Okay so….queue long emotional dramatic music…. I now have a toddler going on tween and a school kid (how did that happen!!!!) so for me, the school holidays are about finding the best return on distance to travel vs costs. If you’re hoping to spend October doing some fun activities without breaking the bank, here...

Judgy parents…stay away from me

Posted by on / 0 Comments

The Monster mums And just like that, I’m going on a rant! NOTE: This blog post has literally nothing to do with acting. I don’t mind how you want to raise your child, but I really don’t love it when it’s shoved in my face. If you only feed your baby organic, vegan, nutritious snacks...

I was very daunted by the prospect of searching for a new agent during such difficult times within the industry and terrified of getting all the NO’s. Working with Angela really helped me to get things in perspective and breakdown what I needed to do to get myself out there. Understanding my type and how to promote my best attributes was key and aiming for the right agents. Guiding me through the process, supporting me every step on this journey really gave me the confidence I needed and an invaluable sounding board of reassurance. After sending out 20 emails I then sent a further 20. Hard work…yes, but I ended up with 4 interviews and a straight-up offer. Talking through the pros and cons of each with Angela, I felt secure in my choice and very excited about the new relationship with my new representation. Angela even helped me with saying goodbye to my old agent and it couldn’t have been a sweeter parting of well wishes. I would and have highly recommended Angela to anyone considering new representation or other areas of your career that need some polish!

Stuck indoors for an indefinite period of time (a look at this time)

Posted by on / 0 Comments

This lockdown has been life-changing. For so many of us, we never expected we would ever see this in our lifetimes. For a select few, they’ve been saying this is coming for a very long time (just catch a few TED talks and they’ll tell you – references at the bottom). Sadly it is happening....

It’s a pandemic – how do parents stay tapped into acting? (and actors generally)

Posted by on / 0 Comments

I’ve been finding this lockdown is all sorts of crazy for acting parents. There’s a plethora of free content available, including casting director one-to-ones and free talks, and yet it’s nearly impossible to tap into any of them! Why? Because you have one or more squealing children in tow following your every move around your...

Epic failings of the mummy actor variety

Posted by on / 0 Comments

I think it’s always important as an actor, and more importantly as a mentor, to be completely transparent. And today I want to chat about epic fails. Epic fails of the life and baby and acting variety. I have been struggling to keep up. I always considered myself a doer, rather than a gonna, but...

Our plastic and paper free family (attempts)

I said to a mate the other day that I’ve become “that girl”; the one I would meet when in my twenties and scoff at because she insisted she was a healthy hippy who didn’t eat much meat, rarely wore deodorant (I do draw the line at that one), took her healthy homemade lunch out...

Ways to Stay on the Right Side of a Casting Director

Posted by on / 0 Comments

Over the years I’ve genuinely heard and been asked the funniest things from actors about Casting Directors… Like ‘Is it okay to be in touch with a Casting Director to offer to take them out, after only booking one job?’, or ‘Could I call a Casting Director and ask them to vouch for me when...
