How does this all fit with you working on The Nevers? Was it a case that working on that show has been quite a restorative process?
JW: It’s been hard, but yes, it’s been restorative. I’m extraordinarily excited that we start shooting again tomorrow, but also doing a show for HBO means working to a different structure to what I’ve done before, so I was like "Yeah, I’ll get back on the horse. Oh wait I’m riding the thing from Avatar, I don’t know how to ride this!" So it’s been really challenging but really worth it and great. It’s a little bit like "Oh yeah, this is what it feels like when I write and direct. I remember now". So that’s great.
The Nevers is currently filming in London, with Tom Riley playing Augustus Bigelow. The series has a mention in a recent press release by Warner Media.
