October 2013

After Dad’s Thanksgiving, the administration of his estate and running the farm became the focus of my daily life.

However, for a couple of days in October, I managed to escape my familial duties to rain-swept Dorset to work on David Nicholls’  adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, a Fox Searchlight feature directed by Thomas Vinterberg, starring Carey Mulligan, Tom Sturrdige and Mathias Schoenaerts. Modest though my contribution was, it was a very welcome reminder that farming was not my main business! The intense world of filming is so completely absorbing that, after two days, I felt like I’d been away for at least a week!
