On Wednesday 23rd July I made a trip to London as I had been cast as an extra for a new television show for E! set to air in America in 2015. The show is called The Royals and Elizabeth Hurley plays a fictional Queen Helena based in modern day England.
The scene I was involved in was a silent disco where Merrit Patterson and William Moseley are on a night out in Shorditch at a secret underground club and it’s a silent disco night. We shot a few scenes in this silent disco and it was really good fun. I was quite close to Merritt Patterson in the scenes so we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled when it shows. It was super hot so we were really grateful for the rooftop breaks in between takes.
It was a really valuable day in terms of networking because I got to speak with so many other performers of varying backgrounds before we went up to shoot. They gave me so much information about getting castings for other extras work and bits and pieces like that. I also met a really free-spirited person full of sooooo much positive energy, called Bruja. I think I’ll be spending lots of time around her when I’m in London.
A great day all round, almost didn’t feel like work. That’s the best kind of work right ?! If you enjoy it, it isn’t really work.
