I met Beanie Feldstein at Helsinki airport en route for the States. After a little confusion over our jackets – I accidentally picked up her grey one thinking that it was mine (even though mine was purple) – we soon became firm friends, looking forward to filming together.
Many of my Finnish colleagues were also in the airport heading for the same flight. These included GW and IH, who gave me the most enthusiastic welcome. I hoped that the students had witnessed this, and now understood the level of my international standing.
