Welcome to episode 4 of #ActOnThisTV!

I am super-excited to launch this episode with TOP exec producer - Tom Sherry from Red Production Company!

It's not every day us actors get to speak to the high-powered execs, and Tom is one of the best in the industry.

Tom has produced MASSIVE TV drama, including ITV's Paranoid, the awesome Scott & Bailey, Ordinary lies and Prey, to name but a few.

I asked Tom to join me at 'On The 7th' in MediaCityUK to open up the world of high-end producing to you!

During our chat, Tom and I discussed:

  • The actual roles and responsibilities of an exec producer.
  • The secrets behind Red Production Company's continued success.
  • Why Tom chooses the casting directors he works with regularly.
  • What disappoints him most about some actors at audition.
  • Why casting smaller roles is often much harder than the big ones.
  • Why good actors earn their opportunities in life.
  • Why ALL actors should be nurturing a solid presence online.
  • Why you should NEVER give up if you believe passionately about what you're doing.
  • Why preparation is key to anything.
  • Tom's BIGGEST life lessons.

And MUCH MUCH more!

This is a unique opportunity to hear from one of the country's most talented execs!
