I just finished filming in Macau for a few days with an actor you probably have heard of who goes by the name of Rowan Atkinson. Now, if you’re not in the film industry then I forgive you for not knowing who he is and for those of you who may not have heard of him he’s the indelible character … Read More

Now here’s a funny idea that is worth sharing. For all the actors out there who tend to think inside the box, I’d like to give you an example of an actor, who you may recognise (but I won’t give you his name just yet), who at a young age made the audacious decision of writing a letter to a … Read More

A few weeks ago, I was shooting a Chinese film – a drama of all genres – around London and we were struggling to find a particular location which required from us to close down a junction, with a number of shops, for four days while taking over both streets and having to buyout the shops business for their troubles. … Read More
