    Bobby Berk

    Bobby Berk

    Bobby Berk grew up in a devoutly religious household in one of the most conservative parts of the US.
    He knew he was different from a lot of the people around him - but he didn’t have a way to figure it out.
    So he decided to run.
    He talks to Bryony about taking an unconventional path to success, the joys of working on Queer Eye -- and the bravest thing he ever did.

    Eddie Marsan

    Eddie Marsan

    Eddie Marsan grew up without much money about, and in a place where wanting to be an actor was like wanting to be an astronaut.
    It took him years to break through. But the struggle taught him some invaluable life lessons.
    He talks to Bryony about family, hard graft, and working with Scorsese and Spielberg.

    Chidera Eggerue - a.k.a. the Slumflower

    Chidera Eggerue - a.k.a. the Slumflower

    Chidera Eggerue started a movement with one simple question: why does society insist she wear a bra? 
    Her quest for answers has made her one of the UK's leading campaigners for body positivity - and an inspiration to anyone feeling overlooked by 'traditional' notions of beauty.
     But she wasn’t always so comfortable in her own skin.

    Rachel Shenton

    A few years ago, Rachel Shenton had an idea for a film about a deaf girl born to a hearing family. She’d never written a screenplay before, but she put it to paper -- and ended up scraping together enough money to get it made. 
    What happened next took everyone by surprise.
