Any regular readers may have noticed that my blog was rather dormant from October through November, this was partly because I started a new job (yes I do have a full time day job alongside all the media work) and I had a quick trip to the US to see family.
It was also due to filming commitments – hurrah!
Back in September I was fortunate to audition and be cast in a guest role in BBC1’s Casualty. As I’ve mentioned before the roles for a disabled actress are rather thin on the ground, so when an opportunity like this comes along it feels brilliant; not just on a personal level as an actress but also as a disabled person keen to see better representation of disability on screen. I’m not going to give anything away with spoilers but I had a brilliant time filming it, the cast & crew were great and it’s a pretty damn exciting episode!
It’s a feature length episode due to broadcast on Saturday 7 January 2012, what better way than to spend the first Saturday of the New Year curled up on the sofa watching some quality BBC drama?!
