It took 32 episodes to get here. 32 episodes until I realised that I could actually get to speak to the lead actress from my favourite film of all time. My friends, family and people who sit next to me on buses will know very well how much I love Night of the Comet. I'm obsessed.

It's the film I've watched more than any other and has influenced me the most. For those that know my film Dawn of the Deaf.. without Night of the Comet, there is no Dawn of the Deaf! The concept of two normal people being the last people left on earth sent my brain into overdrive when I first saw it late at night on Channel 4 as a child. It's never gone down a gear since.

It was my absolute privilege to talk to an actress whose every line I could quote back to her (with the same inflections I'll have you know!) and who put up with my very specific questions about the making of Night of the Comet.

We also talk Weekend at Bernies AND The Last Starfighter of course! I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to CMS and will be speaking to her lovely co-star in NOTC, Kelli Maroney soon.

@jedshepherd on twitter for any feedback or suggestions on who you'd like me to interview!
