This way, he gets very spontaneous shots and he doesn't delay the filming. He has a great, very easy and relaxed manner on set, and even though he's only with us every fortnight or so, he makes sure he knows the whole cast and crew. He takes great pictures, too.
Grantham's a nice town. Birthplace of Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher. Very quick train to London. Great market on a Saturday. Friday night a bit scary, though.
Georgie v Tara
Georgie Henley continues to do sterling work as Young Jane Eyre. She's with us for most of the week with her charming mother Helen. I like to talk to them about their experiences on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Georgie has great stories about acting with a dot on the end of a stick which was supposed to represent Aslan.
Young Jane has a number of very physical scenes at the Reed House which require Georgie to throw and receive punches, get chucked into a chair, and be carried screaming up the stairs.
We have a lovely, gentle, very experienced stunt coordinator called Nick Wilkinson who takes Georgie through every step of the action, making sure she feels safe and is safe, and making sure she's happy with the action.
Georgie also has to act with the terrifying Mrs Reed, played with characteristic gusto and skill by the brilliant Tara Fitzgerald. Tara's fantastic, but I'm thrilled to see that Georgie more than holds her own.
Diederick previously produced the first three series of Cutting It, and two of the ShakespeaRe-Told dramas, including the Bafta-nominated Much Ado About Nothing.
After Jane Eyre, he's moving on to become Executive Producer of EastEnders.
