    My Biggest ambition is to be in a comic book film eg Spider-Man or a Batman film playing a bad guy - how about everyone else?

    Well Thomas, mine is to be involved with any horror feature. Any buget either, it doesnt have to be a blockbuster. Every horror flick has its fans in the scene. I'm well into gore and had some roles in short thrillers with gore and a tv job. but nothing that quote quenched my sordid thirst.

    but i have a long way to go yet, I still haven't had my "big break".

    :S

    well bless you Nathan, I am blushing!

    I must get a new demo done, that one is very old and I hope/think I have much more to offer nowadays. It's always down to money isn't it?

    'Jacob' in 'Joseph'! Or 'Chief Bromden' again in 'Cuckoo's Nest'.

    I have been offered a great role in 'Dead Girls of London' which is a Horror movie which will be filming from July onwards (just to give the respondent above a boost, this sort of film is being made feature length in London and Prague!)

    I suppose any role that gives me a few lines of important dialogue, the chance to be in at the denouement and preferably the last memorable line!

    AGE is the key, though.

    Aspire to the role you want and that will be the role you will achieve.

    Go for it! Whatever you want to achieve you can. Just have the Belief that you can and go into the audition with, as a casting director told me, the attitude of a 'polite F*** you!'.

    Hi, I've always wanted to play Moley in The Wind in the Willows! I've even got the specs! ;-) Oh, and Isabella in Measure for Measure & I'd luv to be in a Noel Coward too....There are so many roles I'd luv to play, the list is endless. I really enjoyed playing Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream last summer & Helena in Look Back in Anger recently. Huge luck to all of you! ;-)

    I'd love to play Miss Julie. I've been offered the part before but felt I was too young for it then. Now's a good time though (if anyone's casting it!!!)

    I'd also like to play Meryl Streep's role in Postcards From The Edge.

    Oh yes always wanted to play Iago (I know so many actors I could base him on!) Also a Columbo murderer. I'd love to lock dramatic horns with Peter Falk. In fact, I have a scenario all worked out: a Berkoff-like actor/director (all in black, white hair, clipped accent)who murders the actor playing the Inspector in a production of Crime And Punishment.

    Columbo turns up at the theatre while they're auditioning for the new actor and is ushered onto stage.

    A voice from the stalls (me) shouts out "Very well. In your own time. Come on, we haven't got all day. By the by, is it raining outside?"

    What do people think? I might send the script to Falk while he's over here flogging his book.
