I’ve been on the set of many films and TV shows such as The X Files, Sherlock, Will & Grace, The Tonight Show, Luther, The Tunnel, Call The Midwife, Desperate Housewives, and (a career highlight, this one) Teletubbies.
I’ve also reported from behind the scenes stories from Punchdrunk, the National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Sadler’s Wells. Rehearsals are usually intimate, protected spaces where performers can experiment and find their way, so I’m grateful to everyone who let me be there to witness it.
One of the joys of feature writing is that you get to meet interesting people who find themselves in interesting situations, or who are just passionate about what they do. I’ve interviewed authors and comedians, wine and cheesemakers, set and costume designers, Lottery winners, art transporters, social media influencers, choreographers and dancers from the Royal Ballet to Strictly, and all kinds of others. I’m always up for learning about something new!
