Back from filming the new webseries, The Desert, 4 shoot days later.
The script was exciting, the cast and crew were excellent and everyone was pushing for the best results – in short a very cool project to work on.
Not often I find myself in my own hotel room at the end of a shoot day – totally awesome getting a comfy en suite where I can switch off and regroup for the next day.
Shoots are crazy things – time becomes different – I love it. Like wrapping the day at 01:30am: everything is dead quiet and I’m exhausted but buzzing from the last scene – makes night time very different.
As planned I managed to lose a bit more weight to help embody my character Simon. By no means a Christian Bale/The Mechanist affair, but I’m hoping it adds to Simon’s unhealthy state. I was massively tempted to tuck into catering (doughnuts and chips were top on my list) but I managed to hold out till the end – go stomach! I eventually broke the fast back at the hotel with a family sized pack of chocolate éclairs…ummmhmmm
