“The most hipster looking rebel you’re likely to see.” Ha, I’ll put that on my CV. :-D
I was playing the pacifist, feminist Francis Sheehy Skeffington. He was for independence but not by violent means. Skeffington was trying to stop the looting and was captured & murdered by the sadistic Captain Bowen-Colthurst. His wife Hannah Sheehy Skeffington sought justice & Colthurst was found guilty of murder but pleaded insanity & was put up in Broadmore for a few months before retiring on a full pension.
