“The Invisible Woman” is actor Ralph Fiennes’ second directorial effort. It looks at the relationship between the elder Charles Dickens (Fiennes) and 19-year-old Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones), the secret lover he had until his death.
Fiennes talked with ExtraTV.com about playing the literary icon, and Dickens’ love for being a larger-than-life character. Plus, Jones dishes on something we might not know about Fiennes.

“The Invisible Woman” opens in theaters Christmas Day.
