Hey Instagram! I realise I've neglected you a little. My bad. My dm box isn't full of how are you and what have you been up to? messages, though, so I'm sure it's all good.
A lot of my Facebook friends have been loving that I've been spotted on tv recently so I thought I'd share a couple of the screenshots I shared over there. It's still strange that people see these and say they are proud of me. I mean, I'm just sitting or walking on screen. Not changing lives!
When I started doing this kind of work I didn't do it to be on tv. It wasn't a big interest. I didn't remember I was even with an extras agency 17 months ago. I just happened to be available and I just happened to enjoy being on set and being told what to do.
I'm beginning to realise that that's what people find inspiring. It's rare that people choose to do what they want to do. I believe we should all do things we enjoy, even if it's a little different to everyone else. I did it with my travel business and I'm doing it with this. I try something new, like it and stick with it; and occasionally friends get to see some of that journey. I get to inspire someone else to do what they've always wanted to do, just by doing something I want to do. It's great. I sign things so you can't really be part of the fun while I'm on the journey, but months later I may share.
There are thousands of supporting artistes that make up the background of thousands of tv shows and films. A few really want to be actors and actresses, some just do it for the money, others really want to be seen on tv or the big screen. I just enjoy being a part of something many people will end up enjoying. That makes me smile.
