Last week I spent a fun couple of days working on short film Silver for the BFI Film Academy in conjunction with the NFTS.  The academy takes the most promising 16 to 19 year olds in the country who work alongside industry professionals to learn about film-making.

Silver tells the story of a family with a newly adopted son (played by Shanu Hazzan), in which I play the mother, with the brilliant Gary Beadle taking the role of the father. Silver was directed by Maisie Buck ... a name to look out for in the future.
