Blog Upcoming Feature

Get your questions in for Jordan NOW!

Hey folks - great news!

Today, I confirmed my special guest for #ActOnThisTV episode 6 - BAFTA nominated director, Jordan Hogg!

I've known of Jordan for a number of years, but only met him recently when he auditioned me for a role in Coronation Street. Upon meeting him, his passion and enthusiasm for his work was so incredibly obvious - I knew I HAD to get him on the show for a chat!

Jordan first honed his skills as a director on series 6 & 7 of the critically acclaimed Shameless for Company Pictures/ Channel 4 and was then selected to be a member of Channel 4’s Shooting Party.

In 2010, Jordan joined Channel 4’s Hollyoaks, where he directed over 40 episodes across a three-year stint - and was nominated for the Channel 4 CDN 'Best Breakthrough Talent' award.

He then went on to become a regular director for BBC’s Doctors, directing over 40 episodes.

Jordan has also directed the BBC spin-off from Radio 4 series Craven, as well as directing and producing several short films and companion pieces and DVD extras for both Shameless and Hollyoaks.

I'll be sitting down in the awesome 'On The 7th' to interview Jordan on the evening of February 10th 2017 - AND I WANT YOUR QUESTIONS!

There are no stupid questions - except the ones YOU DON'T ASK - so if you have a question you want Jordan to answer, please submit it!

Your question could be on casting, directing, working with actors... ANYTHING - please shout up!

    Hi, I would like to ask a question which is very obvious but important. How would you recommend starting out as an actor aged 16. I’m in professional training to act, go to a drama club and am on set from time to time but how do I get noticed?

  • Eloise Black

    Hi Jordan, how much say do you have when it comes to calling actors in for an audition for a TV show? Will it be mainly up to the casting director or an equal collaboration?

  • Mary Fogg

    Hi Jordan! We often hear the phrase ‘he/she is easy to work with’ etc and would love to know, in your professional role as a quality director, what type of things for you would make one of your actors easy to work with? ….would also love to know the opposite. What would kind of put you off!
    Thanks Jordan!
    Mary 🙌🏼

  • Hello Jordan, I think your a terrific director and I throughly enjoy watching your work. I’d just like to know what has been the highlight of your career so far? And is they anything you’d hope to achieve In the future that you haven’t achieve yet?
    Thank you!

  • Hi Jordan, Firstly congratulations on your BAFTA and C4 nominations!
    I am a British actor based in the U.S. with representation both here and in the U.K. However my London agents, are having an incredibly difficult time, obtaining opportunities for me to tape for U.K. Directors.I realize budget constraints are incredibly restricting,and also that I’m not “in the UK casting loop”. I would be open to self financing my travel and accommodation expenses just to obtain quality credits in the U.K. Can you offer any advice to actors based abroad on “breaking in” to the UK scene ?
    Cheers, Richard.
