The story revolves around a headstrong farmer, Rosemary Muldoon, who has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly's love. The problem is, Anthony seems to have inherited a family curse and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father's plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew, Anthony is jolted into pursuing his dreams.

She is also an acclaimed singer, as exhibited in 'Into the Woods' and the more recent 'Mary Poppins', her other areas of expertise being playing the cello and horseback riding.
The world knows him as Christian Grey even though he has been in plenty of productions otherwise, he seems to be having a hard time registering to us as anything otherwise.
