The day I met Guillermo del Toro

On Monday I had the privilege to personally meet Guillermo del Toro, one of my favourite film makers and possibly the kindest person in this business. He graciously took the time to talk to me about his upcoming film ‘The Shape of Water’ and about some of his recurring themes. I also got to meet Alexandre Desplat and listen to his incredible score. Not a bad way of returning to work after my maternity leave!

It’ll be a few months until I’m able to share the interview with you, but meanwhile, here’s a gif we made:
