Last week saw a couple of very interesting comedy commercial castings and a trip to a school to play a teacher.
I'm an actor who is constantly surrounded by teachers, because everyone in my family and many of my friends seem to think Aristole's quote, "Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach." is more appropriate than the more frequently quoted, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach." My mother is a teacher, my uncle is a teacher, I married a teacher and my best friend is a teacher amongst others. Therefore playing a teacher was a wonderful challenge.
I also got to work with a very talented young actress from the itv workshop. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product, which will be used to help teachers adopt an emotion coaching style, once the edit is complete. The film is produced by Suited and Booted Productions.
