I’ve been doing the odd ‘Supporting Artist’ role recently. Once upon a time we were called Extras, now SAs. Posh.
You couldn’t get much different to wildlife conservation, could you?
House of Fools. British comedy starring Bob Mortimer, Vic Reeves and a few other funny and familiar faces. Look out for me reading a menu in the Bistro.
We were six SAs and I learnt of all the charities that these colleagues support. The Dogs Trust was a favourite. And there was Georgia, a beautiful young professional dancer, obsessed with lions, who has already decided what she plans to do when she’s too old to dance. She will retrain to work with wildlife (lions). She shared with the team, her knowledge on dolphin slaughter and captivity issues.
Hunter’s Prayer. Hollywood movie. Look out for me in a posh frock. I can say no more!
Here we were 170 ish SAs. I teamed up with two gentlemen, and to pass the time (there is very much time spent hanging around shivering with cold, whilst on set) we each exchanged our most memorable wildlife experiences, and favourite wildlife documentary footage. Lions won!
Today I was a lifestyle model for the new Manchester United corporate hospitality brochure. We were nine models. Six men. Three women. Three of the six men were vegetarian. Two of them vegan. Whoa! And to top that, one of them sat and told me all about raptor persecution in the UK. Erm. Brilliant. No lions.
People come in all sorts of types. If I didn’t know it before, I’ve certainly learnt not to treat a book by its cover.
