The Great European Disaster Movie

This film is still available on the BBC iPlayer and created a big debate about the possible  future of the European Union. I had the pleasure of helping the post-production team with some fictional news headlines from a near future.

The Eternal Moment (Radio Drama)

Listen here to the mind-bending Radio Play by Iain Chambers and Peter Blegvad. It was such a pleasure to perform alongside the wonderful John Ramm.

The transformative power of storytelling is explored through my character Zoe, a psychiatric patient who believes she is the Queen of Time. Zoe is confident that her map-like drawings can evoke the ‘eternal moment,’ in which she’ll be set free of time itself. She also believes Cody, her art therapist, is the other half of her divided self – the King of Time.

I love my life!

What a great week! First doing a great and surreal radio play written by Peter Blegvad and directed by Iain Chambers and with the superb John Ramm. Next, venting any buried aggression by playing a woman raised by ogres in the video game ‘Heretic Kingdoms’ and then yesterday filming a heartfelt story of realisation and enlightenment. And tonight I’m teaching. I feel very well rounded!

BBC Radio Drama “Austerlitz”

wp3a748749_06

On Sunday December 16, 2012, BBC Radio 3 broadcast a radio dramatisation  of W.G. Sebald’s novel Austerlitz.

It was lovely to work with the great John Taylor from Fiction Factory again.

The first  of  Sebald’s haunting masterpieces to be dramatised for radio, it follows its protagonist on a haunting tour of European cities, frontiers to inner worlds as he struggles to discover the mystery of his origins.

Graceling Trilogy by Kristin Cashore

I recently completed reading these three fantasy novels for Orion publishing. A superb, critically acclaimed and already best-selling debut from a stunning new author.

Listen to an extract from ‘Graceling’

It was such a pleasure working in the Strathmore recording studio, particularly the lunchtime we spent trying to work out the accents characters from a fantasy world should have when heard by characters from a different part of the same world. It got very complicated!
