Posted by on / 0 Comments

It’s pretty common to get on set and meet divas acting up. They don’t even mean to be but they are. The rest of the crew are frantically working on set to get this light sorted, to get that prop just right, to discuss this next shot…. And then in waltzes an (diva) actor. #Sigh....

There’s a moment I remember years ago in Australia. I was back there for nine months because I needed to finalise my EU passport and wasn’t able to stay in the UK any longer to do it. To say I was disappointed to leave London is an understatement. I didn’t want to be back in...

An upside down world (baby blues)

Posted by on / 0 Comments

A baby arrives and just like that, my life is turned upside down. I’m awake when I should be asleep, sleeping when I would normally be happily awake. I fall asleep almost instantly if I’m horizontal, and I was already a good sleeper. Otto is my world now (well at least full time for the...
