Be a working Actor


Hello, I've been knocking about in this game for many years. I remember the day I left Arts Education in London and thinking "what do I do now"? I had no agent, no work and didn't really know how to go about it. Drama school was great for many things, but teaching the business it was not.

 Personally, I was hard working and imaginative (obviously, I'm an actor) and I soon began to work out how to work. I went from a co-operative agency in Nottingham to one of the biggest agencies in the world. I have worked in profit share all the way up to Hollywood movies and as I look around I see young performers struggling to get started. We at Hard Graft have a long history of employing young actors, but we can't do everything. So what can we do? Anyone who has worked for so long in this industry sees it differently to you.  I now produce theatre, so I'm on the other side of the table and I see mistakes actors make, mistakes I've made myself. So, what if I offered a 'How to work as an actor course'? If there are enough of you I will book a room and share my knowledge. Probably be £20 each for the afternoon. Pop your details here and I'll get back to you.

I want to act.

Two, too hot in Tenerife

Let's face it, why would you want to spend January in the Great British weather?  We don't we like to feel the sun on our faces and the warm African wind in our hair.

Every January, like a sparrow Mark and Jo migrate to warmer climes.  This year we have travelled to Tenerife, the largest of the Canary islands off west Africa.
