Yippee, Tee hee hee. No more paying for childcare for me.... one is 17.. & one is 12... that is unless the 17 yr old goes off study...ing. Then down the back of the sofa I’ll have to delve...

Lila Rawlings 9th March 2018

Child care - whilst making films & TV drama - has been a huge challenge for me - and most of the brilliant women I work with. My son is now 13 but I want to support initiatives for making it possible for women in our industry to fulfill their creative potential whist raising their families. Happy to be part of this community.

Mothers and Fathers should be far supported more in the whole of show business. The myth of being less productive in the workplace when having children must be imploded. It's total horse s*!t. Many of the greatest artists have been parents. Let's celebrate that by implementing official measures on film sets etc. #BudgetThatBaby x James Krishna Floyd x
