Adam Penny, the MD for UK-based Connected Pictures (The Urban Chef on BBC and the upcoming one-off doc for Sky 1 HD, The World’s Youngest Daredevils), shares with realscreen three things people may not know about him.

1. I originally trained as an opera singer but then joined the Royal Shakespeare Company to play an ass-kicking centaur in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

2. When I was a boy I was obsessed with The Godfather. When I finally grew up, the only thing that made sense was to go into business with my father.

3. I always try and integrate the thinking I have as a Buddhist with how we run our company. But I stop short at asking the team to sit in the lotus position and ‘om’ in our creative meetings.
