Ruth also sported a red and black houndstooth blazer for the occasion while she added height to her frame with a pair of black heels.

The film star completed her look for the evening by letting her brunette locks fall loose down her shoulders.

Joining Ruth at the event was her co-star Dafne Keen who donned a shimmering burgundy long-sleeved mini-dress.

The 14-year-old added to her outfit by sporting a pair of black ankle boots as she posed alongside Ruth.

His Dark Materials, which follows the novel series of the same name made up of Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, will star Dafne as heroine Lyra.

Along with Ruth, who plays Marisa Coulter, Dafne will also be joined by James McAvoy and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The series, which is set on a parallel Earth, focuses on humans whose souls exist within creatures known as daemons and take the form of animals.

It will follow the heroine Lyra as she hunts for answers after her friends disappear following encounters with beings known as The Gobblers.

You ain't nothing but a hounddog in Ruth's Hellessy jacket

It appears the classic houndstooth pattern is having its moment in fashion again after being worn in the limelight by Abbey Clancy, Ella Eyre and Amanda Holden recently.

Now Ruth Wilson is joining the gang as she sported this blazer at a premiere in Cardiff. The black and red check added a hint of colour to her other grey tone, and if you look closer you’ll notice the eye-catching pocket scarf that completes the look.

The double-breasted blazer is by Hellessy and hails from their AW19 collection. Fortunately, for we mere mortals, Ruth’s jacket is still available to buy at Tootsies. Just click (right) to shop your size.

Amid her search for the truth, Lyra is taken into the care of Marisa Coulter who is linked to her uncle, Lord Asriel [James McAvoy].

After being gifted a device called the Alethiometer by the Master of Jordan College where she lives, Lyra begins her hunt for her friends.

Fearing Dafne would look too old if they waited to for feedback on the first instalment before recording the second, the BBC took a risk and started filming the next series straight away.

While the bold move may seem risky, early viewings have indicated that fans will be satisfied.

Although the adaptation is understood to have a lower budget than that of Netflix's $7million-per-episode The Crown, it will exceed any other previous BBC drama.

The cost is being shared by the US network HBO, which will distribute the adaptation internationally.

His Dark Materials is set to air on BBC1 on November 3 2019.
