She explained to him that she is in the early stages of developing a film about Nightingale because she is 'fascinated by her.'

Nightingale was an English nurse who travelled with 38 others to Constantinople (Istanbul) in 1854 during the Crimean war.

Despite women being officially barred from the upper parts of the medical profession, Nightingale tirelessly fought doctors caring for soldiers to ensure better conditions.

Nightingale was later awarded for her services by Queen Victoria and has a lasting legacy in the medical profession.

Moss believes her story is still relevant, 'because nothing much has changed.'

We think it's a match made in heaven because, as the actress said, 'she believed in getting things done.'
