A while ago i went down to Sheffield to audition for a special Olympics McDonald's advert that's running in July.
Then i had to go down to London for a wardrobe call, where i thought i would have to be wearing a union jack cap, union jack t-shirt and union jack shoes. It was a little excessive, but luckily when i got to Sheffield it was much more toned down.

It was a surreal day, i'd stayed overnight in a hotel down the road, a taxi picked me up at 7am, got to the stadium and went into costume and makeup, then sat in the stands while they set up the cameras.
Then the extras arrived, and there were so many of them! It was a little daunting, especially when the director had to announce to everyone that i couldn't whistle and needed someone to teach me.

I finished filming at about half ten in the morning, but i knew one of the camera assistants because he worked on Heretic, and he told me everyone else was there until half eleven at night.
Very surreal all together!
