Dancing in Costume comes easily to Matthew in Anna Karenina

In keeping with the fun and frolics of the upper classes at that time, the lead cast were all expected to dance – and we don’t mean throwing some shapes on a Saturday night dancing – we’re talking ball gowns and waltzes and major concentration. Keira found it ‘really, really, really difficult. He [Matthew] actually did find it really easy – it was really depressing. I’m usually quite quick at picking things like that up but actually I found it impossible and he’d just do it in about five seconds.’
