the enamouring Loraine Ffrench of the
excellent award-winning French's Boutique. The

around Christmas. Once it has been released I

for my character from the film Cobra,

playing the fearsome Nightslasher.
More news on this
exciting project next week!
last few weeks have had a bit of a rest, which is
always a good thing. Now the pace is on again,
with auditions coming up left, right and centre.
One wonderful thing I have noticed is that Casting
Directors have become more helpful and with the note
that they want you to succeed, in a way giving
you your thoughts for the scene and character
and breaking things down in simple steps. Maintaining
great relations and rapport with all
members of the industry is a must, and the most
important thing is, be yourself, be
professional and be positive.
Have a look at this Fantastic Interview
with Matt Selby from Belinda Norcliffe Casting
and pay special attention.

of filming "W" went splendidly well, some really
nice shots taken. Editing will begin in October and film
will be ready by November. Want to say a Huge Thank
You to all the crew for a great time; Eli, John,
Dan, Giles and David. That wraps up W!!
this Glorious Sunday we travelled to Weybridge to
continue filming "W". Being surrounded by the
majestic Surrey countryside was breathtaking and
added an extra layer to the already inspired adventure.
Our new creature encounter today was with the gracious "Freddie
the Froggie". Share in the flow!!
in Nature and awaken to her Beautiful
flow!!!! This is the theme for the film "W" which began filming today. I play "W", a man
that awakens to this magnificent wave of Being. Some
very interesting shots, including Guerrilla filmed bus
scenes and encounters in the park with the "Holy Fool".
The day was made for me by a marvellous encounter with a
bright green caterpillar which I call "Boise".
More scenes to shoot tomorrow (Sunday) and Monday.
Thanks to the crew; Eli, John, Dan, Giles and David for an Absolutely Wonderful time.
interesting synchronicities; When I wrote my character
history I specified W's birthday as 2nd January 1971.
With no knowledge of this, the creators of the film, Eli
and John specified my date of birth on my i.d. card as
11th January 1971. Numerologically the dates are
the same!! Also on the back of W's work shirt are the
initials TG. I Love all these mysteries!!
filming on set for "The Protagonist" went really
well, lots of intensity, long day, many thanks to the
whole crew and Director Jacob Heaton. The scene
we were shooting is a parody of the film "Commando"
with Arnold Schwarzenegger. One of my favourite
movies. Filming continues tomorrow, Tuesday and
Wednesday. A lovely
little action piece!!!!
Mark Ramsey is all
wrapped now on "Female Serial Killer". Sunday was an
intense shooting day, in total 15 hours. Monday was more
relaxed. What an absolutely wonderful experience, had a
fantastic time. Thanks to Lex Hefner, Rosanna
Henry, Lilac Sheer, Bernadette Wood and the rest of the
Smokescreen Pictures crew. Huge Thanks to my partner
in crime Alexi Parkin. Jesus Christ!!
Here is an
interesting parallel I share with the German Actor
On Wednesday 21st August, I am
taking part in Secret Cinema: Mission Impossible
where I am playing an Associate of Max. In the
original Tom Cruise film, Andreas played the same part.
In 2002 I played one of Andreas's henchmen in the TV
Ultimate Force. And to top it all, our birthdays
are back to back. Andreas was born on 3rd
July and I was born on the 4th
July. I Love this Business!!
I find it
utterly fascinating that you get to meet so many
wonderful Creative people on your travels; Directors,
Producers, Casting Directors, Writers and of course
Actors. One Big Happy Family, all sharing the wonderful vision of
