#249 Sharon Horgan: On Writing, Producing & Acting

Today’s guest is the brilliant Sharon Horgan. She is a BAFTA award-winning Irish actress, co-founder of Merman, writer, producer and director, and perhaps best known for her multiple award-winning sitcom Catastrophewhich she co-writes and stars in with Rob Delaney. She was nominated for two BAFTA Awards and won two British Comedy Awards for her BBC show Pulling which she co-wrote and starred in. Sharon co-founded the independent production company Merman which shot the first series of Motherland which was co-written by Sharon and aired on BBC Two to great critical acclaim. Today Sharon is on the podcast to discuss the feature film she’s currently in called Military Waves in which she stars alongside Kristin Scott Thomas. The film is inspired by a BBC factual series about a choirmaster who selects and trains amateur singers while their partners are away serving in Afghanistan. It’s a really feel-good film, with some very touching moments too. Hope you enjoy this episode and if you did please do leave a rating or review!
