HELEN DALLIMORE - Sunday Valentine

In Mr ACCIDENT Helen Dallimore plays Sunday Valentine. In her mid-twenties, Sunday is a vivacious but vulnerable refugee from a Bucket Flats egg farm. An ingenuous misfit, the dipsy uncertainty of her character is reflected in her dress sense, a kooky kaleidoscope of disparate fashions. All her life Sunday has been convinced by those around her that she is stupid and has protected herself by playing the clown.

Comments Helen: "When I first read the script I couldn’t stop laughing. I’ve never had that experience before where I’ve thought ‘I have to play this character’. Yahoo doesn’t know it but that role was written for me!" She continues: "I don’t know anyone else other than Yahoo who makes this kind of comedy. It’s very physical and classic yet its an inventive style that appeals to everyone. You couldn’t see this film and not laugh your head off!"

Helen says that her character Sunday "is a cross between a girl with old-fashioned values and a modern woman who is coming into her own. She’s very caring but she comes to learn that you can’t help everyone! Sunday and Roger are in fact fairly simple individuals who are able to help each other achieve a little more by pooling their somewhat complicated resources!"
