Dodgy filmmaker

Daniel Brown
Actor

Last year I had the rather unpleasant experience of meeting Thomas Maylott, or rather I did on Facebook. He claimed that he worked for Hammer Horror and was planning on making a new Dracula film, with him as Dracula. Before I could go any further I was warned by another actor not to work with him. This was because he did not know what he was doing and wanted everyone to work for nothing. At the moment he keeps recasting actors to do yet another trailer and waste everyone's time. Has anyone else had experience of this man? Because I would like to stop him exploiting people.

Hi I spoke to him today and he gave me a part in this trailer they are doing? He did tell me if I see bad feedback about him online to ignore it?

Hi Ruth

Please ignore home. He will waste your time and energy. Block him on your phone and emails.

Hey guys! I’m so glad I read this. I was set to meet him to discuss the film tomorrow morning! I’ll give my time into getting some self tapes done instead. Thank you all!xx

An actress told him about me a few months ago and he pestered me for weeks. I would advise that he is avoided. He is not connected with Hammer Horror and there is some rather questionable amateur footage of him and a short film he made sometime ago on the internet. Not a professional at all and certainly no film maker.

Thank you for sharing. I've responded to a casting call that turned out to be him and at a meeting got a really weird feeling thankfully found this during my research.
