Can you believe it’s been four years already? Time flies!
To celebrate today’s special day, I’m happy to announce we have a new Video Vault which is mobile and tablet-friendly so you can watch videos from Maxine’s various projects, interviews, clips and more from everywhere as long as you got wifi 😉 Hope you like it!
Go to VIDEO VAULT
to watch the latest videos… more to come in future updates 🙂
It’s been exactly 3 years since this site, ‘Maxine Peake News‘, first opened its imaginary doors 🙂
The website went through a couple of changes and hopefully, lots of improvements in the past but the aim to create a space for fans of Maxine to look out for news and photos organized in a gallery has always been the same. Now you wouldn’t think of it that much maybe – 3 years can be a long time though. When I first started writing blog posts on here, I had only just graduated, moved out, just basically starting a new chapter in my life as well as beginning my studies and along my way I discovered Silk which I still love most of all of Maxine’s work.
In summary, working on MPN has not only brought joy to me but it also means a great deal. I hope y’all stick around and keep on enjoying Maxine’s work. We certainly do 😀
The gallery updates continue as I’ve uploaded over 1300 HD screen caps from Room at the Top in our photo gallery. Enjoy! 🙂

Congrats to Maxine who is nominated as Best Actress for a Manchester Theatre Award!
Maxine Peake, Imogen Stubbs and Lysette Anthony will battle it out for the title of best actress at the 2012 Manchester Theatre Awards.
Peake has been nominated for her performance in Miss Julie, Stubbs for hers in Orpheus Descending and Anthony for her role in Lady Windermere’s Fan, which all ran at the city’s Royal Exchange Theatre.
