Brush off the Acting Dust

When you leave something sitting for a few weeks it starts to build up dust. The same can be said for you tools as an actor, well it is for me anyway.   I try and keep my tools working, so I don’t forget how to use them but lately I get so caught up with life. A…

Finding The Right Agent

Some people find it easy and some hard, I was the latter. When I graduated drama school, I like many other actors after a few years in the comfort of a school atmosphere assume agents will just want me and then my career would take off. It wasn’t like that at all. I had peaked…

The Cliché Game

The past week has been good to me. I’ve had 4 auditions, one tv pilot, one short film and two commercials. Now comes the cliché of “the waiting game” to see if I get any of the roles.

YouFame

I had always seen becoming an actor as a formula to a journey that is timeless, go to drama school, put in that sheer hard work and you will get noticed. But the more we head into the future with new and improved technology with things like really good cameras that are easily affordable now and places that your content will be seen like YouTube and Vimeo, the more I see the formula I thought would…
