Philip Glenister talks to Sky One Insider about his role in the 2012 TV adaptation of Treasure Island.
Describe Captain Smollett.
He’s the captain of the Hispaniola and he’s engaged on sealed orders by Squire Trelawney [Rupert Penry-Jones] to sail the ship over to the island. The reason he’s on sealed orders is because Trelawney doesn’t want him to know that they are on a mission to nick treasure.
Nina Sosanya talks to Sky One Insider about her character in the 2012 TV adaptation of Treasure Island.
Describe your character.
She is talked about very briefly at the end of the book when they’re talking about what Silver does and they say that he goes off with his ‘mulatto’ wife. She has no name and it’s about as much mention as she gets. I’m playing Alibe Silver who is that wife.
