The press screening went well and I was lucky enough to catch a couple of minutes with the lovely Andy Buchan and Lyndsey Marshal.
I asked Andy about his hair extensions (question from Demurely). He said that it was different this year because he had a clip in hairpiece, whereas last year he had actual extensions, but it still took time to attach it every morning!
Meredith asked about the favourite and least favourite thing about working on the show. Andy said that one of the highlights for him was watching Aidan McArdle (Silvester) work, and getting to spend time with him in the court scenes. Meredith also asked about how Andy got on with his convoluted lines. Andy said that after three series now, it gets in your blood and you become really familiar with it.
Judith asked about what items of clothing do the cast like or loathe wearing. I asked Lyndsey this question. Lyndsey said that she loves her corset because it gives her some cleavage ! But she also loathes the corset because it’s such a hassle to put on and it’s so tight, she has to take it off so that she can eat some lunch!
Judith also asked about what Episodes they have enjoyed to date. For Andy, he said one highlight among many was the Duel scene with Silvester in the first series. Lyndsey said that for her, the whole of series three has been a highlight – she said that everyone has raised their game and she thinks it’s the best series so far. Sounds good!
Oh, and finally, Irene asked me to give Andy a hug – I did! It was very enjoyable – thanks to Andy for being a good sport and receiving my hug on your behalf!
