Nostalgic for the 90s: Jason Hughes on playing Warren in cult drama This Life

Jason Hughes played Welsh Warren in the 90s cult drama This Life. The series was based around 20 something lawyers living in South London.  Warren also happened to be gay. Gay characters as complex as Warren had never really existed on tv while Welsh voices in mainstream UK telly were rare too. So being gay and Welsh presented different challenges for both the character and the actor as Jason explains in this interview with MIM's Ashley Byrne.

The Distinct Nostalgia theme is owned by MIM Productions and composed by Rebecca Applin and Chris Warner.
