I've always loved the idea of playing an inspiring, rabble-rousing teacher I had an amazing teacher at my school called Alastair Langlands, who introduced me to my first love: storytelling. He made language, words and poetry magical, which has stayed with me. It's what attracted me to the role of a drama teacher in [my new film] Hunky Dory.

No shame in short
Thursday 16 February 2012
How quick we are to take offence. I have written before that it's the sign of an increasingly infantile society when, as soon as anyone speaks their mind or says something remotely off-colour, there's usually a reaction bordering on the hysterical, followed by widespread condemnation and ultimately a demand for a grovelling apology.

I realise none of us is compelled to watch the interminable displays of professional log-rolling and improbable frocks otherwise known as movie awards ceremonies; but somehow the obsession of the broadcasting media with these festivals of self-congratulation leaves us with no escape. Thus, at 7am yesterday, I – along with everyone else whose reluctant emergence into daily consciousness is punctuated by Radio 4's news bulletins – had to endure the sound of a hyper-ventilating Meryl Streep (pictured) telling an invited audience at the "Orange Baftas" that her performance in The Iron Lady "located something real".

You think twice about even letting kids walk the dog round the block these days which is a shame. I don't know whether Swallows and Amazons [Hannon has written the music for a new stage version] was quite fanciful for the 1930s – to let children go off on their own for a fortnight – but it wouldn't happen now. There's a lot of interesting themes going on [in Arthur Ransome's book] – mores concerning what you can let children do. I don't how much has really changed and how much is media-induced paranoia.
