Acting in a play like Black Watch has not only broadened my mind in terms of acting, but it was a play that allowed me to really understand what it's like being a soldier in one of the most dangerous places in the world. One of the biggest challenges was trying to capture the emotion that these soldiers feel while in Iraq. When the Regiment has been a part of the family for generations and it's the obvious choice of employment, the terrible turn of events that causes them to leave all of it behind, is potentially catastrophic.
Being directed by 6.1s has meant the play really broke down the age gap and taught me how to work with people that I wouldn't necessarily be with in other situations. It has been a lot of hard work but being in it, for me, was extremely worthwhile. It has been great fun and I can't wait for the next one.
