Simon McBurney: ‘We need to begin again’

Robbie Jack

In all the interviews I read with Simon McBurney, he was painted as a very difficult figure to talk to. I found the opposite. He asked about me, the birds, how lockdown was going. His style of conversation is definitely unique – he pauses for five or ten seconds after every question, and his stories meander unexpectedly at length – but his answers always lead somewhere exciting.

I loved speaking to him, and I’m proud of this piece.
