Matt and I had a really special time on the set of ‘The Hot Potato. Tuesday night was great fun (even if a little surreal). Having a few drinks in a bar full of famous actors unwinding was a real experience but more importantly how we were treated by Ray, Jack etc.
Combined with the crew we met, what a lovely bunch of people. I thought Ray and Jack were really nice and we did thank them for their hospitality when we left but they really did make an effort to help us feel at home, even down to Jack asking if we wanted to have dinner with them. Shame we lost them on the walk . It was amazing meeting Derren Nesbit who played Major Von Happen. Genius, and a character that really had an impact on me as a young boy.
I know that The Hot Potato is going to be a very cool film to be associated with and will enjoy real success. I hope to catch up in November when filming comes to town but in the meantime thank you and the team for letting us share some of the experience of filming.
