In episode 1/6 I was an old drunk seen in the corner of the tavern when Rabbit gets drunk and beaten up before his sidekicks rearm him and reveal the secret symbol. Great fun working on this production, I have never been on a location where the director and actors worked so fast. Looking forward to later episodes in which my sister acts as a madam in a brothel. Will this be suitable viewing for the grandchildren?!
