Sheridan star struck by Kula Shaker

Sheridan Smith was starstruck by Crispian Mills

Sheridan Smith has confessed she was starstruck when she worked on a film directed by former Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills.

The 30-year-old actress stars alongside Simon Pegg in Crispian's directorial debut A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, and revealed she was a fan of the Hush singer when she was younger.

Sheridan said: "I loved working with Simon Pegg. He's a genius, and I only did a day on the film but I was like a sponge and just watched him and took in how he does it all.

"And the director of the movie is the lead singer of Kula Shaker and I actually went to Doncaster dome when I was a kid and watched him because I used to be a Kula Shaker fan. So I was very starstruck on that set."

The Gavin And Stacey star is supporting MasterCard's Priceless London programme, which allows card users access to exclusive experiences such as backstage theatre access and intimate gigs.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
