Last week's antics on the Summer in February set

Hi guys, apologies for my absence last week. I had an eventful one to say the least! I was contacted by a friend of mine who is working with the production team of a new film coming out called 'Summer in February', starring Dominic Cooper and Dan Stevens. She asked me if I would like to be a stand-in for the leading lady !!!! I was very sceptical as I had no idea what this meant? Later I found out that all I would have to do as a stand-in is copy what movement/positions the actress does in her rehearsal, so the camermen and lighting team can set up the shot while she's having her hair and make-up done. Easy, peasy.

So a few days later I went and met a couple of the people on set and ended up starting THAT day! After being bundled away in a trailor for a couple of hours, I was then thrust down to hair and make-up?? and only had to go and do a REAL SCENE on FILM (camera's rolling etc etc!) alongside Dominic Cooper as a sillouette double for the actress eeeeekkk!!!! whilst 'improvising' a row, WHAT!!! obviously wasn't expecting this and was dying of embarresment as I'm super, super shy... but I'm so glad I did it, what a fantastic experience. I had so much fun all week, despite being outside all day and night in the freezing weather - luckily I was only there for the week as I've got a horrid cold now :( I've already been axed, it's a cut-throat industry haha! My skin colouring just "wasn't working!" :D (she was very pale!)
How about your week, anything exciting? I'll be back soon, lots to share with you.
Jessie, xo


  1. Wow! That is a lot of excitement in a short period of time. Hired and fired all in a week. I would have been terrified to be put on the spot like that. I'm sure you handled yourself superbly, no matter how short-lived the experience.

    Get well quickly.

  2. Ooh that sounds exciting! Maybe an acting career now beckons? !
