2013 is off to a great start. Nicola is now repped by the wonderful Susan Duff and kathy Schmidt at ITA All inquiries call : 818 980 4442. Here's to a fantastic year!
Nicola will be narrating, along with a cast of five wonderful actors, this modern spin on a traditional tale by Martin jago. Live at French's Book store on Sunset Blvd, Sat 22nd Dec, 2pm...come on down and join us for some good old fashioned holiday spirit!
It's all very exciting! Being on the front cover of Variety was one thing, being on the front cover of your husband's book is another. I'm so proud to have been part of this great work. It's an excellent book for all actors of all levels. I wish it was around when I started out - petrified of the bard! This is an easy, accessible and brilliantly written book with a forward by the very generous and hugely talented, Alfred Molina.
Thanks to all those that gave their time, effort and support.
To Play Or Not To Play: 50 Games for Acting Shakespeare is now available! Grab a copy, you'll be glad you did!
It's been a full year since joining SAG, put this and the global recession into the mix and we almost came to a standstill. It's taken a while for things to reboot. However, it's been an excellent start to 2012 so far. The auditions are coming thick and fast... and we're off.
I was so excited to cast my first vote for my fellow actors in the SAG Awards. It's The Actor's Award, one I will be so proud to receive in the future.
Since joining SAG things have slowed a little...... However,in preparation for the pilot season, I've reunited with my manager and I'm hoping that together we can generate some interest. Currently focusing on up-dating my tools/pics etc and doing all things comic - very scary!!! This should help and finally I need to add some American footage to my reel. Not so easy as its my British accent that they are usually interested in....
Well that's all for now, will get back when I have more exciting news to share.
My best wishes to all the wonderful people out there who have in one way or another helped me survive not only this business but the crushing recession too. Thank you, you know who you are!
Well it's June already, how time flies!
My voice agency (AVO Talent) have moved into a swanky new office on Wilshire - I wish them, and me even greater success!
I've been negotiating my way through the changes that joining SAG have brought and taking advantage of all the amazing workshops and information that's now available to help me move my career forward.
In the meantime I've just had my 340th audition!!! I can't believe it! Can you imagine going to 340 job interviews? Well that's exactly what it's like. 340 job interviews in 4 years...staggering when it's put into perspective.
Last week-end I had the good fortune to take part in Steve Kaplan's Comedy Intensive - a good starting point for me as I'm delving into a massive learning curve relating to all things comedic - don't ask why, I have no idea other than I feel compelled to. Maybe it's age - who knows. I'm happy to go with it and see where it takes me...
Well, it's been a great start to 2011. I enjoyed a couple of days ADR work on 'Pirates' thanks to my lovely team at AVO....more on that after it's release date...I met the brilliant Steven Berkoff here in LA of all places - it's not known for it's theatre....I've upgraded my communication options ie a brand new android phone with all the bells and whistles so I am now contactable on the go....
Wishing you all love, happiness and success! Nicola :-)
