I was a Uni-versal EXTRA on the Small Axe production, and it was the best TV extra experience I have experienced so far. I was born in the 1970s, so the historical and cultural setting that included the iconic beret hats and Afro of the 1970s felt personal. I also met other supporting artists, both locally and nationally. It really was a fun day on set.
