SO....One of my best friends in all the world (@david.mumeni
) has done something good, very very good he has started a charity @opendoorpeople
that helps young people from low income backgrounds get into drama school and become actors. (yes, I’m a little bit proud to call him my friend)
This cracking photo is me visiting his first batch of aspiring young actors- we chatted, we asked hard questions, we ate chocolate brownies and I gave as much advice as I possibly could whilst remembering how much of the world was at my feet when I started auditioning for drama school... that could be you!
After an amazing first year they’ve launched again, not just in London but the East Midlands too. So all you aspiring actors out there sign up and get involved. Deadline for London is 7th of November and East Midlands 23rd of November.
Now my papa worked in theatre but as a sound designer, so I grew up backstage watching the inner workings - the backbone of any show and THESE GUYS are also doing backstage too so if you fancy a job in lighting, sound, costume, prop making, stage management etc get involved.
