I am about to do the Larry Moss Masterclass (arghhh!!!) and about to start rehearsal for a play called ‘night, Mother.
Who would you invite over for dinner and why?
So many people- where do I start! Ben Whishaw because he is incredibly handsome and a beautiful actor; Bill Nighy so we can drink wine and talk about literature; Greta Gerwig because I think we could be soul mates and Jane Goodall – no explanation needed!
