As part of their pre-Edinburgh publicity, Hattie and Norm have a short but perfectly formed interview for Times Online.
Shockingly, the interviewer shows at least a modicum of Dwarf knowledge by getting the number of episodes Hattie has been in correct, but let himself down by being WRONG about Norman’s (I count 21 episodes for Norm, but go ahead and prove me wrong if you can just about be bothered.)
It was stupid. I’d moved to Edinburgh and I wanted one rehearsal day less, they said yeah, you don’t have to do the full week Norman, all friendly and nice, and then the fee dropped massively. And I said, well what’s that about then? I said that’s not fair. So I stood out for it.
…interests me, though. We’ve known that circumstances around Norman moving to Edinburgh meant he ending up having to leave, but he makes it sound like he was unfairly shafted. Not sure I’d fully take his word for it, mind, but it’s yet another instance of him being less than complimentary about his former employers.
