Q: Hi Andrew, I was fortunate enough to catch a pre-screening of Pride in London, and thought it was one of the most courageous, self-aware and powerful pieces of film-making I've seen. Your performance was spectacular, and some scenes were heartbreakingly raw - dressing gowns and socks outside Gay's the Word was a particular favourite.
I understand that the directors chose to 'blend' the stories of your character and Jonathan's real-life partner, which I think comes off very well. To what extent were you able to work with the film's real-life counterparts/their journals of the time, and to what extent were you left to interpret the role for yourself?
