I have had a lot of auditions lately.  They always come at once  like buses!  I will write more about my Belgian adventure later. It will be March when I get back so.. Hello to March in a couple days and here is a mad March Hare.

THE DEFILED TOUR

Last April I went to Lancashire.  It was a really cold day and as we were taken by an all terrain vehicle to the location, it was a very dramatic quarry with jagged rocks and a frozen waterfall suspended down the rocks.  This is were I filmed my part for the new video by THE DEFILED ‘ As I Drown’   http://youtu.be/W2iMFR-Rl9g  by Videoink, Manchester

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS

On Monday, I went to a studio to do a photo shoot for National Geographic Kids

National Geographic

 

the edition will be a special one for Mother’s day  (March 30th 2014) and I had to make a mother’s day card.  Photos were taken of me making the card and then showing the end result.  It was good fun and me and Scarlet had a good time.

SOME NEWS

It has been nearly a week since I came back from Yorkshire.  I was there for a month and I had a great time.  It rained a lot and quite a lot of the filming was outdoors.  It was quite cold sometimes but we had hot water bottles and blankets and there was always plenty of food.  I had mainly late starts because a lot of the filming was done when it was nearly dark.  We also filmed in a big creepy old house which was colder inside than the weather outside.   I had fun with other members of the cast and crew and the 4 weeks went by really quickly.   The Director, Nick Willing (Neverland) was really good fun to be around, he was always joking and winding me up.

Here is Antonia, we spent a lot of time on the internet looking at funny things and it was like having a  big sister. Mathew was great fun to be with as well.  Olivia was nice and brought goodies to the make up room.

As soon as I got back I had a couple of auditions to do and I am going on some sort of photo shoot on Monday, more later.

I am also looking forward to going to Belgium soon to film a small part in a new t.v. drama.  More of that later too.

RUBY MODINE

Here is a copy of page from theyoung1s.co.uk I had a great time meeting Matthew Modine on the set of ALTAR, the new film from Nick Willing and his daughter Ruby is so talented, I am sure we will be hearing more about her this side of the pond soon.

The Young1s at EN5Radio
“One of our regular presenters, Adam Thomas Wright, had the opportunity to meet Hollywood actor,  Matthew Modine.  They were working together on the new Nick Willing film ‘ALTAR’ and got on very well spending a lot of time chatting about music, games etc:  Mathew also showed Adam some videos of his daughter Ruby, who is a singer/songwriter and we are pleased to share this with our followers as she is relatively unknown in the UK and is very talented. So you heard it first on theyoung1s.co.uk  We will playing Ruby’s music on theyoung1s radio show soon”.

As Tears Go By (2012)
“As Tears Go By” was written by The Rolling Stones. Ruby worked with producer Andrew Hollander to create a darker, more emotional rendition of the 1964 classic.
