My name is Hayley I'm the blogger/creator of this little website dedicated to Anna Maxwell Martin, I created a site way back 2006 then it was called Anna Maxwell Martin Fan, unfortunately I was a poor poster and the site went into hiatus for a long period, I resurrected it way back in July 2008 and moved over to blogger again my posting has been sporadic but I'm going to focus more on the site this year.
Anna is one of my favourite actresses ever since I saw her in North and South and then again in Bleak House I thought she was very talented and I was sad to see no site dedicated to her work so decided to create one myself, I hope you like the site and look forward to Anna future work.
