1I just caught up with Marvellous (2014) with Toby Jones, which I loved. And I thought The Lost Honour of Christopher Jefferies (2014) was brilliant.
2I don't think there's as much of a divide between types of acting as there used to be. If someone has been in a good soap opera and they've had a big storyline, TV channels are pretty savvy that they can attract people to watch other things they're in.
3[on Cucumber (2015)] It's just a drama about a group of people having sex with each other. I don't find it risqué. Just because it's about gay sex, it doesn't mean that it's dirty or controversial.
4The LGBT world is one that I'm familiar and comfortable with.
