On my dad's side I'm Scots Irish. So, my family was from mmm's stomping grounds, but lived for a while amongst ASJ's folks before hightailing it across the Atlantic.

I'm a result of the Great American Melting Pot. On mom's side I'm pure English. Guess I can't take a position on the Scottish Independence question.

I'm writing a song. It's a rock'n'roll one, Chuck Berry-style. It's about glasses.

One person in this community knows what I'm on about a-hard-days-night-george-10

Is anyone here not (at least) partially Irish?

We breed like bloody rabbits, I guess its all because of our sexy accent a-hard-days-night-george-10

I made myself pass out today :P I was doing a monologue where the character is slowly descending into madness, I felt pressure at the top of my head and the next thing I woke up on the floor with my head spinning. 

First time that's ever happened was quite weird a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Do you act a lot?

It's my part-time career :P I've been acting since I was 4 and did my first couple of years with a teacher from The Royal Irish Academy of Music and Drama. When I was 7ish I did my first ever paid job with a touring company around the west of Ireland which was great fun. From then on I've been doing paid work and unpaid work (mostly the latter rather than the former :( ). Nothing I've done though was "big" though just little companies who did theatre for the love of it. I've done everything from Shakespeare to musicals to short films to extra work to dubbing (I could have been in 'Vikings' but I had no way of getting to Dublin which to say the least slightly irritated me and I'm definitely going to apply for Game of Thrones the second I turn 18 :P). 

For the future, I'm not certain if I'll audition for RADA next January or not, if I could somehow make a decent living off of acting I would do it in a heartbeat. Acting is a passion of mine as I always used to think of myself as a bit "weird" until I joined a youth drama group when I was 12 who were just as mental as I am. Being different characters is a form of escapism for me, I get to be someone else, whether it be a plague victim, a cat, a simpleton or a prostitute (yes I have done all of them, don't ask about the last one a-hard-days-night-paul-3). I'd say I've done around 150 different acting jobs (whether that's promotional stuff, plays, poetry recitals, short-films, extra work blah blah) over my 12 years as an actor, about 30 of them being paid work (and the pay is awful- bloody minimum wage for an under 18 year old a-hard-days-night-paul-11).  I'm at the awkward stage in that I'm 16 but a lot of people who are over 18 look like they could play a 16 year old so they take the jobs I could get (it's easier to employ someone who is over 18). 

I try and do a monologue/recite a poem at least once a week to keep me in tune (I don't really plan to work for the next year and a half and when I get into college maybe try and do something with The Druid Theatre which would be amazing!). 

And that's my whole acting life condensed into a few badly-written paragraphs which are littered with smileys, feel free to ask questions :P

Oh and when I fainted, it was just in my bedroom nobody actually saw it (darn)

A lot of the teenagers and people in their 20s who I worked with went on to do film studies in college (which also answers Ron Nasty's question about how the hell did I know about the French film 'Baise-Moi' :P). They are always making short-films and I generally help them in whatever way I can.

Stage acting is very expressive, you have to be over-dramatic with your actions so the people right at the back can see you, you also have to speak louder for the same reason (the majority of professional shows with the exception of massive West-End and Broadways do not use microphones). Whereas working up close with a camera you keep your general actions to a minimum and you don't need to speak as loud (obviously). 

A friend of mine described it the best "When you're acting on stage you use your body, when you're acting for a film you use your eyes". You focus less on showing your emotions and more on having them, film allows you more to connect with your character than stage, I think.

I do prefer stage acting overall though, doing one scene from the beginning and one scene from the end of the film, really messes with your acting unless you're a strong actor.
