activity on my blog. Enjoy this!
In that particular instance, you were that girl. Yes, that girl. The one you see that’s slightly tipsy but having the time of her damn life. You remember going to a concert about a year ago and seeing one such woman and thinking… I’ll never be that girl. That’s tacky. Yet there you were, at the concert of one of your favorite bands (alone, no less), on the floor with a beer in your hand, bumping into fellow concertgoers and fans, hair everywhere, dancing your heart out and shouting the lyrics at the top of your lungs (which you knew by heart).
You hadn’t seen him watching you. In fact, the only thing you saw was your beer when it came towards your face, your hair (also in your face), and the occasional band member onstage between songs when you stopped dancing (you wished they were near your face). “Caught by the Wind” had just finished playing, and you stilled your wild self for the few moments between songs where the band explained the song.
The opening chords rang through the venue, and the man smiled as you jumped up and down in excitement. But… you stumbled a little bit on your last jump, and he almost rushed forward to help you, but he thought he’d better not. The beer sloshed out of the cup and all over the floor, a few drops of the alcohol landing on the front of your shirt. You stopped jumping to check yourself out and make sure nothing was wrong other than the bit on your shirt, the sticky and now empty cup in your one free hand as the other was feeling up and down your clothes for wetness. You sighed, feeling guilty that you were missing the beginning of “I Wanna Get Lost With You” as you searched for the nearest trash can.
“I know… crazy concert girl with beer down her shirt. That’s me,” you admitted to the man staring at you. You approached him, seeing a trash can in his vicinity.
“No… I don’t…” He tripped over his words a bit.
“No, it’s okay. I get it.” You threw out the empty cup and stood next to the man, wanting desperately to scream the lyrics but at the same time knowing that… this guy had a great spot.
Typically at a concert you want to be front and center before the stage, but you realized that this guy might be onto something. The lights and sound crew sat in their booth on the floor behind where you stood, and the area was raised a little bit, allowing for a wider range of sight, and… a direct view of the stage! You stood on your tip toes.
“Mate, this spot is amazing. Who’d’ve thought?” The man looked at you. He was… kind of hot, actually.
“You’re a Stereophonics fan, then?” He asked, which you found a little annoying.
“Yes?” You scoffed. “I’m at their concert, and I’m being the crazy concert girl tonight, so, yes? Of course? Any self respecting Brit with good music taste knows the Stereophonics.” The guy was a little bit taken aback, his eyebrows raised slightly. You knew you normally wouldn’t say something as rude as that if you weren’t so tipsy.
“Sorry…?” His eyebrows raised higher.
“Y/N. My name is Y/N,” you introduced yourself, warming up to the blonde man.
“Jack.” You shook hands.
“Pleased to meet you, Jack.” You felt you should maybe try and be a little charming after embarrassing yourself in front of this nice man you’ve found yourself with.
“Are you here alone, Y/N?” He asked. Warning signs went off in your head, thinking maybe he’s a creep.You tentatively answer him and ask why.
“I just wanted to know if you dance with me? Just hang out here tonight?” Your fears melted away at his smile.
“It would be my honor.” You thought he’d been smiling before, but this time there were dimples, and it made him even more charming and attractive.
“I Wanna Get Lost With You” ended and you both waited patiently, eyes toward the stage, for the next song.
“I was going to say something, but you lot know know this one already, don’t you?” The crowd went wild and the lights fell.
“Oh my god, Jack,” you yelled just loud enough for Jack to hear as the opening to “Dakota” blasted through the amps and speakers.
“What is it Y/N?” He shouted back.
“Dakota’s up next!” Your stomach flipped. It’s seriously amazing to experience something you love up close and personal, and the feeling is amplified in the presence of thousands of people that feel the exact same way that you do.
You looked at your new friend, then at the stage, then at all the people enjoying the music, then closed your eyes to take in the chorus. You knew you’d remember this.
Calibre is a really nice thriller. Go see it!
Jack… I’m always amazed by his beauty.
Tommy’s aplomb will never be eclipsed 💫
Jack being shirtless on Instagram …jeeez 🙌🏻💓
jack lowden; king of thirst traps.
j_a_lowden: The brother’s on set for Taps Aff Saturday’s…but am the only one playing.
nah mate, are you kidding me?!?! I wasn’t prepared for this AT ALL
Just saw Mary Queen of Scots trailer and we can see from the beginning that it’s not historically accurate. Despite this, I’m still gonna see it because I like period drama movies and because I love some of the actors, especially Jack. I can’t wait to see him as the narcissistic and ambitious Lord Darnley (if they portray him like that because this movie is just an adaptation probably made to give Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan an Oscar).
