Lin-Manuel Miranda reveals his favourite things about the UK, and they’re amazing
Lin-Manuel Miranda may have been busy filming during his time in Britain, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t soaked up some of the local culture too.
The actor and Broadway star recently wrapped on filming for Mary Poppins Returned, which was being shot in London.
Does this mean you’re leaving 🇬🇧 now?

That tweet was followed by something of an impromptu Twitter Q&A about Britain, which took place on Miranda’s journey home from the studio.
This is my last long ride home from Shepperton Studios.

(For any U.S. readers, a Freddo is probably our most beloved of national chocolate bars.)
Next, it was on to the thing he’ll miss the most about London (which also turned out to be chocolate-themed).

It transpired that Miranda has picked up some of our local British customs.
I love how much you have embraced Britain. Has any of our Britishness rubbed off on you? Are you drinking tea and apologising a lot?

And finally, it ended on this uplifting note.
