Actress James revealed more about what fans can expect from the TV adaptation of this tragic novel.
She said: "It's a beautiful story about family, friendship and about pursuing love whatever form that takes for each person.
"It’s a wonderful celebration of the Mitford sisters. Nancy wrote this book about her life, her sisters and how they grew up. I think it’s fascinating and they were brilliant.
"It’s funny, clever but at the core of it there’s a question of what really makes us happy. It is love? It’s bonkers, brilliant and beautiful."
James said she fell in love with Linda's personality when she read the book.
