Have you appeared at the Palladium before?

 

When I was a little girl Sunday Night at the Palladium was on and I just loved to watch it. Especially the Tiller Girls. It was the night before school and past my bedtime so I would sit on the couch and hold my breath hoping not to be noticed. But it is a dream come true for me.

Your first short film, Black Eyed Susan, is winning rave reviews - and awards. What inspired you to make it?

 

Being a strong advocate of mental health charities and talking about my own depression I wanted to show others how it feels to have clinical depression. It has proved to be very powerful and I’m so pleased at the response. It was a total shock to win an award in LA. The brilliant Nick Rowntree wrote and directed it and I was co-producer. My friends Kacey Ainsworth and Angela Lonsdale guest star. 

 

Your son also appears in the film. How did that come about?

Well, we needed a teenage boy to play the role. He was free - and who better? Of course I champion my kids to the hilt but he really was the best for the part. He has a beautiful stillness about him and the camera loves him. It’s something you can’t achieve even if you take hundreds of acting classes. Louie is just lucky he has the natural ability. 

 

If you had to give one piece to the younger you, what would it be?
