I have probably been acting all of my professional life. For the best part of 40 years practicing in the Courts of England and the US as a Barrister and New York Attorney. Predominantly, as as Defence Counsel I have tried every type of Criminal Case on both sides of the Pond with a 100% acquittal rate in Homicide cases, the last of which was In Kent in 2007. The Mantra I have always had when preparing a client for trial has always been:-
'I am the Director, Writer, Producer and Principal Actor and Storyteller. The Judge a nuisance and usually on the side of the Prosecution. The Prosecutor is out to get you, no matter what it takes. The Jury is the Captive Audience that decides your Fate. And you as the Defendant pays the price of my performance. The Courtroom is a stage.Together we have to put on the best show and please the audience. The truth is irrelevant'.
Although it has been said that Barristers are frustrated actors I am not one of them. Until recent years I had to get my 'fix' of being in court and performing. But that has passed.
Recently, I registered as an Extra with several agencies. Thus far in a relatively short space of time, I have had three calls and one audition In.my First, I was selected to be in shot for a particular scene. Second Call act as an American Food Vendor. This latest call the Director picked me from 50 plus extras to deliver two lines.
I have no training as an actor but have taught Advocacy techniques.
Now as a self employed International Legal Consultant my time is my own.
Acting now seems an interesting path to explore. That being the case I want to pursue that path and see where it takes me.
