We had cats growing up, yeah I don't have a cat now, but I had a cat until I was 15 at home Me and Bob got on really well, he came round to my house a few weeks before we started filming And then he'd be- we got on really well And then in the dressing room in the day, I'd bring my guitar in, and he'd be sitting in my guitar case, having a rest We got on really well James was brilliant at kind of- It's quite hard to get a cat that knows you so well, to then be comfortable just nipping onto somebody else's shoulders while they walk around a busy London street But it was incredible And you know, we'd have these little things, like I'd put Bob on my shoulders and we'd go for a little walk up and down And after we did that, Bob would then realise I was a safe person to stand on, and be comfortable and sit on my shoulders It was just funny little things like that That's incredible – you can't even get a dog to do that and they're easily trained Well yeah, Bob is just very receptive I mean, he had his eye on the prize didn't he, he wanted to be on the poster He was going to get involved in that film He knew this was his shot It was his shot, yeah His make-or-break deal Sometimes actors have to do a chemistry test with another actress or actor, Did you have to do a chemistry test with Bob? It wasn't meant to be Bob in the film even, it was meant to be four cats Which also are in the film as well, there are other cats which were trained for things like jumping on a bus, and the stunts, basically And they were brilliant as well, with brilliant handlers that trained them But then we found that Bob, having had the experience of being around so many people in his life, was just very zen, very cool And he could sit down whilst people were walking past on the pavement and not bat an eyelid And that was amazing, so we ended up using him a lot Wow, I just died when I saw him in the scarf I almost cried in the screening just then Did you on set? He's a cutie isn't he, he's lovely, and he was just very cool It was weird, because I didn't know the bit beforehand Like some people are just massive, massive fans And I remember thinking it's a bit like – I don't have kids – but I imagine it's a bit like when people see a baby and they just don't even say hi to the mum or dad They go straight for the baby like that And walking around with Bob on your shoulders, it was this amazing beacon coming off you And people were just blown away to see James and Bob walking around Covent Garden You know, they're icons of Covent Garden now So yeah, it was cool Getting to know James, did that make the story hit home a bit more? Well I was already very touched and moved, and felt like it must have been a very hard journey that James had gone on, from reading the script and the book And then, having- before I met him, before he came round to my house, I'd watched loads of interviews with him and got this idea of who he was and what he might be like But then for him to actually come round and for us to have- I think the first night, we spent about five hours just talking and playing guitars, and just hanging out, basically And he was just so open and up for sharing things and details about his life, maybe things that weren't even in the book Whatever it was that I felt might be helpful to know he was very kind to share, really And he just wanted it to be right, for the story to be right So I took all the information I could from James I also went to drug clinics and addiction centres to speak to both patients and doctors Because you have to build up all angles to really understand it, I think Some people might be able to explain what it's like for them, from their point of view But a doctor might be able to give you a scientific version of what it is, what's happening in your blood stream at that point when you're coming off something Things like that, which was really useful to get a handle on You don't want to try and portray addiction or homelessness or anything like that, without having a clear understanding of it Otherwise, there's a danger of just generalising it.
