When I made a film called 'Force of Habit', it was shortlisted for the Autism Uncut awards ceremony. I got in touch with a journalist from iNews and she interviewed me over the phone about myself and my influences.
I saw myself in the most unlikely movie character and look where it got me!
I was interviewed over the phone and I answered my questions carefully.
Funny story: the interviewer asked me a question over the phone about this picture I did of Berenger from 'Rhinoceros'.
And she asked, "Is this you?"
My answer was "Kind of", but I made the picture with the intention of autistic people relating to him.
But Tuco Ramirez was the one I saw the most of myself reflected in. My fiery temper, my unique way of doing things, my broad, shambling body language, the way I spoke and acted without thinking first; sure, I fell in love with him, but it had dawned on me that day in May 2015 that I didn't just love Tuco, I was him.
This is the interview in print.
