Music Video for Lion’s new single Wolf.

4 Aug , 2019  

Working on music video shoots is one of the best experiences for a working actor. Bringing an artists music to life in what is essentially a short film and seeing the final edit is always a thrill. Wolf is the new single from upcoming British artist ‘Lion’ and the story concept was told in flashbacks to the singers character’s childhood in a disruptive, domestically abusive home.  Shot over two days in Surrey and Bournemouth, England the resulting video (Universal Music Group) is a beautifully told story of triumph over adversity.

Projects in the Pipeline

29 Jun , 2019  

Being busy as an actor is NEVER a bad thing and these past few months have been super busy, with two exciting projects in production and some great smaller projects completed.

One of my favorite’s has been playing Helen Maxwell in the movie version of the ‘Clock Tower’ survival horror computer game, written and directed by Director Ruth (Ladarius Winns) working on a horror film has been oxymoronically SO MUCH FUN, principal photography has started but for now here is a sneak peak at the trailer.

Next up I’ve been back working with the awesome Jerome Curtis (Lights on Films) on a new digital series 108th, playing the Chief of Police – totally up my alley. Here is a snippet.

New Acting Reel and Headshots!

12 Feb , 2019  

An actors life is never dull, as actors we never stop: new headshots, new reels, new clips, new workshops, new classes the list goes on and the bank balance goes down – thank god then that Confucius got it spot on when he famously said ‘Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life’

For the love of acting, here are my latest Headshots courtesy of Headshots Anyone and my latest reel courtesy of Shoestring Films

The Business of Acting….

7 Oct , 2018  

The job of an actor and by job, I mean the nuts and bolts; be on time, rehearse, learn your lines, study your script, understand what’s’ going on in the scene.

Now the real job of an actor; not to act. To ask yourself the same question every day – am I believable as a human being. Sounds crazy right? But as a Meisner student my first ever acting coach told the class from day 1 – never say the word character in my class – there is no such thing. There is only ever you as a person working through an imaginary set of circumstances but no matter how far fetched those circumstances may be, the result is always the same – find the truth in every moment, react as you would react, feel as you would feel and do all of that in the guise of someone else.

Think of any great actor – Denzel Washington, Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman (some of my favorites) and recall how not once do you ever think ‘oh thats Denzel he’s a pilot today’ you believe that they are that person they draw you in to their story, now think of a time where you watched an actor trying desperately to act – it feels different right? You find yourself calling bullshit, I call bullshit on myself all the time – I act the role, I add up all the numbers 2 plus 2 equals 4 and yet it doesn’t make sense because you’re pretending to feel, pretending to react – when the only way is really to feel, really react. Listening is the only thing we ever really need as actors but every day nerves, fear, projection, planning, stop us from really listening, from being in the moment and from finding our truth.

Acting is a job like any other, its hard and often not glamorous, and sure getting to live your life on any given day as an astronaut, a police officer, a hit-woman, mafia boss, drug dealer mother of two, FBI agent, farmer – whatever it may be, the research and the understanding of the role may differ but the delivery will always be the same – you are you a living breathing human being, deeply layered – you as a person are never just one thing and neither can be any ‘character’ you ever play be either

In conclusion for all the countless times I’ve heard actors ask the question in class, am I a good actor? I’ve always thought the more important question is, how well can I not act?

Monologues!

15 May , 2018  

So monologues always terrified me as an actor until, that is I took a class with the wonderful Paul Fouquet of Alyssa Meyers Casting, four weeks later and I love monologues – who knew eh, this one is still my favorite – from Mike Bartletts play ‘Bull’ and the cutting and fearless character Isobel – after I presented it for the first time to class my feedback was simply ‘well you nailed that’ …..high praise indeed from Mr Fouquet
