Cast

Kate Hardie  |  Alison

Kate is a British actress, renowned for her roles in The Krays, Mona Lisa and recently National Treasure for Channel 4.

Jason Watkins | Andy

Jason plays Andy, a man who can’t bear whingers. In the face of adversity, he knows necessity is the mother of invention. When his trousers fall down, he makes his own braces.

Jonjo O'Neill | Magnus

Jonjo is a Stage and screen actor, and is an associated artist with the RSC. He has recently been seen on screen in Patrick Melrose and the Cohen brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

 Jonjo plays Magnus, who lost his father at a young age, so had a lot of responsibility as a result. At university, he was powerfully attracted to Neurotic girls. These days he feels a bit redundant around Alison because she’s perfectly capable of looking after herself.
