Which one person would you most like to work with and why? 


I would love to work with the one and only David Lynch. I have always been an admirer of how he pushes boundaries, not just the medium of film, but in his writing, directing, art, music and acting. He is what I believe is a true artist... as wanky as that sounds... I am a massive Twin Peaks fan and really like how he can make something so weird, funny, terrifying and beautiful at the same time. He seems to really respect his actors and collaborate with them in a fun and ultra creative way that gets the most out of them.

Mark Collins

Where are you up to right now?


I am currently waiting for the green light on two low budget independent feature films and want to be the best actor that I can possibly be, moving the audience through the story emotionally. I’m a late starter at 50 but convinced my life experience puts me in great stead to advance and progress to work with the best without chasing celebrity status :0]

Melissa De Mol

Which one person would you most like to work with and why? 


I would love to work with director Dexter Fletcher. I have loved every movie he has ever made, such heart and soul in them. Sunshine on Leith should, I believe, have won the Oscar! He always seems to get such fresh performances even from actors we have seen a lot... It would be great to learn from him I would basically play a lamp stand in one of his films.

Laura Garnier

Where are you up to right now?


Around my full time job at a creative agency, I am predominantly working as a voiceover artist and going up for commercials. I have experience predominantly in theatre, in some short films and motion capture (most recently for Lucas Film). I am awaiting material to be released so I can update my showreel. I also want to make contacts with other emerging talent and pull our skills together to create more work. I hope to bring my comedy sketches to life.

I would most like to work with Helena Bonham Carter and Mike Leigh in the same shoot. I think it would be the most fun, crazy and experimental shoot of all time. There's nothing I love more than exploring possibilities and improvising and Helena has the career I admire the most - and the charisma!

Which one person would you most like to work with and why? 


Joanna Hogg: I loved Souvenir and like what I hear about her style of working, I am very used to improvisation. Quentin Tarantino: He makes all actors fill the screen as if everyone one is a Hollywood legend. And he loves Cinema. Pedro Almodovar: For the wonderful stories he creates and the fabulous roles he gives women.

Which one person would you most like to work with and why? 


Shonda Rhimes. She not only started the TV revolution with Greys Anatomy (picking up from the ER shaped hole left in our lives!) but with her gripping plots and complexed yet relatable characters, every show she puts her name to is of a high standard that I could only dream of being a part of. I mean, she had 3 of her shows on back to back on Thursday nights (Greys, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder) that ABC gave her #TGIT which trended globally every week.

Which one person would you most like to work with and why? 


I'd love to work with Ben Wheatley/Amy Jump (High Rise, Free Fire, Hitchhikkers) as I like their DIY approach and think they have a really good eye for comedy vs. action/drama. The performances in their films are really interesting and I like that they work as a team (writer/editor, director/producer). I would also kill to be in a Yorgos Lanthimos film - The Lobster is a tense, hilarious masterpiece.

Above everything my favourite film maker Christopher Nolan is someone I would die to work with, he has such a unique way of story telling and visualisation that it really captures your focus and draws you in. I watched 'Interstellar' a year ago and there are still moments where I randomly think about scenes from that film. He is my go to favourite director and writer, with the level of passion and depth that he brings to the big screen.
