As far back as writing this film I knew the biggest challenge for us was going to be finding someone who had the dramatic sensibility for Guy and could pull off a fifteen minute film where they are the only person on screen. It was clear the performance requires someone extremely professional and of exceptional acting ability.
I've been familiar with Billy's work for a long time and a big fan, right from the early days when he was in a small independent horror thriller called Urban Ghost Story. Of course we all got to see him really shine in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings as Pippin which, for my money, is the best film trilogy in existence. I knew Billy was my man so, without any sense of confidence, we approached him.
Thankfully, he got the idea, liked the story and dug the script and we're privileged to have him on board. With almost everything in place now, we can't wait to shoot and see Billy bring the character of Guy to life.
