Spread your crap out ladies

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Yep, spread it out and don on your diva garments like the Hollywood wannabees you are. It’s one of my pet peeves and it happened again in a casting last week. I was waiting quietly for my turn to be called in, and had put my handbag underneath the seat and filled out the clipboard...

I miss listening to the music on the headphones

Posted by on / 0 Comments

When I was a teenager (showing my delicate age here) I used to think it was cool to hang in HMV and independent music stores listening to cool tunes on those huge headphones they offered – the ones that are pretty much like voiceover headphones. I felt like the Queen of the castle every time...

A note to my younger self

Posted by on / 1 Comments

When I started out in drama school (more than 15 years ago now) it all seemed a lot simpler. Work hard in class, do your hours of homework, be disciplined and focused, and follow your predecessors once you out. That is, find a decent agent, get auditions, book jobs. What I wasn’t prepared for is the...

How to…for acting websites in The Stage this week

Posted by on / 0 Comments

How is your acting website on a scale of 1-10? Would you say people rave about it? Do they come back and look at it again and again? Is your bounce rate higher than a basketball in a game with Michael Jordan?… Yes you know I love to talk about branding and stereotypes and emails to Casting...

I am so grateful for the day I met Angela! I believe it literally meant the difference between the success and failure of my enterprise. I knew what I wanted to achieve but I didn't quite know how to get there and that's where Ang came in. She has tonnes of really practical tips about social media, marketing, branding and much more. She showed me handy time-savers and linked me up with relevant contacts she knew for possible collaborations. She is encouraging and passionate and I always left feeling uplifted and energised for action, with a clear idea of what I needed to do next, to take my company to the next level. I know it won't always be easy but since working with Angela, everything just seems to be running so much more smoothly and effortlessly. I think that's partly due to all the practical knowledge and extra support I now have and partly due to Angela's emphasis on my own passions. She tunes in to what I enjoy most and ensures I keep working on those things and don't get diverted onto things that would drain my motivation and energy. She helps me to stay focused, set goals and then achieve them in the most efficient way possible.
