The start of a New Year is always marked with dreams and aspirations. As an actress you are always thinking of your next challenge, your next role, or next pursuit and all of this done with a little trepidation and excitement as you never know what your next job maybe .
I was having a discussion with my sister about New Year's resolutions and she doesn't make any as she doesn't believe in them, whereas I love to set myself new goals and challenges. Do I always fulfil them? Of course I don't, but I try ;)
I had a wonderful festive period with all of my family and it is such a special time of year to all be together, my son is 19 months now and a real character, so much fun to be around! As a Mum I find myself saying words and sentences together that I never imagined I would ever say...for example "Don't put your sniffy (soothy blanket) in the bucket!" ;)
This month he is starting nursery for two half days a week, this will be another new adventure for all of us. He only usually stays with my husband or my parents when I work but I think he is absolutely ready for it and will soon love his new found freedom and friends. I have booked all of his days out until he is totally comfortable so I can be there for him! :) #motherhood
I have already shot a great little film this year, it's a horror film called The Hollow, I play a single Mum to a 13 year old son and its a great little script. I had good fun filming it and below are a few stills from the day.
I also had an audition this week for the part of a ballet instructor in a new Bollywood Feature Film. They contacted me directly and although I haven't done any ballet for a while I had a really good audition. It was quite intimidating as I am used to auditioning for just the Director/ Producer, they had a large team of ten people and all the other actors were waiting at the other end of the large room... Just before I said my lines the room fell to a deadly silence with everyone listening......gulp!
Afterwards I met my hubby for an Italian dinner and a bottle of wine in Paddington so it was a nice end to the day.
Hope you're all well and looking forward to 2015!
