Kristin Scott Thomas plays Winston Churchill’s wife Clementine in the upcoming film “Darkest Hour,” which examines Churchill’s first term as prime minister, as Britain faced an imminent Nazi invasion. Thomas, who plays in both English and French language films, is perhaps best known for her Oscar-nominated role in “The English Patient.” She joins us to talk about the allure of stage acting, why she has never been drawn to Hollywood like other actors and “Darkest Hour,” which opens the Mill Valley Film Festival on Thursday.
