The blue carpet at Odeon West End in London belonged to the cast and director of The Sapphires last night when they premiered their film at the BFI London Film Festival. It was a reunion for Australian actors Deborah Mailman, Shari Sebbens, Miranda Tapsell and Jessica Mauboy, and director Wayne Blair, with Irish funnyman Chris O’Dowd, who brought his new wife Dawn Porter to the event. Deborah, Shari, Miranda, Jess and Wayne promoted The Sapphires in Australia but Chris couldn’t make it down for the trip. They did, however, debut the musical at the Cannes Film Festival together back in May.
