After tending bar, laying bricks and digging sewer lines, Guy set his sights on the film industry.
Having started as a runner in 1993, he was soon directing music videos and commercials.
"I picked up on it and before I knew it I was interested in it." His first foray into dialogue was with a short film entitled Sting's wife, Trudie Styler, invested in the British gangster movie, which was bolstered by a cameo from her husband.
And Trudie acted as Guy's fairy godmother in other ways too, introducing him to Madonna over lunch at her Elizabethan mansion Lake House, in Wiltshire.
Guy says the singer's head "sort of spun round" when the two met, adding the encounter "did knock my socks off".
