PREVIEW: 'Ackley Bridge' Roundtable - With Rob James-Collier & Jordan Hogg!Jul 22, 2019
I love it when 2 past guests of Act On This, end up working together on a great project - and that's EXACTLY what has happened here!
Actor Rob-James Collier, who you'll know previously as Thomas in Downton Abbey, and BAFTA-winning director Jordan Hogg (BOTH great friends of the site), recently joined forces on season 3 of Channel 4's Ackley Bridge.
The duo are 2 of the most positive and motivated people I know in the acting industry, and so I leapt at the chance of bringing them together, for an interactive phone-in with our PREMIUM members.
During our chat, we discuss:
- How Rob and Jordan got involved with Ackley Bridge.
- What it was like working on the show together.
- What Rob and Jordan learnt from the younger actors on the show.
- Rob's audition for Ackley, and why he always takes risks in a casting.
- The differences in period and contemporary castings.
- Why you really WANT a director to give you direction in an audition.
- How actors, not on Spotlight, can get on Spotlight FAST!
- Agents, and why communication with your agent is CRITICAL.
- Showreels, and the importance of production values.
- Why so much of life, is about ASKING for what you want.
- Why actors need to watch MORE TV!
- Working on short films and when it's appropriate to work for FREE!
- Rob and Jordan's TOP life lessons.
And MUCH MUCH more!
You're gonna learn A LOT from this - and it's also VERY FUNNY!
