Actress Celia Imrie is pleased to back in the role of Madge in the The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, playing one of several older Brits who’ve made a crumbling Indian hotel their home.

She views starring in a film featuring actors who are in their 60s, 70s and 80s, who’re playing characters of the same age, in very positive terms.

She says: “We’re all living longer now, and I feel more optimistic about what’s to come than ever now, and I think that’s what this film will give people hope for.”

The actress appears to enjoy playing her character who she says is a bit melancholy. Imrie was really eager to do the sequel. “It was the quickest ‘yes’ I’ve ever said, when they asked if I wanted to do another one,” she says.
