PREVIEW: 'Dark Money' Roundtable - With Jill Halfpenny, Lewis Arnold & Victor Jenkins!Jul 16, 2019
Dark Money - directed by Lewis Arnold, cast by Victor Jenkins, starring Jill Halfpenny - is a dramatic triumph.
The show tells the fictional story of The Mensahs, whose lives are torn apart, after accepting a substantial pay off, to cover up the sexual abuse of their son, Issac.
The damage done by this dark money, runs deep, and the price of taking it is high.
In this roundtable podcast, I sit down with Lewis, Victor and Jill, to find out EXACTLY what went in to producing this outstanding 4-part series.
During our chat, we discuss:
- Lewis', Victor's, and Jill's first impressions of the script.
- The casting process behind the show.
- How Jill prepared for her Dark Money audition.
- Jill's recall, and why she didn't think she had landed the role.
