Two Fat Ladies


At the beginning of December myself and Makeup Artist Riva Williams worked on a short film called 'Two Fat Ladies', directed by Martin De Lange, starring Anna Crilly (who played grumpy housekeeper Magda in Jack Dee's TV series Lead Balloon), Hazel Douglas (who played Professor Bathilda Bagshot in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1) and Beryl Nesbitt.
The film is set in a bingo hall and is about two 'warring' old ladies - Maud (Beryl Nesbitt) and Bertha (Hazel Douglas). 

Here are couple of behind the scenes shots:

Look Good Feel Better

http://www.lookgoodfeelbetter.co.uk/site/index.cfm

I'm attending my first session working with an amazing cancer charity called 'Look Good Feel Better' at Maidstone Hospital in Kent today. The charity teaches women going through chemotherapy how to combat the visible signs of treatment using skin care and makeup products and by the end of the session the ladies should all feel wonderfully pampered and will leave looking really lovely.

The Thompsons

So it's been a while since I updated my blog...I've been busy working on a new movie called The Thompsons, directed by THE BUTCHER BROTHERS Mitch Altieri and Phil Flores. The Thompsons is a sequel to an American cult horror called the Hamiltons (released in 2006). The cast and crew are amazing to work with, I'm loving every second, but you know, what with all the towelling down of hot sweaty actors on set and cleaning of fake blood from their torsos, frankly I'm exhausted!!:)
