I spent a fantastic evening dancing in the late Amy Winehouse's bio 'Back to Black'. We had to learn the words of the song 'Back to Black' - which obviously wasn't hard as it was a great song. This is just one of the productions I've been luckily enough to be involved with whilst signed up with Uni-versal Extras. The production teams, from directors to the runners, are so very helpful and you can't help being inspired working with them as part of a team. I don't mind when it's an early start as I know when I arrive, there is a breakfast that is seriously fit for a king and sets me up for the day. The pay is really good and if I tell you about the lunch and tea choice of meals you'd think I'm lying. Your best bet is to sign up and see for yourselves. It's one of the best things I've done in my life.
