Don't Speak with actor Harrie Hayes

EThis week Miriam speaks to Harrie Hayes! Harrie is a British actor with a penchant for comedy (she is very funny) who is one fifth of zazU, actual Queens on Horrible Histories, advertisers’ dream go to face and much more besides. We talk about the journey from AM DRAM to DRAM DRAM and her plans for writing and making her own show. We did talk for 20 minutes on Brexit but we edited that out as we do care about your earholes. This Don’t Speak was recorded in the Tudor Mansion (not at all a helpful reference) that is The Southbank Centre in London’s second floor, which Miriam for some reason thought was be deadly quiet. It was not. Which is why it sounds a little like we’re in a public swimming pool. Follow Harrie on twitter @harriehayes Don’t Speak can be found at (OUR ALL NEW) instagram + twitter @dontspeakpod
