“We both sat down at the same table in the cafe where we both turned up to write. We were both jostling over the same laptop plug points, like a very modern way of meeting”.
“And we struck up a friendship and reconnected down the line. But it’s weirdly like one of the many things about preparing for this role that was so special, it just brought a lot of goodness into my life.”
He added. “It’s weird because no one is really sure exactly when they’re on camera. So you actually get a couple of seconds of people’s unadulterated, unvarnished reactions. So it’s kind of cool in a way because you see a very intimate reaction.”

His wife Mirza’s debut novel ‘A Place For Us’ became a New York Times bestseller when it was published in 2018.
