SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DON’T LIKE SPOILERS.

It looks like “Peaky Blinders” Season 4 would have major changes on its return as most of the Shelby family ended in jail. In an interview with Helen McCrory, who plays the role of Aunt Polly, the 48-year-old star gave little teasers of what fans could expect on the show.

Aunt Polly To Take Charge Of The Peaky Blinders?

“She’d been running the business while they’d been away,” Helen McCrory said at the BBC One’s “The Andrew Marr Show,” via The Week UK. The English actress revealed that her character as Aunt Polly now has an eye to taking the power in “Peaky Blinders” Season 4 while the Shelby brothers are helpless. “As far as she’s concerned, they’re doing it really badly, they’re making mistakes, they’re going into other people’s turfs,” she added.

However, Aunt Polly has nothing but good intentions to make their family business move on the right track and make it bigger than before. She is dreaming of giving balance to the company and to the family to make the Peaky Blinders go further and known in the industry in “Peaky Blinders” Season 4. In the coming new installment, she explained that fans will soon witness why she has to be in charged.

LONDON (AP) — You might not think there’s much overlap between Amy Winehouse and the work of playwright Terence Rattigan, chronicler of upper-crust British stiff upper lips.

But the troubled diva is one of the influences behind Helen McCrory’s searing performance in Rattigan’s play “The Deep Blue Sea” as a well-off woman who leaves her husband to live — in sin and shame, since it’s the 1950s — with a younger man.

The sold-out National Theatre production, screened live in movie theaters around the world starting Sept. 1, is the latest sign of the renaissance of Rattigan, who was one of Britain’s most successful playwrights between the 1930s and the 1950s before falling out of fashion with the rise of a younger generation of “Angry Young Men.”

She’s trapped between her dutiful High Court Judge husband and her feckless lover Freddie Page, a former World War II fighter pilot sinking into peacetime alcoholism.
