I feel like I have been on fast spin in a tumble dryer as I write this, the last few weeks have been turned inside out to say the least!
I am actually writing this blog on the very scenic Tankerton Slopes in Kent whilst my little man sleeps in the back. It was his first birthday last week and it brought back some very mixed feelings as that was the day i was put on life support and didn't have a clue I had actually given birth to my precious son. I am still absolutely loving being a Mummy, it's such hard work and now Hugo is walking my days are spent entertaining and making sure the inevitable bumps aren't too bad.
In a bitter twist of fate somebody extremely close to me (who I have known since i was 15) was taken very ill and put on Intensive Care a year to the day that I was admitted. Visiting them in hospital this last weekend was pretty harrowing and brought back a few unpleasant memories. I don't really want to talk too much about it just yet as I don't feel it is my place but they are making small improvements and should be off intensive care very soon.
On a different note I was looking on the Thomson Holidays website the other day (I shot the video and stills campaign for them last year) and came across this familiar old face. Check out the website links below:
I am also delighted to announce that i shall be joining the cast of The Rite to Rosemary its a cracking script with some extremely talented people on board and I would love it if you could take a look at the website and show your support for this film.
Short film is such an important avenue in film production, it is the training ground for all the next generation of Directors, Producers and Actors...it also gives old hands a chance to try new things without the pressure of studios and budgets...just ask Robert Rodriguez! Without profile and public interest this much loved dynamic medium will fade away so I can't beg you enough to give these guys your Facebook likes, your Retweets and your time, it costs you nothing and you never know, you might just launch the next Darren Aronofsky or Steven Spielberg!
I've always prided myself on being good to work with, avoiding the pitfalls of the inevitable Drama Queen melt down that can affect us actresses from time to time...it wasn't always the case... ;)
