Lynne Allbutt has been a landscape gardener, running her own business, for over 30 years. During that time she also carved a path that meandered through the media and celebrity world and which gave her the opportunity to interview numerous celebrities and VIPs – Very Interesting People.
Lynne side-stepped the usual interviews where the celebrities promote their films, books, tours or music, and was far more curious about their interest in gardening, nature and environmental issues.
“I am inquisitive about people’s attitudes toward the things that I am passionate about. Nature, animals, wellbeing and the outdoors are all comfortable areas for me but often not so much for the celebrities I spoke with. Most of them are not used to discussing those aspects of their life. It made for interesting and engaging conversations as they revealed memories, honest opinions and inspiration based on their life and experiences of the outside Green Room.“
