Why the ‘lack of a clue’ on ‘LAD’ was the biggest mistake of my career
- by admin
When I was interviewing with a producer for a TV series, the question came up.
“Are you still here?” he asked.
I knew I was in for a long conversation, because I hadn’t heard a single word.
I’d heard the words “LAD” several times over the years.
The series would run for nine seasons and feature the most memorable character in TV history.
The show’s writer, Chris Chibnall, had worked on the show for more than a decade, had starred in it and was a regular on TV shows such as The Good Wife and Game of Thrones.
But I’d never met Chris, and I’d had no idea he had such an amazing talent for writing.
I was just a bit shocked, because my mind was kind of blank.
When I think about that moment, it was a pretty big one.
I’d only been in this business for a couple of years and had just signed a contract.
But my experience with Chris was a great one, so I was really excited to get on set and work with him.
Chris and I sat down and we had a couple beers and he got me a beer and said, “Hey, I know you’re in a movie.
I know that you’re a fan of the show.
I just need you to come in and do a scene.”
So I went to the set and was there for a week or so, and after that I had to wait for a producer to get back to me.
They were like, “Oh, we’re going to get you an audition, but we’re just not going to tell you anything about the movie you’re auditioning for.”
And I was like, What the fuck?
I just thought, Oh my God, I’m in a fucking movie, right?
And then they were like: “OK, we got your phone number, and we’re calling it in.”
They were texting me back and forth, and they said, Oh, we gotta do a call.
So I called the phone number and they answered and said they had to call you.
So then I went on the phone with the producers and I said, I don’t want to do this movie.
So they said they’re not gonna do it.
And they were just like, OK.
I had to be ready.
I had done this job for a year and a half and I had a bunch of friends that I was working with and I was ready to make the jump.
And I just started going to work, and then I was on set with Chris and the producer and they were telling me, “Look, this is gonna be a very long day, because you’re going in and they’re going out.
You’re gonna be here for a day and a bit.”
I was just like this is it, I have to do it, because this is the next step, this movie’s not going anywhere.
And then I came out of the office, and it was like a blank slate, but it was exciting.
I’m here and I’m making the jump, because there’s no one else to do what I’m doing.
Chris was just such a great guy.
I remember going to a shoot in LA and he was just sitting next to me, he was talking to the director, he said, this was the best shot I’ve ever had.
And that was the first time he told me to work on the film.
I think that was really amazing, because when I was talking with him, I was thinking, I’ve been there before.
It’s not gonna happen again, and he said I had no choice.
And when I said that, I knew I had made a very big decision.
I was so grateful.
I didn’t want the film to be my last job, so to speak.
And the other thing I really appreciated was Chris is such a good man.
I mean, he’s a really great person, and when he’s with me and when I’m not with him I’m super happy to have him.
I always say, he knows how to do his job, and if there’s something he’s doing that I don
