Son-in-law of Jeffry Wickham and Clair Stewart.
Brother-in-law of Rupert Wickham, Caspar Wickham and Jane Dee.
Was going to direct the 1986 remake of The Fly (1958), but withdrew after the death of his daughter. He has never watched the film partly because of the memory of his daughter's death and partly because he doesn't want his vision for the film to be changed.
Has two daughters, Alexandra and Kitty, with Saskia Wickham.
