Chatting about her mum, and how they are currently working on three screenplays together, Josephine explained: "I've been writing with my mother. We're working on three projects at the same time. I love to write and I'd like to produce, I'm really interested in it, and my mum is amazing, she has so many brilliant ideas.

"She's a writer, she's a director, she's been an actress, singer, dancer. Her CV... I'm like, 'Mum, this is a lie. You haven't done all of this. It's impossible!' She's extremely talented.

"Writing with another person can be very difficult, you have to be really connected. We're having so much fun. We wrote a short movie, we are working on the series, and we have a big blockbuster movie! Like Pirates of the Caribbean kind of vibe. No limits! I'm like, 'Mum, this is gonna cost a lot of money,' and she's like, 'Just write it and we'll see! Write the movie, and we'll find the money later!'

Josephine joked that she'd love to appear in their projects too, adding: "Maybe not all of them but those three, yes. But we have a lot of ideas. I might not be in it because I like to discover new talents. That's one of the things I like to do, so we'll see. We're just enjoying our time writing together. I'm really motivated and it's something I really love to do."
