The Call the Midwife Roll Call: Bryony Hannah (Nurse Cynthia Miller)



Bryony Hannah - Call the Midwife

Serving as the lead-in to the fourth season of “Call the Midwife,” the series’ Christmas special marks a turning point for longstanding nurse, Cynthia Miller (Bryony Hannah), who feels compelled to take her desire for helping others to a whole new level. This may be a nerve-wracking move at first, but one that should ultimately fulfill Cynthia with the happiness and purpose she’s long desired.

“She has quite a discovery,” relayed Hannah during an interview with RadioTimes regarding the fourth season of ‘Call the Midwife.’ “[There’s] a big transformation for Cynthia. We’ve seen her growing in confidence in previous [seasons] and she’s doing that, but she’s always trying to find where she fits in the world. She is trying something this [season].”

Added Hannah: “[Cynthia’s] still very heartfelt and earnest. She’s very dedicated to her work and she takes everything very seriously.”
