Derek the Donkey
They say never work with children or animals but we’ve just had the pleasure of working with a true old pro whilst filming for our friends at Richmond Education. Meet Derek the donkey from Spitalfields City Farm, who, until we shouted ‘action’, had been munching quietly on a bag of hay. This was the one and only take needed for this scene and after the camera was turned off, Derek went quietly back to his bag of hay never to be heard of again. Derek we salute your fine work and expect you to be receiving your Equusty card very soon and appearing in Ass You Like It at The RSC.
