Manage episode 277841935 series 2819028
For my first ever Life & Soul podcast episode, I am absolutely honoured to be joined by a bona fide national treasure, the wonderful Dame Julie Walters.
Julie is one of the most loved English actresses, a comedienne and a star of countless film and TV productions including Billy Elliot, Harry Potter, Paddington and the much-loved Mamma Mia films.
Julie was also an extremely close friend of the late Victoria Wood and worked with her on many TV shows like Dinnerladies and the soap spoof Acorn Antiques. Julie has most recently been seen in the heart-warming remake of The Secret Garden (currently on Sky Cinema) playing the prickly Mrs Medlock.
Julie joins me to talk about her lockdown experience, her incredible recovery from bowel cancer and the joys of tree hugging. Oh, and I ask her whether this really is the end of her acting career.
This will certainly be one of the highlights of my career and I hope it provides you with some light relief during this incredibly challenging time.
If you enjoyed this episode, Julie’s new film, The Secret Garden is out now and definitely worth a watch!
