#TSP006 - Danny

August 17, 2017

Happy Thursday! Hope you're all well. Here we go again. It's episode six! I say "here we go again" but this weeks guest is surprisingly different. Different in that usually, we tell you who it is and a little bit about them. Can't do that this week. Our guest wants to remain unnamed and this is something we respect on the Two Shot Podcast. For those of you who don't know (and why would you?) we give each guest freedom of edit which means they can talk freely and openly without consoring themselves and feeling inhibited during the chat. Once we've recorded and producer Griff has worked his magic in cleaning it all up and making it sound super sweet, we offer our guests the chance to have a listen and check that they've not said anything they're not comfortable with. In this instance, due to what our guest does for a living now, it made total sense.
It's another great story and one we're pleased he agreed to chat about.
Get the kettle on and let's get going.

#TSP005 - Kate Ashfield

August 10, 2017

Greetings Two Shot Pod listeners. It's that time of the week again and this time it's the turn of the magnificent Kate Ashfield. Craig and producer Griff took a trip to the Big Smoke and visited Kate in her super-cool East London flat. They talked drama groups, risk-taking, balancing writing and acting, and Gary Oldman's school reports. It's a fabulous chat. 

You'll know Kate from her brilliant portrayals in Shaun of the DeadThe Little Life, and Late night Shopping, or her myriad appearances on the stage and screen. She's a wonderful and inspiring woman and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we had making it.

#TSP004 - William Ash

August 3, 2017

Episode 4. EPISODE 4! ALREADY! That's right. We're a month in and it's flying by.
This week Craig & producer Griff travelled to Oldham to pop the kettle on with professional northerner WILLIAM ASH!! Once the tea was brewed we got right down to business. We talk about loads with Will; from football to broken legs to ending up in the "Children's Ward". You'll quickly learn that Will has both feet firmly rooted in the North West.

You'll know Will from Clocking Off, Waterloo Road, Where The Heart Is and Shameless amongst many other television, stage and film appearances. It was a real pleasure to have a sit down and a chat with him and his insights and passion for his job were so great to listen to.

This is another episode that we here at TWO SHOT we're immensely proud of... well, we're proud of all of them, otherwise we wouldn't send 'em out to you. We're thrilled you're with us, but we're still only starting out here, so if you're enjoying the series, PLEASE take a few minutes to review us and rate on whatever platform you listen to us on and tell your mates about us. Appreciate it.

#TSP003 - Susan Lynch

July 27, 2017

It's Thursday. It's The Two Shot Podcast!
How the devil are you? You well?  Hope so.

It's episode 3 and this weeks guest is multi award winning actor (not actress.....that bit will make sense when you hear!) SUSAN LYNCH... Producer Griff travelled to the Cotswolds whist Craig travelled to his living room to have a sit down with Susan...and this week it's craig & producer Griff who get gifts at the top of ep. Thank you Susan!

We all thought it may have felt slightly odd sitting down and discussing stuff but the conversation flowed and even Craig learns and hears things he never knew.....you all know why, right? Susan Lynch is Craig's wife of 12 years. Did you already know that? Well now you do.

Susan talks openly about her childhood in Northern Ireland, and the support and stumbling blocks she overcame with great honesty and passion.  It's a fantastic episode and we're thrilled she agreed to be on... she could've said no!

Susan first came to the public's attention in one of her first television roles, starring alongside Robbie Coltrane in CRACKER. Since then she has appeared in many theatrical productions, ranging from plays at the National Theatre, The Royal Court, the Old Vic and also THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at the Young Vic.

Susan's passion is of course, film. She worked with Johnny Depp in the cult picture FROM HELL and worked twice with celebrated writer and director John Sayles. You may have more recently caught Susan in the award winning HAPPY VALLEY, where she shocked the nation by... ah well, I won't say just incase you havn't seen it.

We really hope you enjoy it!

TSP.

#TSP002 - Neil Morrissey

July 20, 2017

Here we are again! It's EPISODE 2 of THE TWO SHOT PODACAST. After a triumphant opener last week with Nottingham's First Lady, Vicky McClure, this week Craig & producer Griff travel from East Midlands to the great city of Manchester to get the kettle on with the deliciously eloquent and brutally honest NEIL MORRISSEY. Depending on your age you may know Neil's work from Boon, Bob the Builder and Men Behaving Badly. More recently he has appeared in the BBC's Waterloo Road and Line of Duty, BUT this being THE TWO SHOT PODCAST we don't discuss things like that. We go back to start as Neil talks (frankly) about his start in life. From being up in court at a very young age to arriving at drama school with just a bag and a few jumpers.  The amazing thing about Neil is is positivity that has never wavered through this life. We adore this man. We adore this episode and we hope you do too. It's brilliant!

Please note: As this is a no holds bar chat, there is some fruity language from the outset. If you're listening in the car and the kids/parents/grandfather/grandmother/godson/goddaughter/sensitive-eared pet are in the car with you, you might want to lend them some earplugs. Failing that, stick your headphones into Episode 2 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST with NEIL MORRISSEY.

#TSP001 - Vicky McClure

July 6, 2017

Here it is! The first episode of the Two Shot Podcast: a podcast about actors and acting. Our host Craig Parkinson and producer Griff went down to sunny Nottingham to have a brew and a chat with the actor Vicky McClure. Vicky was honest and frank about her early years as an actor in her local drama workshop and getting her breakthrough roles, and she talked openly about her route to becoming an actor.

Vicky first came to prominance in Shane Meadows' brilliant film A Room for Romeo Brass before going on to star as Lol in the iconic This Is England. She has since appeared in acclaimed television series including the BBC's Line of Duty (alongside our host) and the Replacement, ITV's Broadchurch and the films Filth, Hummingbird and Svengali.

We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we have making it. We're a brand new podcast and need all the help we can get to get our episodes heard.
