Movie set extra! Not fair city... thank goodness!

So this week I had two days as a movie extra, one on a film called "Love, Rosie" and then on tuesday was another day on Fair City.

Now you know the deal by now on Fair City so I won't bore you with that! But on monday I got to spend the day in beautiful Enniskerry in Wicklow on the set of Lily Collins' new movie "Love, Rosie", based on a book by Cecelia Ahern.

Turns out, I've actually read that book! I hadn't known that until a friend I met on set started talking about the plot, and then it all slowly started coming back to me! So anyway, even though I did not sign any NDA form, I'm not really supposed to tell you what happened or what we shot on Monday... so sadly, I won't!

But I can tell you I had to wear all black for one seen and very summery formal outfit for another scene! It was a lovely day with a bit of wind and as the evening drew on it just got colder and colder. Sadly for the actors, the scenes were set during spring and so that's not good news when you're in a dress and freezing cold on the side of a hill in Wicklow! Luckily the wonderful crew provided blankets and I know the mains had some water bottles and heavy jackets available too.

Although I never met any of the mains personally, they were all extremely wonderful on set. Christian Cooke was very chatty with some extras, and Sam Clafin was quite humorous, practically falling around the place. Lily looks beautiful in real life, petit, pale, perfect, like a doll! and Jaime Winestone looked fantastic in her character hair and make up!

Overall this looks to be a very cute little film and it was such a pleasure working with everyone on set. I recognised a few people in costume and hair from Titanic Blood and Steel, as well as the Jimi Hendrix film too! It's always nice to see familiar faces and of course I'm very happy to see them all working hard!

I think I definitely want to do some work experience behind the scenes too! I would love to be an AD or an assistant producer! I'll definitely have to look into that one! any advice!? or do any of your readers have similar desires?!

Thanks for reading!

Peach out!


  1. Hi there. Loved your rerpot. I am a big christian cooke fan, he is so dreamy. Did you get to chat with him too and was he friendly with female extras or male?

  2. hello Sarah. No unfortunately, where I was in relation to Cooke was a couple of meters away so we never met or spoke. but there was a very young girl of about 7 on set, and from where I was I could see him really interact with her, and he was very lovely and sweet with her. I believe he did interact somewhat with the extras he was standing with... sadly i wasn't one of them! :)
