Filming my Channel 4 Series — “Madame Galina’s Whirlwind Guide to Ballet”.
‘Spectacular and eccentric…More! More!!’ Daily Mail.
‘Lovingly tart!’ The Rough Guide to Choreography.
‘Essential viewing.’ Evening Standard.
And, during filming, from the general series producer: ‘Iestyn, we are very sorry you got a poorly foot today, but please don’t send the director off the set again for — as you view her — being a complete cretin, misfilming your pirouette sequence six “shi*ting” times. We could perhaps discuss your stance that it’s “completely mental to employ her to make a humorous piece about ballet, when she’s humourless and knows f-ck all about dance”. We can’t comment on her having a supercilious spoon-face.’
You win some…
