45 year old Cuza is suffering from a disease which has prematurely aged him physically. So each day's filming began for me five hours before the rest of the cast while my latex make-up was applied and a wig placed over a bald cap hiding my own hair. On 12 occasions this was done and then I waited all day in vain to be filmed.
