Shows That Shaped Me is a theatre podcast from WhatsOnStage in which we ask leading theatre actors and makers about their most memorable productions, the production they wished they'd seen and the person, dead or alive, that they'd most like to work with.

This week's guest is actress Jemima Rooper.

Jemima's career started at a young age, appearing in several films in the early '90s, as well as playing George in a TV adaptation of Enid Blyton's Famous Five.

More recent screen credits include As If, Hex and Lost in Austen, and she made her Hollywood debut in The Black Dahlia, alongside Scarlett Johansson.

On stage, her credits range from Her Naked Skin and One Man, Two Guvnors at the National Theatre, to the West End productions of All My Sons with David Suchet and Zoë Wanamaker, and Blithe Spirit with Angela Lansbury.

Next up, she plays Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, which runs at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre until 15 September.
