  • I had a fantastic time playing a Spanish Guard and a Spanish Secretary. I really enjoyed being on set with world class actors. It was a big scene filmed in Kirkstall Abby and on one of the smaller sets in the mill at Keighly. The production team was great and they made us feel very welcome. It was also wonderful to spot myself in my two disguises. Thanks a lot!

  • I had an interesting and enlightening night shoot for the Spanish inquisition scene. Looking forward to working on a period drama again.

  • I really enjoyed my day on Gunpowder. Lovely people, brilliant set and extremely muddy. Pleasure to stand next to Liv Tyler and Kit Harington and to be seen on screen!
