i'm going to be in a movie

Well kind of, don't get too excited!

I am actually going to be an extra in a movie called 'Mao's Last Dancer' you may have read or heard of the book. They are filming the movie in China, Australia and America and I have two days filming in May - one at the beginning and one at the end. It's directed by Bruce Beresford who is an Aussie Director who directed movies like Tender Mercies and Driving Miss Daisy.

Anyhoo - as I said it is just an extra part and I might end up on the cutting room floor but I think it might be fun. I go for my costume fitting on Thursday so I guess I will find out what I will be then as I don't know many more details. I imagine it will be long days and a bit boring waiting around but it might be fun and I might meet some interesting people, if nothing else it will be a good experience.

I guess when the movie comes out if I don't make the cutting room floor then you might be able to pause your video/dvd recorder and see me. I will keep you posted on how it goes!
