I LOVED FILMING Paddington 2. I have to say it was a joy. From auditioning with Nina Gold’s casting office to getting fitted in wardrobe as Giuseppe the barber. My 4 year old daughter (Luciana) was beside herself during this time. When we went to see the film toghether I realised what a special film it was. Paul king the director, was also one of the nicest directors. Creative, sweet and such fun.
I think the reviews say it all. The one i like is: ‘Paddington 2” is “The Godfather Part II” of Peruvian bear movies, a sequel that surpasses the superb original.
