Actor plays big mac casualty
My character, Mercedes, was so edgy and manipulative, which is so different to anything I've played before, and potentially a bit of a challenge!
Needless to say my life has not taken any of the paths hers has, so I wouldn't be drawing on personal experience, not that I had any experience fighting dinosaurs for Primeval etc. So, after hearing I got the role my focus instantly turned to a bit of character creation. My first thought was to grime myself up a bit, to look like I'd been through the mill so to speak even more than I have, hehe!
So off I trotted to Camden market and on my market travels I bumped into a lovely lady called Florence, who makes and sells absolutely brilliant braids of all colours, shapes and sizes - tons of which I bought tons for Mercedes, the lucky girl. Followed by nose rings, ear cuffs, hippy-themed earrings and all sorts! Oh, if only I'd been able to pick the wardrobe! Any excuse to spend a few quid down Camden market! After all that highly important stuff that I like to prioritise aka shopping!
I went down to Cardiff where the show is filmed to begin my Casualty adventure! I made a detour to Salisbury on a pit stop to get my hair done on the way by my amazing hairdresser Stephanie Horrill who, bless her, has been dying my hair every week for continuity as it washes out so fast. So it's been a lot of Cardiff-via-Salisburys for me recently, although there are definitely worse places to pass through - it's beautiful and the market is great! And TK Maxx! The first week was pretty action-packed as I was in a fight in a local park outside the public toilets classy!
The cast and all the team were so warm and welcoming it really was a great first week! I don't want to give away any more storylines but it's all go for Mercedes; she certainly comes with a huge amount of drama in tow! I'm still filming now and will be sad to leave her when the time comes, as it has been such a great job and lovely team to be involved with. It's a really nice set up in Cardiff the studio is in the dock next to the Doctor Who experience and it's a lovely peaceful place.
I used to watch Casualty when I was a kid and I remember a lot of the cast like Charlie, who's still there, an absolute legend! After leaving school in , he became an assistant stage manager through a Youth Opportunity Scheme at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven, where he stayed for a year. After occasional acting roles, he Filmography by Job Trailers and Videos.
