Marrisse Whittaker is the co-owner with her husband Bob or Orion TV who brought to your screens Mothertruckers and Banger Boys.
Before she and Bob founded Orion TV Marrisse worked as a makeup artists working with stars such as Judy Dench, Robson Green, Steven Tompkinson, James Mason, Rex Harrison, Vanessa Redgrave, Peter O’Toole and many more.
You can hear what goes into the making of a movie, what are the tricks of the trade, how do make up people keep track of the effects needed with shoots maybe weeks apart. How do you paint a bruise that has to fade over several days of on screen time that could be months apart in real time. Marrisse will tell you.
Then after a change of careers she moved into script writing for show such as Byker Grove, Hollyoaks and Doctors.
She was there when people such as Ant and Dec, Donna Air and Jill Halfpenny started their careers.
So what was Ant and Dec like as child stars behind the scenes, which one was dressed in the cute sailors suit and what are they like now.
Listen and you will find out.
It's good to talk.
