Anne Choma first began reading the diaries of Anne Lister in 1992, going on to do further research as a post-grad student at the University of Leeds in 1994. She is the author of Gentleman Jack: The Real Anne Lister, the official companion book to the hit 2019 BBC/HBO drama Gentleman Jack, written by Sally Wainwright and starring Suranne Jones.
In her capacity as lead consultant to Wainwright on Gentleman Jack, Choma will share rare insights into her role, and how as a key member of the team she transcribed approximately 850,000 words of Lister’s voluminous and complex diary. She is currently working on series two of Gentleman Jack, and continues to play an important role in driving global attention to Lister’s extraordinary life and work.
