Hethersett drama students meet Greta Scacchi

Two drama students were given the chance to meet with one of the silver screen's leading ladies after the actress kindly responded to a letter.

Sixth formers Olivia Hovey and Alex Serruys, of Hethersett Old Hall School, wrote to Greta Scacchi after discovering the play she is starring in drew similarities with their own A-level performance piece.

Miss Scacchi is currently playing the part of Hollywood legend Bette Davis, alongside Anita Dobson as Joan Crawford, in the play 'Bette and Joan' which is based on the relationship between the two world famous actresses.

The students travelled to the Arts Theatre, London, to see the play and were then invited to meet Miss Scacchi after the show, who spoke to them about their own performance and gave them photographs and signed posters.
