I must do a special on Keanu Reeves as he's such a committed physical actor. I'll try and find some more behind the scenes action to share with you from the John Wick series.

If you have suggestions for topics then please do not hesitate to get in touch. Due to non disclosure agreements it has become very difficult to talk about the work that I do until it has been released and that is often many months after the fact. I'm always looking for ideas and suggestions for topics of interest.
