From Central London
How did you get into your lineof work?
I started at acting school in NY and was only supposed to be doing a three-month course before starting real life, but fell in love with it and couldn’t give up.
What do you do day-to-day?
Rehearse and audition for films or theatre, and get bits together for shows I’m producing. There’s also meetings with directors and casting directors, plus attending acting classes. I also make regular food deliveries to the homeless; I cook batches of food, then take it around the streets.
What’s the best part of your job?
That sometimes I get to film in manageable conditions. Plus, delivering food to the homeless is a really rewarding experience.
What’s the most challenging?
Filming in rain/snow/sleet/hail/all of the above – in a T-shirt.
