She's just been such an inspiration to me. If it wasn't for Nan I wouldn't have known about university. So I wanted to make something to give back.

We put an advert out to cast for a nan, but felt that nobody could tell the story better that Nan herself. So that's when I chose to actually ask Nan to do it. That's why the performance is so great because she was so natural and she really felt all the emotions.
