I can’t believe I’m about to show you guys this…I fought with myself about whether it was a good idea for a good long while. But in the end I decided hey, this is what I do, I may as well share some of it with you!
Sooo here is a little collection of scenes from different jobs I’ve had recently, edited together for a ‘showreel’. Hopefully there will be many more jobs and many more scenes to add to it in the future.

So on days when I need a good’ol kick up the bum or some extra inspiration I take a look at my favourite actors and their work. I find the audition process quite intimate and intense. You put everything you have into each one you go to. So I thought I’d share this video of Rachel McAdams…
I love Rachel McAdams, she is one of my favourite young actresses and seeing her go through the same process the rest of us struggling actors do gives me the inspiration I need to get on with it!
