Here’s the second interview about ‘Little Birds (the series)’, this time from TheNews.com:

Juno Temple was 17 when she read Little Birds, a collection of erotic short stories by Anais Nin.

“They really affected me, and woke a sexual sort of fire that I didn’t know I had”,” notes the London-born star, who grew up in Somerset, and has been acting since she was a young teenager. Now, 14 years later, the quirky actress is playing the lead role – New York heiress Lucy Savage – in Sky Atlantic’s adaptation of Nin’s book.“I made a lot of notes of little things that I wanted to add into the script, trying to get actual one-liner direct quotes from Little Birds, and I got a couple of them in there, which was really exciting. That was cool that everyone was open to me doing that.”

Set in Tangier International Zone in 1955, the contemporary and daring tale follows Lucy as she heads to exotic climes for love and marriage.When her husband Hugo does not greet her in the way she expected, she finds herself on a journey to freedom and independence. We see Lucy discovering the surprising, diverse and degenerate world of Tangier, in Morocco, a country quivering on the cusp of independence. Along the way, she meets a myriad of characters including a scandalous dominatrix, Cherifa Lamor (Yumna Marwan) who particularly captures Lucy’s imagination.


The show was shot in Tarifa in Spain, as well in Manchester.While on location, did the cast have any particularly memorable cast nights out after filming had finished for the day?

“When wasn’t there one?!” Temple quickly replies, grinning.“Lots of dinners, lots of conversations, lots of laughter, lots of tears, lots of screaming, lots of hugging. It was great. It was also just an incredible learning experience. Which makes it extra cruel we have to be doing press for this via Zoom, because of a pandemic!” cries Temple. “It really would be nice to be together to do this for real.”
