Here’s me, Sophie (middle) and Sarah Brocklehurst – the producer who’s made it all happen – in Manchester location-scouting back in March. I was pregnant. I think that explains my strange tilted head.
Shout-out to Celine Haddad and everyone at Creative England who has helped with the project’s development. I really appreciate the chance to try writing a script.
