It's a funny old business.....

There I was, sitting on the train minding my own business and reading the paper when..........

It's a strange business the world of entertainment. One minute your acting in a Steinbeck play and the next the director is asking you to take a picture for his next production ! Andy Gaukel is an American working in Glasgow and a real nice guy who works very hard, so I couldn't say no. He text me today, apparently this is now plastered across the walls of Glasgow in newspapers and on websites everywhere :-)
You can see the Wee Giant Theatre Company at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow on February 12th and 13th for ages 5-10. If you are in Glasgow, give him your support and take the kids for an enjoyable day out, they'll have fun. I certainly did !

More Infamous

I did promise to post a few more pictures of Daniel Craig and Toby Jones in Infamous. So here they are.

UKFilm.TV At The Oscars - Step 1 Book The Hotel

As Oscars fever starts, I hope to bring you a regular update on this blog and let you know about my travels and experiences in covering the Oscars for the first time. My press access was approved this week and I should be able to use my Sony phone to take pictures and blog them direct to your inbox from Hollywood, seconds after I've taken it. If you arrived at this page via an email, then you are subscribed. If not, send an email to - to stop receiving them, simply click on the link at the bottom of any email you receive.

First of, I've booked the hotel. The Hollywood Renaissance Hotel is the actual hotel where the Oscars are being held. I had to be quick just to get a deluxe suite, as the standard rooms were all taken as you can imagine. I'm also getting in touch with my BAFTA LA colleagues and the various publicists at Sony, Warners etc to try and get invites to some of the events and infamous parties in and around the city. I'll let you know how it goes in the next update.

And Martin Freeman

Martin is not in the film but like all good actors, he mingled in and played the part of the star that he is. Breaking and entering is his latest film where he plays opposite Jude Law.
