It’s been approximately forever since I answered questions so here are a few recent ones. Sorry for being lazy and taking forever. The best way to get a quick response is through Twitter. As always, check the Frequently Asked Questions.
Yesterday (17th November) I had the brilliant opportunity to go and watch Toby Everett’s short film Personal Appearance. It stars Emmett Scanlan as a messed-up soap star, Eoin, destroying himself in his own miserable fame, drink, coke and hook-ups.
(contains minor spoilers for the film)
The Undead Prophet has a Disciple
On the other other side of the argument is Simon (Hollyoaks’ Emmett Scanlan). He’s a very charismatic person, and he’s kind of damaged…’ Unlike most PDS sufferers, Scanlan is in his zombie make-up for the duration. ‘He’s out and proud’ says Mitchell (Dominic). ‘He’s coming at it in a spiritual, but also a prideful way…
And about the Undead Prophet. ‘He’s a big influence, on Simon especially. He’s a bit of a mystery.’
(thanks to thesuttonian for this summary!)
Personal Appearance has its first screening this month and after filming wrapped I was fortunate enough to grab an interview with Emmett about filming, his character Eoin and his thoughts on fame.

Last summer, Toby Everett’s crowd-funded film Personal Appearance was made and is getting its premiere this month. Writer and director Toby, and star (who you might just have heard of) Emmett J Scanlan were kind enough to let me ask some questions about the film. Below you can read Toby’s great interview. Tomorrow I’ll be posting Emmett’s interview too.
