standing with her toes at the edge of the stage, June Hyde turns to ask the lighting operator in Finnish if we could have more illumination. A brief pause, before gentle light fades the rows of seats into focus, and we commence her photo shoot. Here, at the focal point of Helsinki City Theatre, she is at home. Hyde effortlessly switches back to English, with her perfect British accent giving little away of the fact she has lived the overwhelming majority of her life in Finland.
