minkie is one of 9 siblings and wanted to be an astronaut but space is pretty full on so she studied directing at the royal college in london and somehow became a war photographer who also made documentaries but then realised shooting drama was less dangerous and more fun especially when you’re nominated for a bafta and although she is literally the most accident prone person in the world she kept landing massive gigs and got nominated at the dga awards so she moved to la to shoot better call saul and the deuce so netflix approached her to direct on three body problem which is their biggest sci-fi show ever and although we would never ever go on a motorbike with her because of her track record we would definitely want to be on set with her because she’s a brilliant director and a definite knucklehead
