Ruth Jones – Writer, Actor and Associate Producer. Stella and Gavin and Stacey “Claire Finlay is an outstandingly talented costume designer. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her creativity and ingenuity are boundless, her energy is infectious and her organizational ability is second to none. She gets right inside a script’s characters and her attention to detail is incredible. More than anything, Claire is such a joy to work with – she is passionate and enthusiastic, consumately professional and super efficient. On a practical level she never goes over budget; on a personal level she is warm, loyal, reassuring and the best fun ever to be around.”
