I’m sure by now that you’re all completely fed up with my constant plugging of Scream Street on TV (I’ll hush up soon – I promise!), but I do have one more – very personal – thing to say about it…
Back in the summer this year (2015), my Dad’s cancer took a drastic turn for the worse and the family had to accept that he wouldn’t be with us for much longer. We were all utterly heart-broken, as you can imagine.
My Dad was always one of my biggest supporters, and he both helped and inspired me every single day in my chosen career. I simply couldn’t have stuck through all the ups and downs without him. Now, as I finally approached a new milestone with the TV show, it looked as though he wouldn’t be with us to enjoy it.
Step up the show’s producers, Coolabi, and animators, Factory. When they heard about this, they began to send me everything they could – Scream Street artwork, photos, animatics and even partial video clips so that I could view them with my Dad in his final few weeks. He loved every moment, and I will never be able to thank them enough for that.
I love you and miss you, Dad. This series is for you and Mum. x
