‘It’s nice now to get the good parts’: Call The Midwife’s Helen George says she’s been offered better acting roles since she became a mother

Helen George has admitted she feels the roles she has been offered have become better since she became a mother.

The actress, 35, is currently taking on the title role in the play My Cousin Rachel at the Theatre Royal, Bath and said it’s one of the first time she has played a woman, rather than a girl.  

Speaking on This Morning, Helen said: ‘It’s a really great adaptation of the book. It’s wordy, it’s sexy. She’s in control of all the situations she puts herself in. She’s a woman. I’ve not played parts that are women.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Helen spoke about the upcoming Christmas special she filmed in Scotland.  

‘We go to the Outer Hebrides. There’s some babies. I have some scenes with a cow. It was beautiful because we got to film in the Outer Hebrides for four weeks,’ she said.

‘We were shooting outside a lot. It was really cold. We go there because there’s a small community without any healthcare providers so we go up and help.’
