Inside John Cleese’s daughter Camilla’s lavish LA life after it’s revealed she’s writing Fawlty Towers reboot | The Sun

JOHN Cleese might be the face of the hotly-anticipated Fawlty Towers reboot – but his daughter Camilla is heavily involved too.

She might not be as well-known as the Monty Python legend, but Camilla has developed her own comedy and writing chops in Los Angeles where she lives.

The 39-year-old can often be seen performing material around the comedy clubs of southern California and occasionally shares her stand-up material on Instagram.

The career clips are interspersed with glimpses into family life including meals out and even a little tour of John's Caribbean pad.

Camilla had him in stitches during a tour of his home writing room, which his daughter commandeered for her bedroom, with swords and artwork adorning the walls.

When John drew the camera's attention to a painting of old ships, Camilla chirped: "Why don't you read the Odyssey now?"

John, 83, creased with laughter and described her as his funniest biped.

The seeds for the Fawlty Towers reboot appear to have been planted years ago.

Camilla alluded to a joint project at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

She wrote: "Coronavirus has been awful, and I know how lucky I am to be healthy, safe and able to take every precaution.

"Of course I wish it never happened, but if there is a silver lining it was being able to spend so much time working and hanging with my Dad— the most time I have had with him since I moved to the US as a child. Love you @johncleeseofficial aka Dad."

Fawlty Towers' return comes 44 years after the classic sitcom ended.

John will write it again and play Basil Fawlty, while daughter Camilla will also write and star.

Manic Basil Fawlty will be seen grappling with the modern world as he runs a boutique hotel in the Fawlty Towers reboot.

The latest shows, which will see Basil running a hotel with his long-lost daughter, are likely to spark a bidding war between streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon, as well as US and UK channels.

American production company Castle Rock Entertainment, run by director Rob Reiner and producer Matthew George, is backing the new project.

Filming is likely to begin next year.

John said: “When we first met, Matt offered an excellent first idea, and then Matt, my daughter Camilla and I had one of the best creative sessions I can remember.

“By dessert we had an overall concept so good that, a few days later, it won the approval of Rob and Michele Reiner. Camilla and I look forward enormously to expanding it into a series.”

George said: “I’ve watched the first two seasons so many times I have lost count. I dreamed of one day being involved in a continuation of the story. Now it’s come true.”

Fawlty Towers, which aired in 1975 with a second series in 1979, consistently tops all-time comedy lists thanks to famous scenes such as “Don’t mention the war” and Basil bashing his car with a branch.
