Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 214 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Ladies and gentlemen, this right here is the official four person ‘Walk Like A Panther’ reunion featuring STEPHEN GRAHAM (aka ‘Mark Bolton’), NEIL FITZMAURICE (aka ‘Cliff ‘Edge’ Morris’), DAN CADAN (the writer and director) and - for credit’s sake - SCROOBIUS PIP (aka ‘Terry’)!
This is far from a casual bro-down with four mates getting along famously - it’s a proper acting masterclass, as the crew deliver gem after gem on the acting process and their method. Of course you have the molten core of Walk Like A Panther nuggets right there in the middle - let’s not forget that, as they are many and varied - but the tangents, the stories, and the wisdom all coat that core deliciously and provide a lovely, friendly and caring roundtable chat in Stephen’s garden. Which explains the birdsong ambience in the background. So enjoy, as you hear about acting with heroes and how to get around confidence dips or getting in one’s own head, taking risks, what it means to have other actors looking out for you, the pride of Liverpool natives doing good things as it wasn’t always easy back in the day to struggle through, and overall just absorb the inspiring communal-minded chat - who better to represent a film which is, at its heart, loving and communal in spirit. The perfect follow on episode after speaking to Kate Nash last week about 'Glow'.
Oh - and naturally - BUY ‘WALK LIKE A PANTHER’ at your nearest convenience, eh!
