Dean photographed actor Himesh Patel for the cover feature of Sunday's Observer Magazine (10.05.20). In the article Himesh explains how he felt leaving the TV programme 'Eastenders' and how he found his way of moving into film acting. Unlike so many before him Himesh has managed to cross the divide and now with several feature credits under his belt is continuing to play great roles. 

Dean shot with Himesh for the Danny Boyle / Richard Curtis Beatles inspired fantasy called 'Yesterday' a while back along with key members of the cast including Lily James. 

The session for the magazine happened before the lockdown situations unfolded, originally scheduled to be shot outside the grey forbidding skies meant the shoot ended up taking place inside the studio instead, Dean mentioned this in the contributors notes on page 3 of the magazine.
