Why Dawn French’s New Drama Is Delicious!

IAIN GLEN

Delbehtscenes-12017-01-31-20h55m 

Plays Sam’s husband, Leo. Iain, 55, lives with his partner, actress Charlotte Emmerson, and their two daughters, Mary, nine, and Juliet, four, in London.

Leo’s a charming rogue. He’s very loving and a good father, but he’s selfish. There’s not a malicious bone in his body but he’s like a lot of men, I think; he doesn’t think about what he’s doing when he’s doing it and what the consequences might be. Viewers will hopefully like him, but perhaps not everything he does.

Unlike Leo, I’m not profoundly unfaithful! But I think I’m quite a sensual person, and I certainly enjoy the good things in life; good food, good wine, and I’m madly in love with the person I’m with. So I do relate to that.

Sam and Leo’s relationship is a good one. People assume that if someone is unfaithful there must be something wrong. But that’s often not the case. People are unfaithful for any number of reasons and, especially for men, it’s not always a reflection on the relationship. Sam and Leo have been together for a long time, so I think all that’s happened is that their relationship has plateaued. For them, it’s a case of opposites attract – Sam’s very organised and Leo’s more chaotic, while his relationship with Dawn’s character is one of similarities attract.

Emilia and I were friends already but it was the first time I’d worked with Dawn. Everyone told me what a gorgeous lady she is and they were right. She’s great fun, talkative, very open and cares about everyone on the set. We hung out a lot during the day chatting about everything.

I’m definitely not a natural cook like Leo. I’m good at following recipes but I have no flair or instinct. When it comes to a role, the trick is to do whatever you’re required to do within the scene and not think about anything else, so for Delicious I became an expert at chopping and whisking!

Delicious was a dream job. It was summer, it was Cornwall, I was eating great food and pretending to make love. It felt like a ridiculously good way to earn a living.
