Heather Lind vs Anna Strong.

The actor vs The historical powerhouse.

Heather is currently portraying revolutionary spy Anna Strong in AMC’s TURN. In just over an hour, season two debuts in the U.S. at 9pm EDT.

I met her for the first time about six months earlier in a bar in Richmond when I was photographing Australian actor and fellow TURN cast member Daniel Henshall for the same project.

Sweet
Gentle
Kind-hearted

These were my first impressions of Lindy.

It wasn’t until I spent an afternoon with her, that I realised the she has much more in common with her formidable character.

Conviction
Strength
Independence
Creativity

Perhaps this is why Heather Lind is so apt to portray such a renowned woman.

In an interview with Alyssa Rosenberg for the Washington Post, Lindy says:

“I love history, but you don’t hear women’s perspectives that much. And I think when you do, they’re sort of skewed through the prism of male experience.” (You can read more here).

One thing seems very clear. This role is important.

Here’s to strong women.

Let the revolution begin.
