Simona Brown, speaking to BT about her role, said: “Louise is quite relatable. She is a single mother who pours all of her life into her son, to the point where she has kind of forgotten herself and who she is. I think she lacks confidence.”
“I was completely floored when I read the scripts. I was like, ‘Mum…. this happened!’ I couldn’t believe it. It was amazing, and I was like, ‘I’d love to do this’, so I went ahead and did a self-tape. The rest is history.”
