One of Us [BBC Miniseries, 2016]
Pros: Doing a location shoot, off-road speed car chase and rocking a real police uniform.
Cons: Being pressured to strip down out in the open because they had "no facilities available".
Fun Fact: In my role as the 'attractive wife', I lost my wedding ring behind a car seat within minutes of putting it on. Future husband, be warned!
Outlander [Starz TV, 2014-]
This was the first and last time I filled out a casting call form that ended with the question: 'Are you able to bring your own chicken or other farmyard animal?' Alas, I was not but thankfully I got the job anyway and spent about a week in costume fittings and hair and make-up so that they could perfect the historic Scots villager look. My make-up artist and I had an unspoken understanding regarding the extent to which she would cover me with dirt and grease: she was a doll. However, the stylist decided that I looked like too much of a princess so a tub of oil was dumped on my head.
Pros: Being involved in an internationally famous show, wearing a genuine period costume.
Cons: An angry bull had a tantrum on set and nearly skittled a crowd of performers.
Fun Fact: It took us over 12 hours to shoot a scene that was only 30 seconds long
in the final cut!
