I think a big part of our attraction to sport movies are the stories contained within the sports.
I found it an interesting portrait of a marriage in exploring notions of how one partner supports the other whilst not jeopardizing the greater good – which is the family.
But just playing the partner of someone famous I had a lot more freedom.
It was a lovely opportunity for the first time in my whole career to stand up and thank people who are really responsible for me getting to realize my dreams.
There’s nothing as exciting as a comeback – seeing someone with dreams watching them fail and then getting a second chance.
