What’s the weirdest thing to have happened to you when making a film?
I was filming in China for Interval II in 2007. One night, at the round house, I thought I could see a white figure with white hair standing at the bottom of the staircase, on the other side of the round house. I was alone and everyone had gone to sleep, but I needed to know if it was a ghost or not, so I walked round to get a closer look – upon close inspection, I saw a mop standing on end!
