4 years ago, I started producing LIVE video broadcasts for Act On This - my very first guest was an actress I'd met, whilst shooting an episode of C4's Hollyoaks.
My guest was Rachel Shenton - and you can go watch that broadcast here.
Fast forward 4 years and Rachel has moved on from Hollyoaks - now making BIG waves in Hollywood, with her Oscar-winning short film 'The Silent Child'.
Obviously, I had to bring Rachel back to the site to tell us all about this incredible journey!
During our chat, Rachel and I discussed:
- The mayhem that ensues when you win an Academy Award.
- What happened to Rachel upon leaving Hollyoaks, and why she looked to the US for acting work.
- The reason Rachel chose to begin writing a short film.
- The FEAR and 'imposter syndrome' she encountered as an actress, writing for the first time.
- How she went about funding The Silent Child.
- The process of shooting The Silent Child.
- Why she wanted to cry, the first time she saw the rough-cut of the film.
- How to attack the short film festival circuit.
- The first email she received from The Academy.
- The future of The Silent Child.
- The advice Rachel would go back and give herself at the very start of the process.
And MUCH MUCH more!
