I’ve done a bit of TV during my journalism career, and it is almost always a miserable experience, the professional equivalent of having your teeth taken out. There are too many meetings, the script they give you to read out are terrible, and filming almost always seems focused on making sure that your hair looks nice. Which is why working with Jeremy was such a revelation. He has a supremely relaxed demeanour, and the way he makes films is so casual that you forget the camera is there. I hope to do more stuff with him and would recommend him wholeheartedly.”
