British actress Brenda Blethyn is experiencing a serious communication breakdown on the set of the new TV series of WAR AND PEACE - because she is the only English member of the cast. The SECRETS AND LIES star is shooting the show in Lithuania, and while the rest of the cast and crew are friendly - the language barrier is making life tricky. She says, "The cast is completely international. I'm the only English person there and communication is extremely difficult. "One of the cast came up to me and mumbled something. I thought he offered me a coffee but I ended up with a bowl of cockle soup."
