Naomie Harris, Working class talent, Gurrumul

Actress Naomie Harris talks about her latest role in Brad Peyton's big-screen video game adaptation Rampage, which sees her fighting a trio of oversized genetically-modified predators alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Has it got harder for working class talent to make a career on stage and screen? This week the Anna Scher Theatre School, which is responsible for launching the careers of working class actors such as Kathy Burke, Daniel Kaluuya and Adam Deacon, celebrates 50 years, and there are calls for drama schools to remove audition fees to boost access to more formal training. To discuss how working class talent can thrive in 2018 we are joined by director Asif Kapadia, producer Rebecca O'Brien and actor Johnny Harris. The aboriginal singer Gurrumul died last year at the age of 46. Before his death, the highest-selling indigenous musician of all time had spent four years working on his album Djarimirri with his long-term friend, producer and manager Michael Hohnen. On the line from Sydney, Michael reflects on Gurrumul's life, music and early death, as well as the richness and influence of Gurrumul's own Yolngu culture.
