2017 The WayBack - role 1950s Mum

 This summer I worked on an amazing Virtual Reality Film 'The Wayback' for Thomas Thomas Films.  It will soon be released.  What an amazing memory.  The film has been created to trigger memories in people with Altzheimers a process that has been proven to work - the power of film never ceases to amaze me.

 

 

 

2017 Forever Unconditional - role Mum

Recently I filmed the new pop video for Andy Watts' single 'Forever Unconditional' for 'As A Button Productions'.  It was a good role for me with some really dramatic scenes.  It's always interesting when you have no lines and have to convey your meaning without them.  From what I saw on the monitor our acting came across.  I haven't done a pop video for a long time so this was great. 

 

 

 

2016 Thames Rockets - role snaphappy tourist

This was the most fun corporate film I have ever made - who wouldn't want to zip across the Thames in a red speedboat?  And though I was playing a photo obsessive, I also got many beautiful photos of London from the water.  I recommend the Rocket Trip to anyone - you embark at the London Eye.

A genuine SOE suitcase containing a radio transmitter.  Weighing 30lbs they had to be carried by agents to different locations in order to avoid detection by the Nazis.  If they were caught with such a case they were shot - the agents risked their lives each time they made a broadcast.

 

 

2014 This Secret Place, role Margaret Hughes

In the Churchill War Rooms in the heart of Westminster a small army of people worked to plan Britain's war strategy and defence on many different fronts.  In the pre-computer age many secretaries were needed to type out top secret documents (always with two carbon copies).  Working in different shifts the typing never stopped through the war years.  It was amazing to play one of these tough ladies in the place itself.  

 

 

 

 

2014 ATL Teachers Union Corporate Film, role Primary School Teacher

2011 In Court With Queen Victoria, Talking Pictures Ltd, role Harriet Lepal Phipps

This drama is based on the book 'Victoria and Abdul' by Shrabani Basu.  It is a dual story about the exiled Maharajah Duleep Singh and the Munshi Abdul Karim.  Both men were close to Queen Victoria and her court.  My character Harriet Lepal Phipps, was Queen Victoria's secretary and enraged the Queen by refusing, on behalf of the Royal household, to dine with the Munshi which they felt beneath them.  A small but very interesting role.   With the use of Green Screen all kinds of backgrounds including Windsor Castle were visible as if we had been there.
