Actress and writer Charlie Covell talks about her adaptation for Channel 4 television of Charles S Forman’s comic series, The End of the F***ing World.

The series is about 17-year-olds James, who is sure he is a psychopath, and Alyssa, who is the cool and moody new girl at school. Together, they set off on a road trip in search of Alyssa’s real father.

Covell is an actress and writer and BAFTA Breakthrough Brit. Her first feature film, Burn Burn Burn, premiered at the 2016 London Film Festival and was nominated for a British Independent Film Award. She has played roles in Peep Show, The Inbetweeners, Misfits and Marcella, and also wrote two episodes of Russell T Davies’ series Banana.

Here she talks to Claire Armitstead, associate editor, culture, of the Guardian.

This event is part of St Hilda’s College day at the festival.
