August 2015

Hi Guys

For those of you who read this section on a regular basis, please accept my sincere apologies for not keeping it up to date.

There are no real excuses, but I've had a busy few months with a whole host of personal admin and housework projects that needed completing.

A little while ago, Philippa, my agent of 12 years (with a little sabbatical), announced she was retiring. It was a huge shock as we went back a long way and had a very successful working relationship.

It meant I had to start looking for new representation, I met with 4 different agents, 2 of whom had been recommended to me (cheers Mike and Mark) and 2 who had responded to my letter of request. In the end, it was a no brainer, I met with Ashley at Cole Kitchenn and we just seemed to hit it off. His passion for the business, his knowledge and “black book of contacts” along with his understanding of my needs and requirements, made the transition very easy and he is already hard at work, beavering away on my behalf.

As I write this in mid August, I have already been seen for great parts on Citizen Khan and Grantchester, I am really looking forward to the future with such a well known, reputable and proactive agency, and I am delighted to have become part of the Cole Kitchenn stable.

Because of the change of agents, I thought it would be a great opportunity to overhaul the website, get some new headshots done and edit more of my TV clips. This is now complete, and the new look website is up and running – it's even available to view properly on a mobile phone or tablet!

My thanks to Dan for the photo session, Sean for the editing, Bhushan for the website upgrade and Dave for the show reel update, without these people, it wouldn’t have been possible.

So, in a nutshell, that's why I've been a bit lax, however, it's business as usual from now on, with regular monthly updates, so please keep checking back to see what's been happening, or more excitingly, what's going to happen !?!?

Until next time, take special care
