Casualty star Amanda Mealing has described playing her character, Rachel, in north London-set film drama Still as like a 'psychological therapy session'.
Amanda co-stars with former Games of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen in Still, the story of a damaged photographer who has recently lost his son and is drawn into a battle with local teenagers.
Amanda said: "The brilliant thing, with good writing, is the character is almost there for you. Simon [Blake, writer/director] had given me a template, a fully fledged character, so it was just just a case of teasing out the fine aspects of it... and taking from the emotional journey that Rachel goes through during the filming.
"And it's about grief – for me I have to work on a person al level. I have to draw on the experiences similar to that I may have had. I've had my fair share of ups and downs in life, so it was a case of pulling those out and using those emotions."
