Laurie met Director Jon Spira in glamorous central London to talk about The Last Jedi and his critically acclaimed documentary following the strange life experiences of extras from the original Star Wars trilogy, Elstree 1976. We covered a huge range of topics and got into the nitty gritty of the film industry itself, from Jon’s perspective as a filmmaker and scriptwriter. Get in touch with your thoughts on our discussion at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter, and make sure to check out his films – including the famous documentary about Oxford’s music scene, Anyone Can Play Guitar.
