“When I was asked to do this project it was a dream come true,” says Moss. “My work has been inspired by his music for so many years and not a day goes by on set where I don’t have Max’s music playing in my ears before a take. His music and my acting have gone hand in hand for a long time. So for me the opportunity to act to one of his most prolific pieces was such an incredible honour. Working with George and this entire team was so artistically fulfilling and an experience I will never forget.”
