Thanks for the days on Mr Selfridge this week as my first job with Uni-versal.


Mr Selfridge

l really enjoyed working as an extra, it was wonderful. Everyone was so friendly and the director remembered all our names. There must have been at least 60 of us but he was so patient.

I have just finished working on Mr Selfridge and loved it!


Mr Selfridge

I played a lord in Series 3 when Lord Loxley made his speech and also in the auction scene. The crew were very exact yet polite and everything was very interesting for a newcomer.
