On today's episode I talk to actor and writer Will Sharpe. Will grew up in Tokyo and London and went to university at Cambridge, where he was president of the Footlights Revue. After graduating, he began his acting career, first with the Royal Shakespeare Company and later on a number of TV shows including Casualty, Sherlock and Dirk Gently. As a writer, Will's written for Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and his first feature film Black Pond was nominated for a BAFTA award. Most recently, he wrote and directed the show Flowers (which can be seen in the States on Seeso) starring Julian Barrett of The Mighty Boosh and Olivia Colman from Broadchurch.
