Utena: With Sword

More on the "Is Martha in Series 4?" debate

The Metro has a sixty second interview with Freema here, and there are some very, very interesting comments in regards to the is she/isn't she leaving thing. To wit:

Are you really getting killed off in the next series?
No, I’m not allowed to discuss series four but they have let me defend myself regarding that story – it’s totally untrue. I don’t know where it came from but I’m not getting axed. It was quite horrible to read it. I’m not going. [emphasis mine] I’m just focusing on the fact the fans are still really enjoying it.

The article also, in it's introduction, describes Freema as preparing to resume her role in Series 4.

It's not as valid as an official BBC announcement, but it's certainly strongly implying she's due to be around longer.

Also, check out the rest of the interview, it's rather fun actually.
