Oh wow! :D Thank you so much!

As mentioned in the interview, John Finnemore has a new show coming up!

Six standalone episodes, they are six half hour comedy plays with a different cast and a different setting.

He will be acting in some of them; he’ll be the star in one, have a supporting role in a couple, just one line in a couple and not be in one or two.

It will be directed by David Tyler from Pozzitive again, and will come out next year.

Interview with John Finnemore, star and writer of Cabin Pressure.

In Italy we talked to him about Zurich, new upcoming shows and his favorite Cabin Pressure moment.

Next up! The interview.

I’d like to thank everyone who sent in questions for the interview with John Finnemore at EuroAirDotCon in Milan 2014. We got to use a lot during the long interview on Saturday, but unfortunately we weren’t allowed to film or transcribe that. I’d still like to let everyone know if their question came up, so in short I’ll put those down here. From memory, so they’re not exact quotes I’m afraid.

Lucas, USA - will Arthur make a cameo in other shows?
If he did, only we would know. John wouldn’t refer to him by name. But yes, he might.

Janna, Netherlands - were the characters based on real life people or made up entirely?
Some aspects were based on real life people but it doesn’t work if you try and stick to that one person. So instead one character would be based on several real life people; he’d take different character trades from different people.

Roo, UK - was the cat freezing in the hold ok?
Yes! That was why they landed, so the cat would be ok. No need to worry about the cat anymore!

Steph, Brighton - why did Carolyn and her sister Ruth fall out?
Ruth is a nasty piece of work.Carolyn left and married well and Ruth was jealous and just not a nice person.

Andy, Yorkshire - is there anyone you haven’t worked with but would like to?
Hundreds. Hugh Laurie, Michael Palin, Victoria Wood.

Kathryn, UK - when you’re writing sketches for JFSP, do you write them with the actor who will play the part in mind?
He didn’t used to but now he knows how their voices are used best, he does it more often.

And the last question was “what’s your favorite ‘since you ask me’ story” and he replied with “Well! Since you ask me for my favorite since you ask me!” (it was the goats one)

Some funny other details that have to be mentioned: John has read several manuals, some technical ones even. If he had lost his voice, who would’ve replaced him as Arthur? (he began to explain that they did it with Benedict and half way through went, wait, there’s no one here who doesn’t know this) I think he named Colin Hopp and Matt Green. Arthur drives a brown car, but what about John? He doesn’t have a car at the moment but used to drive a purple one.

We also got a scoop that is featured in the interview! More about that later.

Took my dad to see a recording of John Finnemore’s Souvenir Program and, of course, it was amazing! Snuck a few photos, quite pleased with them. Also, in Forbidden Planet I picked up a SIGNED and discounted copy of ‘The Hound of the D’urbervilles’ by Kim Newman, which I very much look forward to reading.

goalposthead:

Well it was brilliant at the recordings! also spotted Kevin Baker in the queue! but didn’t want to ask for an autograph he was chatting with someone. Sketches me and nitro-nine couldn’t stop laughing at because we had heard them at the tryouts, which led to laughing at the wrong times! Also TWO songs and TWO Since you ask me tales! I made a hat which John himself said would be better than Arthurs hat! Me and nitro-nine asked important questions to Mr Finnemore like What kind of otters where you thinking about in Ottery St Mary Then I told him about the otter at college and the wild one in Shetland. we also asked How many attempts it took for Martin to pass his driving test! Theory straight away and it would be Five or six attempts at his practical, so I did better than Martin Creiff!! Then I got a hug from John who gives lovely hugs! Simon and Carrie both loved the T-shirt I had, but Margret never came out and Lawry left before he signed anything for me but I got an autograph from Carrie and Simon! And I have a photo and I can see zendarenn creeping in the back there! and Simon with his tenticle monster from her! Carrie wrote “excellent T-shirt. Wear no shoes” and Simon put kisses after and said it was a habit. Simon and Carrie are brilliant!
