In partial two of the new series, which you can see at 9pm tonight, Victoria is feeling sceptical as Albert gets close to mathematician Ada Lovelace.
The black also realises she is profound again — and worries that motherhood may shorten her reign.
Jenna can sympathise with Victoria’s resentment, which would have been done by the chronological circumstances.
She explains: “There was no contraception. Pregnancy isn’t a choice.
“To see her resent the pregnancy — not given she doesn’t adore her children but given it’s not a choice — it’s a shade side to her life.”
With Victoria having 9 children, Jenna indispensable recommendation so the unpleasant birthing scenes, from an epoch when there were no anaesthetics, looked realistic.
She said: “From what we have learnt about Victoria as a person, we didn’t feel she would do it quietly.
“I got tips in the make-up lorry before. They told me the pain is all in the back. Only eight some-more babies to go!”
Born in Blackpool, Jenna has grown to turn one of Britain’s many sought-after actresses.
Known as Jenna Coleman given 2013, she was christened Jenna-Louise.
Her grandmother chose the name formed on the Priscilla Presley impression Jenna Wade from hit Eighties US soap uncover Dallas.
Jenna always knew that behaving would be her career.
She said: “It was never something that ever felt like a chore.
“I desired to watch films, we desired reading stories and we desired examination people.
“It was what we wanted to spend my time doing.”
While auditioning for play school at 19, she landed the role of Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale, which lead to a assignment for Most Popular Newcomer at the National Television Awards in 2006.
Viewers were dumbfounded when Jasmine incited on her dodgy cop boyfriend Shane Doyle and killed him after he pounded her and best messenger Debbie Dingle.

Then Jenna done her big-screen entrance in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
But it was joining Doctor Who in 2012 as the Time Lord’s messenger Clara Oswald which pushed her into the big league.
Recalling the moment she perceived the call to contend she had got the part, Jenna said: “I was in Marks Spencer’s holding an avocado. we put my basket down and left but we couldn’t tell anyone.
“So we went for a bit of a walk and tried to digest it. It was really utterly surreal.”
After making her name as a soap star, Who fans gave a churned greeting when it was announced she was joining the sci-fi show.
But she shortly became a organisation favourite among viewers during her three-year army alongside Matt Smith, 34, and Peter Capaldi, 59 — apropos the longest-serving messenger given the series returned in 2005.
The fans she had won over were then repelled to see her quit her role alongside Capaldi in 2015, after alighting the partial of Victoria.
Now entirely enthralled in the stately role, which she hopes will be a long-running one, Jenna admits to meaningful reduction than she would like about Victoria as a person.
She pronounced of the 4ft 11in monarch: “I never suspicion of her as being small.
“The only things we knew about her was that she desired her husband, had a prolonged duration of anguish when he died and was famous for being ardent when she was younger.
“Other than that I’ve been really astounded by my miss of knowledge.
“Going by Kensington Palace it’s fascinating to see people’s reactions when they see her dresses and her size.
“She’s famous for being the widow in all-black. It’s really a explanation to see that she’s not.”
Jenna believes Victoria’s steely integrity done her such a successful queen.
She said: “The moment someone tries to take a little bit of energy she totally fights back.
“But at the same time she has a finish miss of self-esteem. You have these paradoxical natures conflicting inside her.
“It was pronounced she learnt to be presumably cooperative to people she dislikes and distrusts. But being unbelievably realistic is the categorical thing we have accepted about her.”
Despite wearing artistic gowns and costly trinket for the role, Jenna reckons it is unfit for her to get ideas above her hire while filming the show — which last week pulled in just 3.7million viewers for its opening partial compared to 6 million during the first series.
She explained: “Our studio is in an airport hangar in Yorkshire.
“You walk out and it’s been raining so you have to put on your wellies, collect up your dress and try to walk to your trailer. The practicalities of it bring you back down to earth.”
But a offer from Tom would really brush her off her feet . . .
