The inclusive and impossibly lively film director was a true original
Tony Scott was an extraordinary man.
They say he held the record for the fastest speeding ticket in Los Angeles – 170mph on a motorbike along Pacific Coast highway. They say he totalled two Porsches along Sunset Strip. I don't know if any of that's true and I don't care. He was a man people liked to tell stories about.
I knew Tony for three months, seven years ago, when I worked with him on Domino. Every second I spent with him was a privilege. I remember him standing in the Nevada desert at sunrise wearing his ever-present red baseball cap, mountain climbing shorts, holding a cigar in his hand. He smoked them all day long. I remember his excitement behind the monitor, jumping around like a hyperactive six-year-old, shouting encouragement all through a take. »
