British actress and political activist Natascha is well-known for her popularity in US film and television, and now the star is returning home for a foray into space drama The First, which premieres on Channel 4 Thursday, November 1.
But Natascha was keen to share the other important aspect of her career right now, which is helping the People‚Äôs Vote campaign continue to grow.
Speaking to guest presenters Rylan Clark-Neal and Amanda Holden about the London march which she attended, Natascha shared: ‚ÄúWe felt quite victorious, it was great and it started the debate.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt was electrifying,‚ÄĚ she said in reference to the sheer numbers that showed up for the demonstration. ‚Äú700,000 and I think they [only] predicted 100,000.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI started the debate and people feel very passionately either way even if they voted leave,‚ÄĚ Natascha continued. ‚ÄúPeople who have now changed their minds – we‚Äôve now started to recruit people who feel that maybe they were lied to.‚ÄĚ
The star went on to say she‚Äôs getting ‚Äúexcited‚ÄĚ about the figures, and she‚Äôs even gotten her son involved in the campaign.
Taking to Twitter, fans shared their anger over the segment, and in particular the idea of ‚Äúrecruiting‚ÄĚ British people who voted to leave the European Union.
One person blasted: ‚ÄúInteresting to hear her use the word ‚Äėrecruit‚Äô when talking about getting people on the Brexit march.
‚ÄúWhat do these thick people not understand? It‚Äôs not about being lied to, it‚Äôs about controlling immigration and making our own laws. Simple #ThisMorning.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt was going ok til she came out as a remoaner, boring! #thismorning,‚ÄĚ another shared.
A third fumed: ‚Äú#thismorning Stop letting stupid people keep going on about staying in the f*****g EU people’s vote what a load of s**t. The people had their vote, accept it you morons and wind your necks in.
‚ÄúThe only way the ‚Äėpeople‚Äôs vote‚Äô march would have had an impact,‚ÄĚ a fourth began, ‚Äúis if it was in Yorkshire, or Newcastle or somewhere.
‚ÄúIt just looked like a lot of posh Londoners kicking off. Eventually they‚Äôll have to leave London. #ThisMorning #itvThisMorning.‚ÄĚ
Not everyone felt the same, as one person responded: ‚ÄúCalm your tits, pal. People are entitled to an opinion, even if you don’t like it. #ThisMorning.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúCan’t wait to see #TheFirst it looks bloody brilliant #ThisMorning,‚ÄĚ another excited fan praised.
While a third joked: ‚ÄúNatascha McElhone looks exactly the same as she did in The Truman Show.
‚ÄúHOW??!! It was over 20 years ago! #ThisMorning.‚ÄĚ
