A couple of hello’s and a couple of goodbye’s

We are welcoming Grahame Wood back.  Hooray.  He actually hadn’t gone anywhere but is now based in LA where he has been producing television and film.  He has two more films going into production and it is a very exciting time for him as he has written them.  He still continues to act and is looking forward to returning to our screens this side of the pond.

The delightful Katy Gale is an exceptional musical theatre artist with a bubbly and delightful personality, she has a wonderful mezzo soprano voice, excellent dance including jazz and tap.  Perfect for those musical theatre roles which demand the naturally funny, quirky, strong acting/comedy skills.

 

We are saying goodbye to both Victor Akitunde and Lewis Newman and wish them great success for their future careers.  You know where we are boys.

 

Self tapes

My biggest nightmare.  Keeping track of when self tapes have to be back at casting directors for.  Never mind loving telling a client a 5pm to have a tape back to me by 10am the next morning and hearing the panic.

Yaron Shavit is having a very interesting week.  Lots of ADR and corporate work and of course Self Tapes

BACK TO WORK

After trying to have a week off and not succeeding in any way shape or form the office is officially open again.

What a busy day yesterday was and well done to JAMIE STRATFORD for securing The Best of Tickled Pink Tour starting next month.

Well done also to Vanessa Owen on her performance in Edinburgh.  A show that caused many mixed reviews because of its content of Male Rape but it has also courted much interest .

 

May Vanessa’s next show Chelsea’s Choice rehearsing next week prove to be a great success too.

HOLIDAY TIME

Dear Casting Directors, please note that I will be away from the office from Monday 21st to Tuesday 29th August inclusive.  I can of course be reached on my mobile 07957 334328 or by email on frances@francesphillips.co.uk.  I look forward to hearing from you all.
