The lady on my arm doesn’t have any colour, was a while ago.
looking at it reminds me of these things:
1. I have never laughed so much on a shoot in my life.
2. Cait and I both forgot to wear bras, like the dirty hippies we are. Someone on the day suggested all the girls should “go free like the sisters”. Yes, it will be the name of our inevitable folk band.
3. The entire thing was shot in reverse. We actually started filming in the field and finished off in the house. It was the middle of winter and we had snot running out of our noses and sipped champagne in between filming, which is why our “acting” gets progressively manic. Note Cait breaking the 4th wall at 35 seconds in.
