“It’s extraordinary to find work where you don’t feel underestimated, or that you have to be seductive”

Saffron Burrows jumped at the chance to work with writer Lorien Haynes on Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men - 24 short films directed by 21 women to support survivors of sexual abuse. She tells Haynes why she is impassioned by the cause

Black comedy Everything I Ever Wanted To Tell My Daughter About Men was originally written by Lorien Haynes for her daughter, Lilac, 17. It debuts this month as a reading, supported by Psychologies, at Shakespeare’s Globe in London to raise funds for RISE, a non-profit organisation that helps victims of sexual assault and rape.

Haynes explains how her project came to fruition and how Burrows, who directs two of the short films, became an integral part of it: ‘I started the year with thank-you emails to eight people,’ says Haynes, ‘people who moved mountains to support my passion project. Saffron is one of them.’

Of their friendship and collaboration, she says: ‘I first met Saffron in a changing room in Covent Garden in the 90s. She had recently starred in Circle Of Friends and In The Name Of The Father and I was star-struck! Two decades later, I met her again with her wife Alison Balian [the two have since separated amicably] and their children Dashiel, seven, and Daisy, three. We are all making s’mores round a hotel fire and she is appearing in Amazon’s flagship show, Mozart In The Jungle, and I’m still star-struck! She waves a marshmallow at me and says she’s just trying to balance two children with a career.
