London Burning Photoshoot

LONDON BURNING – “I grew up on a council estate, and when you grow up somewhere like that, it’s hard to shake it off. Even when you’re placed in über-glamorous circumstances, you can’t quite fit in. I’m so grateful to have come from that, because I can see the disparities between the two! Well, to me the glamorous side is not real at all. I enjoy going to film festivals, I enjoy going out for nice dinners and living the nouveau-riche life, because that’s what I am, nouveau-riche. Yet it’s not where I feel comfortable. I guess that’s why I live in south London still. Even though I live in a nice place, I still can be five minutes down the road and I’m in Brixton or wherever. I don’t think I could ever live anywhere that was manicured because I’d find it very uncomfortable…

How weird is this: [my first job was in] the Warner Bros shop! And then I ended up working on Warner Bros films. I made my first film when I was 22… I remember one day I was serving a guy in the shop that was James Bond’s stunt double, and he was boasting to everyone. And then, five years on, you’re working on the same thing. It’s weird. Life is full of things like that.“
