Factory setting: scene from Kinky Boots

Interview: Julian Jarrold

The Director of Kinky Boots - the feature film about Northampton's boot and shoe industry - is interviewed by Pete Cooper.


Julian Jarrold is the director of Kinky Boots, and this is his first feature film.

In 1994 he directed a BAFTA winning episode of the acclaimed ITV drama series Cracker (The Big Crunch), which he followed up with the two hour film for Granada, Some Kind of Life, which was BAFTA nominated.

Working with the BBC Julian directed the Emmy-nominated mini-series Great Expectations starring Ioan Gruffudd and Charlotte Rampling, and All the King’s Men, starring David Jason and Maggie Smith.

Over the last few years Julian worked with some of the UK’s most talented young actors including John Simm in the BAFTA nominated feature length dramas, Never Never and Crime and Punishment, also Andrew Lincoln in Canterbury Tales: Man of Law for the BBC.

Prior to Kinky Boots Julian directed Channel 4’s critically acclaimed adaptation of the Zadie Smith best selling novel, White Teeth,  starring Om Puri and Phil Davis.
