IT'S HERE - episode 7 of #ActOnThisTV!

And I GUARANTEE you're going to love it - as I sit down with one of my best mates - actor Robert James-Collier!

Known most famously for playing the iconic footman, Thomas Barrow, in Downton Abbey - Rob has come A LONG WAY in the 15 years since I met him at an acting class in Manchester.

He's just been on our screens as Kevin O'Dowd in ITV's The Level - and the future is SUPER-bright for this guy!

I asked Rob to join me at 'On The 7th' in MediaCityUK for a long overdue catch-up and chat about ALL THINGS acting!

During our chat, Rob and I discussed:

  • Rob's experiences filming 6 seasons of 'Downton Abbey'.
  • What it's like when a dream job like Downton comes to an end.
  • Knowing when it's time to find a new agent - and when IT'S NOT!
  • Why NO ACTOR should ever rest on their laurels and get complacent.
  • How we can use FEAR to propel ourselves forward, rather than it crippling us.
  • What Rob learned from Dame Maggie Smith and the rest of the Downton cast.
  • How Rob landed his latest role in ITV's 'The Level'.
  • Auditions - and why you should ALWAYS remember to take your script into the room!
  • Why EVERY actor should have other passions in life - away from acting.
  • The power of gratitude - and what Rob is grateful for in his life right now.
  • Robs's BIGGEST life lessons.

And MUCH MUCH more!

This is one of the MOST HILARIOUS interviews I have ever conducted!
