Lais and her mum came to visit and yesterday we went out for a long walk in the country. Lais is from Berlin and she played my sister in ‘The Physician’ which was filmed in Germany and Morocco. Unfortunately it didn’t come to the cinema here even though it was the top film in Germany. It is out on DVD on the 22nd May from Amazon. It was great to see her again
Me and Lais yesterday and as we looked last year!
On Sunday I went to The Gadget Show, it was really buzzing and I made a dash to the Games Station to have a go on all the new Games. Take a look at my video report, click the link below.
There were so many great things, robots, including a giant mechanical spider, strap on legs that made you 3ft taller like a bigger version of The Fawn from Narnia. I particularly liked the spy in the sky remote controlled camera and the underwater phone that you can use when diving.
I met up with Darren Jeffries, he was presenting at the show.
Darren and I have worked together before and it was great to see him again. We had time for a bit of a catch up but then he was off again to do more presenting in the hub with his friend and colleague Matt Littler. I have been deciding for ages whether to get a new Xbox One or PS4 and there was a debate in The Hub which was really good as Darren and Matt put forward their arguments for each console.

It is the first time I have been to the show and I would definitely go again.
I am going to The Gadget Show this weekend and I have already seen something I would love. You can use it as a gaming room, something I would be delighted to have. It is www.tetra-shed.co.uk It costs £15,000 so I don’t suppose I will get one soon!!!
I will see if I can find some cool gadgets to show you on my blog next week.

The ensemble cast also includes James Baxter as Stephen Croft, Matthew McGreevy as Jimmy, Max True, as Sam Grange and Adam Thomas Wright as Lewis Brown.
News just out about the new BBC Drama starring James Nesbitt. I had a very small role in it in between filming Altar and Harriet’s Army. James Nesbitt was really nice and he has a racehorse so I bet he will be watching the Grand National tomorrow. My mum is a putting a bet on for us. This is the only race I pick horses for. My mum was brought up in Aintree, near to the racecourse and she used to go every year.
Here is a piece from the internet about The Missing:-
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — STARZ, in partnership with the BBC, will produce and air the original limited drama series “The Missing.” Filming has begun on the eight-episode run in Brussels, Belgium. Written by Harry and Jack Williams (Honest) and directed by Tom Shankland (“Ripper Street”), “The Missing” will be produced by New Pictures and Company Pictures in association with Two Brothers Pictures and Playground. It will air on BBC One in the UK and STARZ in the U.S. in fall of 2014. all3media international has funded development of THE MISSING and retains all US rights not obtained by Starz.
“The Missing” follows Tony, played by James Nesbitt (The Hobbit trilogy, Jekyll), as a man devastated by the abduction of his young son, Oliver, during a family vacation in France. He becomes a man obsessed, unable to accept that his child may be dead and spends years searching for him. Tony’s exhaustive search fractures his marriage to Emily, played by Frances O’ Connor (“Mr. Selfridge,” A.I.: Artificial Intelligence) and threatens to destroy his life. Tcheky Karyo (Goldeneye, The Patriot) plays Julien, the French police detective who launched the initial search for the child. Even though he is retired in present day, he too cannot shake the small belief that the child may still be alive. Told using a fascinating narrative puzzle, “The Missing” explores the impact of a child’s abduction, the emotional cost of obsession, hope and finding when to let go. This gripping thriller is told simultaneously over multiple time frames and set in France and London
School broke up today for the holidays. Hurray! I am looking forward to some lie ins.
I got back from Newcastle on Tuesday . It was great fun and the part I played in this new CBBC Drama was quite a challenge. Here is a write up from the BBC website and below is a picture of me and some new mates in Newcastle.
Hattie’s Army is a gripping new three-part CBBC drama series, set during World War One and following a group of children in a small English town as they hold the Home Front and discover the true enemy within.
Fourteen-year-old Hattie is a girl who doesn’t fit in, and when she’s kicked out of the Girl Guides for getting involved in a fight, her father doesn’t know what to do with her. As war breaks out and the efforts of the Scouts and Guides are volunteered in support of the war, Harriet feels sidelined and forms her own ‘army’ of misfits, mounting their own patrols and searching for German spies.
Hattie’s Army highlights the astonishing and genuinely important role played by the children and young people who were left behind when their fathers and brothers went to fight in the trenches.
CBBC Productions – 3×30 minute
I am on a train going to Newcastle, at last. First we tried to go from our local station but the train just never turned up. We met a man who was also trying to get to London and we got a lift to another station from him. The London train was also delayed by 35 minutes but we are now on our way. Hurray. This is my last week on Harriet’s Army and I am looking forward to doing my most exciting scene, can’t tell you what it is as that would spoil the surprise!
When I get back I need to go and do some ADR work on ‘Altar’. The director has made some changes and added some more stuff. I like doing ADR. It is funny watching yourself and then speaking to fit it in in the right place. The film is off to the Toronto Film Festival .
Here is a cheeky peek at my current drama and a snap of my hair being chopped off. Ha Ha…
Today I started my first day filming a new exciting Drama called Harriet’s Army. It is set in 1914 and is a really good story.
Harriet’s Army is a new, gripping 3 part family drama, set during the First World war, following the adventures of a group of brave and determined children as they hold the front line at home, revealing the astonishing real roles played by children as their fathers and brothers went to fight in the trenches. A BBC Production.
Harriet’s Army will air on CBBC later this year.
My hair was chopped off and I have a basin cut, it feels really weird. I play one of the children in the village who have to cope with the First World war. The weather in Newcastle was fantastic and when I finished today….. I had this…..
