This was fun I’d had a Rhett Butler (Gareth Alexander) almost from the beginning of the Hullywood Icons project and I had been waiting for a Scarlett O’Hara and with only a week to go Amy Jennison got in touch a match made in heaven for Hullywood. Many thanks to Wilberforce House Museum:Hull Museums for providing the perfect location for this shot.
