English actress Sophia Myles was so impressed by director David Mackenzie's script for HALLAM FOE she twice wrote to him pleading for a leading role. The Tristan and Isolde star admits she took desperate measures in a bid to secure the dream role of Kate Breck in the dark comedy. She says, "I've never done that before, but I absolutely loved the script. I met David, and got on really well with him. Then I didn't hear from him for a while. "So I sent him a follow-up letter. I know the idea of begging for a job is terribly embarrassing, but I just wanted to be a part of it."
