    About me

    I have been and done a few things: sales assistant in skirt dept of M&S, tennis coach, set designer for raves and corporate events, flooring engineer, photographer. For two and half years now I have been an extra and have had a lot of fun, even said the word 'Sarge' on screen. But acting has been in the back of my mind for years. Many years ago now I went to a few acting classes where the tutor said I was a natural; and I stood in for an actor for a rehearsal on one production and the director said I would be 93.5% better that the actor who couldn't be there - he still wants me to act in something some day. I don't really know if I'm a natural, but am up for some auditions should you like to give me a go. But mostly I'm just after new adventures and being an extra has given me many.

    Acting experience

    Went to some acting classes about 25 years ago. Had a few auditions, one for a Terry Gilliam production that never happened, shame as I was told they liked me. Had a short role as a BT repair man in a fetish love story - I was led off my a dominatrix. Also I had a small part in a student production called Ticked Off about 2 years ago, as an intimidating boss.
