Vanessa Alexander: Magik and Rose, Being Eve, and more...

Interviews - 2009

Vanessa Alexander wrote stage plays before turning her hand to writing, directing and producing on screen. She is best known for her feature film Magik and Rose, for producing innovative children's drama series Being Eve, and as a director on popular westie TV show Outrageous Fortune.

In this ScreenTalk, Alexander talks about:

  • How extreme persistence paid off early in her screen career when she got to make Magik and Rose
  • Why she thinks producer John Barnett gave her a break into producing with Being Eve
  • Directing Outrageous Fortune and why working on the first episode of the series was extremely stressful because the original idea was so good and expectation was very high
