Favorite on-set memory?
Filming Jerome in the back of an ambulance on blue flashing lights! And having those moments where everything falls into place such as the beautiful sunset shots with Jerome and the drone!
Craziest on-set/en route to set adventure?
So many to choose from but one that springs to mind was a 10 pitch multi pitch in France. A huge golden eagle flew past us within metres of us. It’s surprising how big they are and their huge claws! If that wasn’t worrying enough, we then had vultures salivating whilst watching us hungrily. Then adding to the drama I was belaying my 2nd on the last anchor in a bee’s nest! The descent was pretty mental too!
