Spent a very enjoyable two hours last night in the company of Guillermo Del Toro who was taking part in an onstage interview for BAFTA: A Life In Pictures series. Interviewed by Jason Wood, the articulate and loquacious Mexican talked about everything from his childhood, his time at film school, right through each of his movies. He was, as usual, erudite, funny and wonderfully course. And talkative. In fact, the event ran so long that there was only time for two audience questions — one of which, inevitably, was about The Hobbit. The event was filmed and will, at a later date, be available to view via the bafta website.
