Ditched from The Duchess

Katherine Ryan’s new Netflix sitcom The Duchess came out today. I did a day on the show last year, and had a great time on set, as well as reading in a load of characters at the readthrough. Katherine is great, Toby the director was also lovely, and I have to thank Catherine Willis yet again for bringing me in the room. Unfortunately a few months ago I received a lovely email from Gavin the producer explaining that they’d had to cut my scene in half for run time, and therefore my dialogue had had to go. Obviously it’s a shame, but these things happen. Anyway, you can actually still see me sat in the audience in the scene above (which is in episode 3), so if you catch sight of me and think I’ve taken up background/SA work, now you know! My character was called Ted by the way. Maybe he’ll get another chance to appear!
