Play • 42 min
Welcome to the second series of The Making of... from The Female Lead

Our guest this week is the actor, writer and disability campaigner Samantha Renke!

Samantha came to fame in the groundbreaking Maltesers ad which was one of the first representations on TV of a wheelchair user as being funny and sexy. This moment was a turning point for Samantha's career but also a really painful time due to online trolling which we talked about in our conversation.

We also covered ableism, finding independence, dating and why she hates being called an inspiration. Samantha was so funny and so honest, it was one of the most enlightening conversations and we hope you think so too.

The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby. The production is brought to you by The Female Lead. And the whole series is very kindly sponsored by Missoma
