Following the screening of the first episode, Guy took part in a Q&A and remarked: "This kind of filmmaking is based on rhythm and once you've established a rhythm you are subservient to it… it all conspired together in the cast's performance." 

The Gentlemen marks the first time Guy has worked with legendary actor Ray Winstone. Of their first time collaborating, Guy remarked: "Ray is rather wonderful. I wanted to work with Ray for a long time. It was a wonderful experience."

Ray, 65, added: "I'm still blown away by watching… the joy for me was it was so different working with Guy because you get things thrown at you and I think as long as you're on your game… you can take anything on board. And I haven't worked with a director like that before."
