Me on the set of Most Haunted

No !! in fact, this is Jane Button, Ian Donaldson and myself onstage at Hogmanay in Sotteraneos, Glasgow.
It turned out to be a one and three quarter hour extravaganza.
Even George Melly was impressed, (that's him in the picture frame).

Remember Port Patrick 22nd and Belfast 23rd of February.2006.

I did a film here in the Trossachs in which I was a Forensic scientist, a vigilante and a dog handler. Of course this was all extra work with no speaking parts. I became friends with one of the lead actors during the shoot. His name is David Bradley, and any Harry Potter fans will know that he plays Filch the Janitor in all the movies.He had just finished the Philosophers Stone when I met him. The film we did was called 'Just Another Love Song' and was premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival a few years back.
