Emma has just finished playing a Red Cross Nurse during WWII for an immersive event that has just finished it's run on site at The Churchill War Rooms. Performing in the exact historical location, in an authentic WWII nurse's uniform within the war rooms as they were left - as though Churchill, his wife, the War Cabinet and staff had just walked out of the door - was a unique and moving experience.
This week Emma performed in a Rehearsed Reading of a TV pilot called Carcass which was about the future of humanity and time travel. The pilot was also recorded and subsequently broadcast on Radio Wandsworth.
This week Emma performed in a Rehearsed Reading of short play called Bus for From Page to Stage's rehearsed reading event at The Horse and Stables. A wonderful and well-attended evening (full house as usual) for writers to present their work to an audience and an industry panel who then give valuable feedback.
Emma was sad to say goodbye to King Kong and all the fun of the UK Tour of Lumières, Caméra, Action. The play was very well received and she thoroughly enjoyed working on a comedy and in french too!
As she says goodbye to the tour, Emma continues with her corporate role play work and has just taken on a new role for a new client which is as far removed from a french farce as can be!
Emma has begun the UK tour of a french comedy called Lumières, Caméra, Action. It is the first show Emma has performed in French.
The play is based around the making of a supposed 'Big Budget' film 'King Kong in Paris' which is being directed by the most famous filmmaker in France. It starts with good intentions but as time passes the film turns into a disaster as more and more problems occur. The lack of funding and big names reduces the intention of a 'Blockbuster' into something quite different. How will they fare at the Cannes Film Festival?
Emma plays a number of roles in the play including Sandrine Poussin ("la plus belle actrice de France"), Nathalie - the casting director and a rather lazy, incompetent waitress.
Emma has recently finished filming on short film Sunrise - a psychological thriller about Faith, a young conflicted girl who is perplexed when she notices people treating her in an odd way and begins to undergo hallucinations. Emma plays Faith's Mother. What is she keeping from her daughter?
Written and directed by Habeebah Wahb.
As well as continuing to work as a role-play actor on the Accredited Counter-Fraud Specialist Diploma training, Emma is currently working with other clients in both the public and private sector including a large recruitment assessment project for a government department.
Emma has just shot two commercial campaigns for Venn Group - including a comedy spot where she plays an office worker who has lost the plot and starts eating the plant from her desk as chaos reigns in the office around her.
Emma has enjoyed working with RNA Training again this week, helping to deliver Advanced Interview Skills training for Counter Fraud Specialists through mock interviews under caution.
Emma has just finished filming on Reconnected in which she plays Angelina, wife to Brian and mum to Carly and Tim, as the family go on an unexpected journey together when Europe is hit with a mysterious online outage. The film is now in post-production.
