At last I did some filming without my husband Sean, I mean that in the nicest possible way! There was a lot of buzz surrounding the new Birmingham-based ITV police drama ‘DI Ray’, so I was delighted when I landed the role of Eileen Shaw in episode 3. It was great to play a very gritty character in a brand new series set in the city where I trained.
The cast was lead by none other than Parminder Nagra, perhaps best remembered for playing Jess in the hugely successful film ‘Bend It Like Beckham’. She’s gone on to conquer America, appearing as Dr. Neela Rasgotra in ‘ER’ from 20o3-2009, ‘Ella Enchanted’, ‘MARVELS: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and ‘The Blacklist’ to name but a few.
It was great to share some screen time with her, to see a snippet of the scene pop over to my Showreel page where it’s the first thing you’ll see on my 2023 Acting Showreel.
