  • After the session we sat down to chat with David Yates. He's directed so many things other than Harry Potter that I've liked and he is such a humble person that I suddenly found the bravery to talk to him. I'm not good at speaking really, I listen and observe as a rule and sometimes I chatterbox but to ask for something with my voice, instead of in writing which comes easy, I always find really hard, so to ask a stranger a question with my voice is difficult and when they are such a well known person I guess I get a bit reticent and don't want to intrude with my humble questions.

    David though, was a humble man from everything I'd seen during the seminar he'd given, and here he was afterwards sitting down to have a chat with us, so open. People were asking him questions, many obviously angling to send him scripts but I had something that was burning me for a long time that I thought he'd be able to answer for me more definitively than advice I'd been given by others.

    I asked. He answered honestly and with understanding and. I found accord, assurance. It felt like a little warm spot in my breast that would always be with me from here on. I found I liked the feeling.
