Jack is one half of the original Celluloid Heroes Radio team. A freelance journalist when not holding the fort at CHR, he graduated from the University of Leeds with a Music degree in 2008. His most significant achievement though was taking the titular role of Joseph in the Crosfields School production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat in 1996, an event which is still talked about in Reading to this day.

Ed founded Celluloid Heroes Radio with Jack back in 2010 after completing a Broadcast Media MA. His radio presenting career blasted off whilst working at Newcastle University Student Radio, where his cult lunchtime show broke all records, sometimes getting up to 16 listeners at a time, but his career high came a few years later, when he was awarded the privilege of offering none other than British tennis flop, Tim Henman some Robinson’s fruit squash. Tim politely declined the offer. Ed now resides in the posh part of London with his enviable collection of wooly jumpers.

Multi-talented Charlotte, (or Charlie to her friends) is a freelance writer who exercises her acid tongue on her blog, Young Free and Cynical. As well as being a precocious talent at the keyboard, Charlie has a background in dance and acting; appearing in some of the less critically acclaimed Harry Potter films. When she’s not being obnoxiously cranky, she can be also found at The Huffington Post and in embarrassing, fan-made YouTube videos. Charlie is well loved on the Twittersphere, where she can be found most days, swearing, being unhealthily cynical and talking about her lady parts.

Annoyingly talented illustrator and cinephile Morgan is an Illustration graduate of Edinburgh Collage of Art where he spent the most part of his adult life (yet still can’t pull off a decent Scottish accent). Morgan is currently working as the in-house illustrator for We Are Human, and you can see some fine examples of his work over at MorganRitchie.com. He is most famous in film circles for his unquenchable hatred of Wes Anderson.

Heather is a freelance travel writer who has an intensely irritating habit of starting every sentence with ‘when I was in…’ She also writes fashion, food and film reviews. She is a master of inappropriate conversations and smug photo posting (usually involving a beach) and her worst celebrity story involves ‘starring’ in a film with Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee.
Favourite Film: Leon (The Professional)
Favourite Director: Baz Luhrmann
