Éva Magyar begins shooting feature film Let Me Go, alongside Juliet Stevenson and Jodhi May.

Let Me Go, which is a story about mothers and daughters and abandonment, follows the emotional journeys of four generations of women from the same family and how they suffer from a trauma created over 70 years ago during the darkest period of World War II.

Eva Magyar (X-Men: First Class, Monte Carlo) plays a significant role alongside Juliet Stevenson (Truly Madly Deeply), Jodi May (Last of the Mohicans, The Other Boleyn Girl), Simona Hughes (The BFG, Women in Gold) and Elizabeth Webster (Game of Thrones). Casting has been handled by WildmanHall.

Filming is underway in Surrey, England, and is expected to last three weeks, before moving onto London and ending in Vienna. Production is scheduled to last five weeks in total.

Writer & Director Polly Steele says “We are thrilled to be making a truly independent film with extraordinary female leads as well as an amazing crew made up of 50% women. The time has come for this story to be told and we are very excited to be bringing it to the screen.”


Éva Magyar was born in Budapest, Hungary. She took the UK theatre scene by storm in her performance as Yseult in the National Theatre production of Tristan and Yseult, which the Guardian called astonishing. More recently she has worked extensively in cinema and television, playing roles in the feature films Monte Carlo, X-Men: First Class and Hedda Gabler (National Theatre).
