Susan Trenchard

Played By Alice Eve


Beautiful, petulant and spoilt, Susan wants everything while giving nothing in return. The daughter of a successful merchant, her marriage to Oliver was a disappointment to James, who had hoped for someone with better connections, but he is sympathetic to Susan’s social climbing. Extravagant to a fault, her priority is her own social advancement. But, whatever her failings, she is not at all stupid.
