Is It a popular soap?

RomanyRoots · 18/12/2018 00:08

OP, if it's like entering a family and you have done lots of rehearsals and filming are you sure you should be posting here?
I'm sure you know what you are doing, but just checking.

Thacreoys · 18/12/2018 00:23

ClemDanFango- it has its fair share of viewing figures
Like I said above, won’t divulge names/ which one etc. But other than that ask away... I might not be able to answer certain questions...
RomanyRoots- well, I’m not on here to specifically slag anyone off or to reveal any confidential details. And there are no ‘rules’ on sharing what my day to day job is like.
Also, there is practically next to no rehearsal time, so sadly nothing like ‘lots of rehearsals’

Do you get star struck? I mean meeting long term/high profile cast members?

Were you a full/part/no time watcher of the soap before you got your part?

Will you be watching it now?

JaneJeffer · 18/12/2018 00:44

ITV, BBC or C4?

Thacreoys · 18/12/2018 00:58

italiancortado- not really star struck, but when I first started I was constantly terrified on set. There is a load of prep and set up for each scene so I didn’t want to be the one that messed things up to make everyone ( and there are loads of them) in the crew have to do it all again... in the end, I realised it wasn’t such a big deal, unless we were running behind time.

Are the other mainstream character actors nice to you or do some act like 'divas?!' X

Thacreoys · 18/12/2018 09:13

Mummylife2018- at first I thought they were a bit full of themselves, but after working for a few months, I realised that its such a high energy hob where you can’t let your focus go and so, really they’re just focussing on the job at hand. Also, there are a lot of people who come and go quickly, so it’s understandable that they don’t get to know everyone. But there’s never an excuse to be rude. I’ve seen a few tempers flare between director and crew, but not between cast members... yet ;)

Is it one of the 4 main soaps?

Wherearemymarbles · 19/12/2018 11:28

How much do you get paid?

SoaringSwallow · 19/12/2018 14:35

How many hours a week do you work and how does that work? Do you have to be there only days (or times) when your character has a scene, or more than that?

gingerrubber · 19/12/2018 14:46

are you normal looking or better looking than the average person?

GreenHillOpposite · 20/12/2018 20:27

What's your typical working week like?

thenightsky · 20/12/2018 23:20

Ask me anything? Really?

PFB1 · 20/12/2018 23:23

How much do you get paid?

JaneJeffer · 20/12/2018 23:26

You are obviously filming a major storyline at the moment...
