Greg Wise

Clare & Greg Wise were born and raised in the north of England. She read books, he fell out of trees. She excelled at school, he hid when the end-of-term Report came. She got a Double First in History at university. He did two Degrees – one where you spend your time drawing, the other where you pretend to be someone else. Oddly, as adults, they both found themselves in the film business: she at the UK Film Council and then Vice President of Universal Pictures, he pretending to be someone else. They lived in the same street until her death in 2016.
