Soundtracking with Edith Bowman
20 Apr 2018
In a unique weekly podcast, Edith Bowman sits down with a variety of film directors, actors, producers and composers to talk about the music that inspired them and how they use music in their films, from their current release to key moments in their career. The music chosen by guests is woven into the interview and used alongside clips from their films.
Edith Bowman says:
John Simm is such an accomplished actor, one with music very much at the heart of a lot of what he does. Enjoy this entertaining and fun ride through his relationship with music, both professionally and personally.
John has appeared in many great productions on stage and screen. He is perhaps best known for his roles in Life on Mars as Sam Tyler and Doctor Who as The Master, with recent appearances in Collateral on the BBC and Trauma on ITV.
His films include Wonderland, Human Traffic, and 24 Hour Party People – and we’ll obviously be featuring tracks from all of these projects throughout the conversation. He’s also an accomplished musician, with plenty more about his exploits on that front featuring too.
