Speaking to Radio Times, the TV and film star admitted that following his iconic comedies The Office and Extras, he struggled to bring After Life to life due to the complexities of the story, which follows a widower’s grief.
After soaring to fame with mockumentary The Office in 2001, which Ricky wrote and starred as hapless and fame-hungry David Brent, he went on to enjoy huge success with celebrity cameo-laden Extras in 2005.
However, Ricky admitted that he struggled most with After Life, as he said: ‘The ‘situation’ bit of it is vast. With The Office, it was a group of people in a place…
‘I’d worked in an office for 10 years, I know [that]… and almost the funny thing about The Office was that nothing happens, so that was quite easy…
‘And also Brent was such a strong central character, it was a man who was desperately wanting to be famous and discovered, so once you know that, it’s clear.
Having fun: He appeared to be in great spirits as he beamed a smile while on location
Co-star: Also spotted filming in Buckinghamshire was actress Diane Morgan, who plays Kath in the show, with the star sporting a smart white blazer and pencil skirt
Off he goes: Ricky arrived in a black T-shirt and hoodie before changing into his costume
‘Extras was hard, because the ambition was bigger. But again, it’s easy to explore the narcism and ego of actors and actresses… So I’d say After Life [is the hardest].’
And Ricky’s long-term partner Jane Fallon recently touched on having Ricky home more often amid the coronavirus.
The author, 60, said on Lorraine: ‘It’s been slightly harder with Ricky at home sometimes as he’s a bit noisy.
‘I’ve always been kind of cut off from the world [while writing]. I always knew we would get another cat as I don’t live not having an animal in the house.
‘Pickle [their new cat] is gorgeous and the happiest little thing. She’s massive, a real sweetheart. She’s four and comes from a horrible start in life. If I’m working, she’ll come and sleep across my laptop. She’s settled with us really well. We fostered her.’
Plot: After Life follow the story of grieving local newspaper journalist Tony – played by Ricky – as he begins to have his spirits lifted by his adoring support network following the death of his beloved wife Lisa (pictured together)
