The 7 P’s to Auditioning

Punctuality : Never be late! I think that’s a given. Turning up late to a casting doesn’t give a good impression. But you also don’t want to be too early. I always get to the location of the venue really early, just incase there’s any public transport issues. I suss out where the venue is and…

Peter Pan in Scarlet at the Oxford Playhouse

If you read my last blog post My New Job you’ll know that I… well, got a new job! Part of my new job role as Assistant Agent at Nancy Hudson Associates, I need to go to showcases to look for new talent and see theatre shows that our clients are currently in. Last Thursday…

My New Job!

N.B. This is going to be a quick little post! I absolutely love acting and as I have mentioned before, us actors need money jobs, but I am kind of at the point in my life that I need more than just a money job. I want a career. A job that has the potential…

I had a casting last Friday for a PlayStation 4 commercial and in the morning as I was applying my make up, I thought it might be a nice blog post to share with you what I use when preparing for a casting**. What with all TV, Film & Commercial castings being filmed and in HD too,…

I love stationary… yes I know I’ve already done a post on my addiction to all things paper and pens. If you haven’t read that post check it out here: Stationary Lover but I warn you, I sound like a crazed addict. But I seriously love stationary. I love planners, I love stickers, I love notebooks…

You might recognise Karla from Misfits, Prisoners Wives, Under the Dome or even one of my favourites You, Me and the Apocalypse. I mean the list is endless, as is her talents.

Top 5 TV Programmes of August

As an actor it can be very hard to watch a TV programme or see a film and even take a trip to the theatre. Not because you want to rip the actor from the stage and do the part… well sometimes it is! But because you are viewing it with a critics mind. I find…

Top 5 Modern Plays to Read

I love reading plays. Often when I read a book I try and pick out all the dialogue and turn it into a play rather than read all the descriptive parts of the story. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading books and I am currently reading All The Bright places by Jennifer Niven, but I…

And I’m back in the game!

Where have you been? I hear you ask. Yes, I know it’s been 3 months. Yes, I know I was going to blog as much as possible, and in my defence I was doing a good job for a while. But to be honest I felt a bit of a fraud. I was calling myself…

What’s the answer to perfect skin?

What is the answer to perfect skin? As an actor, in front of the camera in particular, you want that flawless look. What with HD channels now it’s enough to make anyone concerned about their appearance. What with my upcoming wedding  I have been growingly concerned about my skin. First sight of a breakout and I’d…

I love reading inspirational quotes from fellow actors. It reminds me to keep pursuing my dream. Most recently I saw an Instagram post from Chris Pratt that really touched me (I’ve popped it below). So, I thought I’d create a post with all the inspiring quotes I’ve seen recently. You never know, they may give you that…

For the love of books… Theatre books!

I love a good bookshop. Especially one that consists of plays and theatre books. I have an extremely large collection of Shakespeare plays, moderns and classics that fill the shelves of my office. I thought I’d just do a short post on some of the theatre bookshops I love to visit in London. Samuel French…
