What has been the favourite film/tv programme/project that you have worked on so far?
Hands down, Sex Education season 3
What has been the most challenging project?
James Bond – The team were hard to work with and it was straight after school where I’d been working and studying simultaneously, I’ve never been so tired in my life.
What aspirations do you have in terms of future projects?
I just want to continue to grow my skillset as best I can and to grow as an artist.
How has the industry and your role been affected by the impact of COVID? How hard have you been this period? And what changes could you envisage to the industry long-term, if any?
I’ve been very fortunate to be in a position where I’ve had to turn down work during the pandemic. In exchange I do my best to pass others names on where I am unavailable.
What is your favourite film in terms of the make-up and effects and why?
I like many films for hair and makeup sadly. I can’t really choose. Although, I really like Pan’s Labrynth, The Duchess and recently Underground Railroad.
Who would you most like to work with/for i.e. actors and directors?
I’d love to work with Steve McQueen and Barry Jenkins.
