Great British Film: The East is East at 21 Interviews. No.2 - Lesley Nicol who played Auntie Annie
We're continuing celebrating 21 years since the brilliant and ground breaking East is East burst into our cinemas. The classic BAFTA Award Winning Brit Flick was an hilarious movie with serious undertones - tackling both racism and domestic violence. Here Lesley Nicol talks about playing Auntie Annie, Ella Khan's best friend who helps to bring some great comedy to the film which is set in 1970s Salford. This interview will be followed by a third chat with Chris Bisson who played Ella's son Saleem.
