66. You mentioned that you had been a film extra, I was wondering if you could tell us a bit more about this experience? Also which movie was it? @Karin Schill
I was in the TV series Band of Brothers. I had to audition for my role even though it was a non-speaking part. The episode was directed by Tom Hanks and I played a civilian celebrating the liberation of France. I did 4 scenes but only 2 survived the final cut. We filmed in a studio just outside London in the middle of the night. There was a lot of green screen used but you couldn't tell when you saw the final episode.

How interesting! If you like podcasts, Angela, then I would definitely recommend Dead Eyes. I don’t want to spoil the premise if you haven’t heard about it, but it’s all about someone whose life was forever changed after he auditioned for a tiny part in Band Of Brothers. It’s really good!

Really? That sounds fascinating, I'm definitely going to listen to that podcast. Thanks James for bringing it to my attention.

Hey @Chloe-Fusco, how are you? Thanks for your question.

67. Have you ever visited Brighton? I'm living there, although I have family connections in France? @Chloe-Fusco
Yes, I've been to Brighton many times. Living in London, when I was young it was one of the closest coastal resorts to us, even though it took about 3 hours to get there. It's an interesting city, although I prefer a sandy beach to a pebbled one. They have a good marathon there which takes place about 2 weeks before the London Marathon and a friend of mine is always suggesting we run it one year sand o it's something I plan to do when the world gets back to some kind of normality.

It seems like a fun place to live, you must enjoy being there.

That's cool. I have actually heard about that Tv-series. :)
