Jimmy Brown - 4th June 2013

Gareth Phillips contrasts the charming tones of Marika's The Bath Is Black with scenes of lurid profanity from a cliched, sexed-up couple who Marika shares a house with. 

"The casting for this had to be spot on, when I saw Mark with his gold teeth and gun tattoos on his belly I knew he was the one" explains Gareth. 

"Laura was great also and really up for getting involved. It didn't take a lot to get Laura grinding up against Mark, she looked like she was having fun and Mark couldn't believe he was getting paid to receive a lap dance. It was a really fun shoot".
