After finishing the first day of shooting for The Book, I coaxed the team a few miles along the coast to the old fishing town of Leigh on Sea… It was a beautiful evening, and a lovely way to wind down after a very busy day.
People often knock Southend, or ask me if I would move away ‘given half a chance’ – and I say no… With this simple beauty on my doorstep, why would I ever want to leave?
