  • I had a featured walk-on role as a Police Officer - it was a truly amazing experience. The Director Lone Scherfig asked for my opinion on the role I was playing which she took on-board. I shall never forget this experience and I'm so looking forward to watching this film - thank you Universal Extras for this truly amazing opportunity.

  • I spent 3 night shoots propping up the bar in the pub scene and in close proximity to the "posh" boys. I enjoyed this shoot very much; interesting scenes, nice location, good catering at base, great to meet fellow SAs old and new.
