MCM Comiccon November 2018 was my first commicon in a while and I mainly went to catch up with my friend Tabitha Lyons, it turned out great though even if it’s made my cold come back with a vengeance today.
A couple of months ago Brendan Coyle sent me a message to say he would be appearing in a play in Bath, The Price, and did I want to catch up with him? It was July 2017 when we filmed our scenes together for Requiem so I was very eager to see him and have a catch up.
Most of this post was written last year (2017) shortly after filming my scenes for Requiem but hasn’t been posted until today due to my non-disclosure agreement. I appear as Kendrick’s son in episodes four and six. There may be spoilers ahead! (I have tried to keep them to a minimum though) The Offer A Read more about Requiem – It’s an extras life for me[…]
The weather didn’t look too bad on Tuesday so I decided to risk visiting Dyrham Park, I try to do shorter visits to places in the colder months as wrapping up in the many layers necessary restricts my movement and sitting in a wheelchair can become very uncomfortable when you are so bundled up.
Last week I saw a picture on Twitter of St. Edwards Church in Stow-on-the-Wold, it looked like something out of a fairy-tale so I did some research and found out some people think it was the inspiration for Tolkien’s entrance to Moria! The next day I headed for Stow-on-the-Wold and took some pictures of the church, after this it occurred to me that I lived in the middle of Tolkien country and there must be lots of places nearby that inspired Tolkien’s stories. So finding Middle Earth has become my project over the winter, I’ll be travelling around trying to take some fantasy style pictures of Tolkienesque places, maybe I’ll spot some Hobbits on my journey, I just wish I had a grey wizard to guide me.
After the drama of the first few days in hospital things did slowly improve, there was still the constant worry I’d have another angioedema episode, or that they would need to cut the open, but there was light at the end of the tunnel and I was starting to think I would really get home soon.
