Body of Water

Sian Brooke was one of our very first lockdown interviews, and we’re thrilled that we’ve since had the chance to catch up, as she spoke about her role in the stirring drama Body of Water, directed by Lucy Brydon.

Brooke talks about the mental exhaustion of playing a role of this nature, and just how challenging and rewarding an experience it was for her. She also speaks candidly about her weight loss for the part, and the risk factor involved in having to lose such a significant amount of weight in such a short period of time. We also speak about the brilliance of new filmmaker Lucy Brydon, and Brooke tells us how it was this very experience collaborating with her that has since inspired her to write something of her own.
