Rose picked

The BBC has turned to C4 to find a new Head of Films - 45 year-old Rose Garnett, daughter of Adrian (Andy) Garnett and Polly Devlin OBE, writer and a member of the Northern Ireland team for Radio 4's Round Britain Quiz.

Rose began her dramatic career in 1992 at Cambridge University, as the producer of ‘Talking Tongues’ Theatre Company with David Farr, Sacha Hails and Rachel Weisz ('Rose is my best friend').  She and Farr then took over the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill where they commissioned and worked with writers and directors including Lee Hall, Tracy Letts, Anthony Neilson, Ben Hopkins, Dominic Cook and Sarah Kane.

Previous film work includes Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and Gaby Dellal's Angels Crest as associate producer. She joined C4 in 2013.

Rose's husband, Tom Browne, is an actor-turning-writer-producer. Credits include the 2009 short, Spunkbubble, and 2014's Radiator, Richard Johnson's last film before his death.
