BLOG – WORK/LIFE BLUR – COVID 19 BURNOUT – August 2021

There isn't too much to report for August. I was released from the commercial shooting in Denmark so that was a shame. I've had two, decent feature film auditions which I am waiting to hear back from and then a lot of self-tapes for smaller projects: commercials,...

BLOG – APPLE TV+ SCI FI SERIES FOUNDATION – JULY 2021

Throughout July, I've been back in Los Angeles and back on the audition treadmill. The auditions seem to come like buses, 3 or 4 all at once and with the advent of self-tapes, more and more are coming in at the weekend. I don't know why this is happening and I'm very...

BLOG – FAMILY, FRIENDS AND EURO 2020 – June 2021

June was spent in the UK shooting a new TV series, catching up with family and friends and watching the Euros! Having quarantined for the last part of May, I then had several days on set in June working with a delightful cast and crew on a show that, as is becoming...

BLOG – BACK WORKING IN THE UK – May 2021

I don't have too much to report for May other than I passed all my COVID-19 tests and made it back to the UK and through quarantine which was a relief in itself as it meant that I was able to work on the new, TV drama that I'd booked. Even being vaccinated didn't help...

BLOG – LUCKY TO BE WORKING – DECEMBER 2020/JANUARY 2021

2020 was certainly improved when I booked a recurring role in a new TV series shooting in Europe at the beginning of 2021 and, at the beginning of December, I was back working on the video game that I'd been working on at the end of 2019, so that was a boost too! For...

BLOG – RECURRING ROLE IN MAJOR TV SERIES – OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2020

It's been a strange couple of months with a reasonable amount of auditions and callbacks but then projects have been put on hold or casting directors, directors and producers have played it safe and used cast that they have already worked with so it's been very slow...

BLOG – ADVICE COLUMNS AND STOCKING FILLERS – AUGUST 2020

I continued to audition for various projects in August but most don't appear to be confirming casts as they are either shooting a long way ahead or finding themselves having to put everything back on hold. I also continued to promote my book, Surviving Hollywood – How...
