Filming around Yorkshire was a major highlight for me. What a beautiful place to be. It offered us so many options to tell the best story we could. I can’t wait to come back and film something new here. It’s just lovely. I loved making it up north and I was so grateful for all the help and support from Screen Yorkshire. I’m very proud of the locations we used in the film.
