Niamh Algar • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #315
Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 315 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week Pip is joined by the pure marvellous actor and delight NIAMH ALGAR!
You can tell even like 5 minutes in that Pip was proper excited about this one… And naturally he was right to be, as Niamh is fantastic if you didn’t already know! You may have seen her in the beautiful and powerful ‘The Virtues’ alongside Distraction Pieces spiritual godfather Stephen Graham, and if you did you will adore this chat as Niamh goes IN on the whole process. As always, any Shane Meadows talk is fascinating and this time is no exception, as we get the pure goodness and intrigue from the process of making such a show and the deep personal digging involved in Niamh’s transformation into Dinah. Not only that, there’s further confirmation of that ‘being the lead in your own story’ point that comes up here and there on the podcast, and some good chat about her role in Desiree Akhavan’s ‘The Bisexual’, working with Guy Ritchie and OF COURSE a good amount about her upcoming film ‘Calm With Horses’, alongside Barry Keoghan and Cosmo Jarvis. Full on gold. Enjoy.
