PREVIEW: Living Beyond Your Circumstances - With ‘Leading Actress’ BAFTA Nominee Ruth Madeley!

video interview preview Aug 20, 2018

I met Ruth Madeley whilst auditioning for Jack Thorne's BAFTA-winning BBC drama Don't Take My Baby back in 2014, and have wanted to get her on Act On This ever since.

Ruth is not only a phenomenal actress, but also a massive inspiration - having continually beaten the odds in both her acting career and in life itself.

Born with spina bifida and a spinal condition known as scoliosis, Ruth grew up thinking that the acting industry wouldn't be open to people like her.

Her journey to BAFTA fame has been a long and winding one for sure!

During our chat, Ruth and I discuss:

  • Why you don't need drama school to be nominated for a BAFTA.
  • The audition process we both went through for 'Don't Take My Baby'.
  • Getting in the zone before highly emotional audition scenes.
  • Losing out on castings that you know you are PERFECT for. If disabled actors are represented well enough in TV?
  • Being nominated for a BAFTA in the same category as your acting heroes.
  • What it's like behind the scenes at the BAFTAs.
  • Ruth's hopes and fears for the future.
  • Ruth's most valuable advice to anyone starting out in the acting industry today.

And MUCH MUCH more!

If you have a dream, but you're facing adversity right now - you NEED to watch this!
