Extra on Christopher and His Kind

Today I had my second day on set on the Mammoth Productions TV film of Christopher Isherwood's memoir Christopher and his Kind. It is a BBC production, with a big budget, and Matt Smith (the new Doctor Who) as Isherwood, and is directed by Geoff Sax.

It's great getting a first person perspective on the set for a big period production, especially since it's set over three different decades of the 20th Century. The crew are all incredibly professional, and my fellow extras are very disciplined, and are always entertaining to be with (which helps in a sixteen hour callout).

Obviously, my intention is to be in the main cast for productions like this, but every step is a positive one, and I look forward to this screening in the winter.
