The Changeover: Classic Kiwi YA novel gets a creepy cinematic do-over
Some movie stars come to New Zealand for the adventure, others for the spectacular scenery. Not Timothy Spall. First thing he does when he's here for work is take advantage of our cheap underwear. Speaking for the first time about his time in Christchurch last Spring making an adaptation of Margaret Mahy's Carnegie Medal-winning 1984 book The Changeover, the 60-year-old admits that his top priority upon arriving here was heading to the place where "everyone gets a bargain". "Yes, It seems I come to New Zealand every 14 years," the avuncular Battersea-born Spall says , referring to previous visits to make an ad (which never aired) and The Last Samurai. "And I always go straight to The Warehouse and buy a load of pants."
