Are you an actor with money mindset worries?

Posted by on / 0 Comments

This is something really different…let’s talk moolah. This is really different to my usual chat, but still very much about mindset. But this time it’s about money and our mindset around that. I often think that when people think of creatives, especially actors or musicians, they automatically think of desolate hobos walking the streets, busking...

Angela was probably one of the very first people I spoke to when I moved to London from Brisbane in 2016. I was a little overwhelmed by such a big city and a much larger industry than I was used to. Angela guided me through getting set up in London from Spotlight applications to new headshots to working out which agents I wanted to email. She made working in London seem not only possible but completely achievable. I've now worked in a number of short films, and theatrical productions as well as recently signing with Williams Bulldog Management. Angela gave the confidence to go out and throw myself into the London scene, I'm so glad she did and I totally still call her up for slices of B.A.B.E .wisdom.

How to make it through an audition without your baby screaming

Posted by on / 0 Comments

A screaming baby or toddler is never great for a casting, either for your own well being, or for the other auditionees. But let’s face it, we can’t pay for a babysitter for every audition (when they usually command a minimum of at least three hours), and society just isn’t fully set up for freelancing mothers – right...

Why every mum (who drinks) should have a teepee

Posted by on / 0 Comments

I won’t lie. I am not the mother who is going to win any prizes for not drinking, for being the perfect doting angelic parent who makes sure every single thing that goes into their baby’s mouth is organic, or who hasn’t had a little lie in…in their baby’s teepee. Yeah that’s right. I build him a...

Have you heard about Hygge?

Posted by on / 1 Comments

Anyone heard about the concept of Hygge? It’s been sweeping the photo scene and Insta scene for a bit, but right now it seems to bubble away largely away from the mainstream fads (which I am pleased about). But it’s a brilliant concept, feeling, idea… Hygge Hygge is associated with acknowledging an emotion or moment of...

Every month I work with actors all over the planet – true story! I’ve got clients in Europe, LA, Australia, London, up north, and have even worked with peeps as far away as Malaysia (well okay that’s nearly as far away from London as Australia but not quite). I get pretty excited every single time...

Final holiday time update for 2017

Posted by on / 0 Comments

I don’t want to alarm anyone but we only have a few more sleeps until Christmas….are you ready? Presents bought? Agent and Casting Director thank you’s sent? I am sitting in a cafe right now and Under the Boardwalk is playing. It’s reminding me of misspent youth, of days in the sun riding my bike through pineapple fields,...

Let’s talk about voiceovers baby, let’s talk about you and me

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Last month I was delighted to share my insights on Voiceovers in my first ever Backstage article. When Backstage invited me to become a guest expert I was absolutely thrilled. I’ll be honest… I have hoped to be a writer on Backstage since I first started writing B.A.B.E. (and that was a long time ago...

Showreel do’s and don’ts

Posted by on / 0 Comments

There’s a lot to be said for an excellent reel. Just like an excellent headshot, an excellent showreel can get you into a room as a relative unknown. It can also stop you ever being seen if it’s absolute sh@t. So it pays to get it right. To get advice on what to put in your...
