Aussie actor Damon Herriman has been cast into the role of notorious cult leader Charles Manson, not once, but twice this year - in Netflix’s Mindhunter, and Quentin Tarantino’s film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Now, he’s teamed up with director Mirrah Foulkes to reimagine the Punch and Judy puppet show into a dramatic comedy that flips the narrative to tell it from Judy’s perspective.

The duo joined Danny Clayton in the BUILD Sydney studio to chat about how Damon creates such wonderful bad men on screen, and why Australian made films are so great.
