Line of Duty – It’s good to be back!

It was wicked filming with Jed Mercurio, Vicky McClure, Kelly Macdonald, Perry Fitzpatrick and the whole cast & crew for season 6 of Line of Duty. The scenes are intense and quite dramatic, but that is what I enjoy acting. It’s exhilarating.

Thank you for all the interest, support and encouragement on social media, and to all my new followers on Twitter. I think it’s great to see more people living with Down syndrome on mainstream TV, and I’m so happy to play a role in that! I hear it had almost 10 million viewers and that is rather a lot really.

Jed is a brilliant writer. The scenes were intense but that is what I enjoy acting.

Talking about our film Innocence with Mariella Frostrup on Times Radio

I do like playing someone with powerful emotions. My character  takes control, he thinks things out, plans carefully……In the words of Hamlet ‘we fools of nature are wondrous too’. We are all different just like everyone else. I wish even more TV shows and films would realise this and write even more powerful roles and characters for us.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFvagh-Z7GY&t=15s I start talking  at 6.57mins
