Personal Quote:

What's interesting about the UK is that it celebrates an alternative voice. It's up for telling new stories. Within that fresh range of stories, there are quite a lot of interesting roles out there for young actors... if you seize every opportunity to do the best you can then, just like any freelance profession, word can spread and you might get wider opportunities.
