A couple of days later - a couple of very anxious days later - Philippa called me up and said “we’d like to offer you the role.” And I was so shocked that I actually got the role, I went into complete New Zealand mode which is underplay everything and went “ok, that’s pretty good, that’s great.” And she’s like “yeah, Peter really liked it and we’d like you to play Fili” and I was like “well that’s good. That’s just great.” And inside I was like “oh my god!”
