After LA Confidential, he was offered another film, "but I knocked that back as it didn't feel the right thing to do...And Claudia Karvan also plays both characters, because an extraordinary thing happens one night while they're asleep: they switch bodies.Tash had been wishing Brett could be in her shoes, see things her way. But in the process, she is landed with his body..his job as a host on a tv music show, and his everything.And everyone was anxious to be fresher, truer and funnier.
Claudia says she played Brett "more blokey than Guy," and she praises Guy's work in Tash's character: "he wasn't a parody of a woman, he WAS a woman." They had to carefully co-ordinate the gestures of each, and Guy avoided camp gestures.After a shaky, nervous two weeks in rehearsals, Guy and Claudia welded as actors.
