dogme film


Interestingly I wrote the part of Paul with Paul McGann in my head, hence why I called him Paul. He never believes me when I tell him that but basically I’m a fan and knew it would need a special actor who would have no qualms about playing this not very nice person. Fortunately Paul McGann “got” the script straight away and actually said to me “ I don’t want to play him with any sympathy” which was great because dogme rules are about presenting the reality of the characters, warts and all if you like.” ~Jan Dunn - Director of Gypo (2005)
