The imdb.com page says you're filming 1917 right now. 

Although I could ask you a million questions, I have just one. 

What's your daily relationship like with Sam Mendes during filming?

Roger and Sam have a very collaborative relationship. We have been on this film since last August. It was the longest prep we've ever done but well worth it since it is a tricky film. It is always much more fun to be in a collaborative work situation where you feel you are contributing.

James is definitely part of the crew. We always work together. This is a very challenging project but that challenge and the people we are working with makes it as much fun as we have ever had.

I am sure you are and will always be in good hands with a partner like James. I mostly appreciate that she'll be on this site to give some advice and updates. Thank you James!

BTW, any behind the scenes shots you can offer? I'm sure there's a set photographer making BTS images

So there is no doubt, James is Roger’s better half and is definitely female.  James is on the left of photo!

Sorry! 'Behind the scenes' of the shooting of '1917' will be under wraps until it is released on Christmas day.
