Firstly I read Andrew Motion’s biography of Keats and was incredibly moved by it and loved the story and was…but when he met Fanny Brawne, who lived next-door to him, I just had no idea of this incredible love affair that they had - they were so young, it was a kind of Romeo and Juliet story except it was real and erm I found myself just weeping at the end of it but also being introduced to his poetry in a way that I realised it was about his life and what he was going through. But at that point I couldn’t really imagine what sort of film you could make because I’m not really a fan of the biopic, you know, I felt like I needed an angle on it?
