    Rant screen: John Owen, your character plays the flute unstable, and there are a lot of jokes about flute players. Of all the instruments in the orchestra, why did you choose to risk upsetting this section?

    John Owen Lowe: Great question. I feel that this may be the only section of the orchestra I can win in a fight against, most likely, the truth. No, we love the flute on set, to be clear to my flute brothers and sisters out there.

    Sian Clifford: This show is a love letter.

    John Owen Lowe: Absolutely right. We just celebrate with the flute. It’s a nice machine, but we all admit it; It’s a little silly to watch it play out under the sponsorship we have on the show. Our co-creator Victor Fresco grew up playing the flute, so I feel he’s entitled to poke fun at it a little bit.

    Sian, I’ve done this kind of thing before FleabagBut what does it feel like to act out the scenes alongside the showrunners? Is this additional pressure or does it make things easier?

    Sian Clifford: My experience with her has been positive in exactly the same way that working with friends has been positive. This means that people bring more to the negotiating table. When you find the creator there you can ask questions, [and even] stupid questions. I like it, personally, because it feels like a more collaborative environment. For me, it’s a wonderful thing.

    John Owen Your character struggles a bit with being in his father’s shadow. While the show was coming together and being developed, did you have conversations with your dad about your experience being the son of someone who was grounded your whole life?

    John Owen Lowe: I’ve had a lot of conversations about this with my therapist; I don’t know how long I had with my parents. The truth is, I’ve had 27 years to navigate so far. While I haven’t figured out how to do it perfectly, I think this show was a reflection of how tumultuous that journey was, but also how rewarding it was at times. And my dad was very supportive all the way, at least as supportive as he could be.

    Sian, you’re so good at being such a fun character for these really big characters. Is there something about this type of role that appeals to you as an actor?

    Sian Clifford: I think because actually, it’s less pressure, but you get to have all the fun. I just love when you have a dynamic where you have a lot to play with and bounce around, especially if you’re up against someone like Rob Lowe, who’s very experienced. You can’t help but have a great time and feel inspired and educated as all this is going on.
