I first met Kevin McNally on a rainy day in West London. We got chatting and I told him about this short film I had planned. He laughed and said he’d do it. A few months later he called me from the set of Valkyrie asking for a shooting date. We had one, early November. Kevin got there at 6am and played the part to perfection.
Just before we cast the Dentist’s assistant I found this song, ‘Little Johnny Rainbow’ by Petula Clark. It seemed to reflect the whole mood of the piece so I played it during the auditions. When Martha appeared, not only had she done her research, but she was by far and away the best actress.
