You don’t have to sit around waiting for someone to give you a role. My buddy Rob Oldfield is a great example of this – he’s made a number of short films to showcase his talents and ideas. I’ve been involved in a few of them and this week he had a role for me in his latest short film, “Josh”, which sits in the suspense/horror genre (he’s a big fan).
I play a ghoulish character, but can’t share much more just yet (Rob wants to avoid spoilers). The ‘set-selfie’ above is of Rob and Jean Wong (DOP) – lots of fun working with these guys.
We wrapped after the last tube, so I had to catch two buses home. No, I didn’t catch a cab – I’m a ‘brassic’ actor. Home by 02:00 then up again at 06:00 to get to a marquee job in Wimbledon…thinking I should follow Rob’s example more.
