You do go to work to do it. It's not like you're so marvelously gifted it just spills out of you. Hide

I'll know more about it once the publicity machine kicks in, because I've never been through all that madness. Which I'm looking forward to, but I'm also apprehensive.

I don't know where that comes from . . . It's partly to do with One Summer (1983), the first thing I ever did, which is a very gritty piece of work; it was quite romantic, but it was about two poverty-stricken inner-city kids.
