Rosa Hoskins is a writer and actress living in London. She has performed on stage, TV and film. She has written screenplays and is currently working on a book. Between acting jobs Rosa worked as a personal stylist which led to fashion journalism. Her blog, Haute Hoskins, focuses on emerging British designers, new trends and vintage fashion.
Rosa's first book IT'S ALL GOING WONDERFULLY WELL will be published by Hutchinson in 2015.
When Bob Hoskins died of Parkinson’s earlier this year, his daughter posted a blog called ‘Lessons from Dad’, which received an extraordinary response. In this emotional tribute, Rosa Hoskins remembers the times they shared – whether at home or on the set of Hook – and goes on a journey to learn more about him, gathering stories from the people he worked with over the years, including Robert De Niro and Helen Mirren.
An unlikely Hollywood star, Bob Hoskins will be remembered for classic films such as Long Good Friday, Mona Lisa and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. But as he told his daughter, in the end, love is the only thing that matters.
Filled with the humour, honesty, enormous love and respect that characterised Rosa and her dad’s relationship, this is a moving memoir about growing up, grieving and embracing what you had.
