My big screen debut
I found out today that I'm going to be an extra in a film. It's called Submarine and is being directed by Ben Stiller. Paddy Considine and Michael Sheen are the main actors and it's a comedy set in Wales. I've never done anything like this before and a friend from work noticed an article in a local paper a few weeks ago asking for anyone who wanted to be an extra to go along and have a photo taken. We went but forgot all about it until we both got 'the call' today! We are off 'on location' (just writing this is making me laugh) on Monday and no doubt I'll be right at the back of a crowd or even cut out altogether but we are both really excited to do something so out of the ordinary. We also get paid for doing it so I'm going to buy myself a silver bangle I've been lusting after as a souvenir of my big screen debut (and no doubt, finale!).
