As ever, a pleasure working with UE. I was lucky enough to be the driver of the Alvin as Mark Strong's double in the scene where he drives to the school. We were well looked after, as always.

It was a pleasure to work with UE on this. As ever it was so well arranged from fitting to shoot. I have fond memories of the day in the vacant offices near Old Street with the Chinese laundry workers!
