I was an extra in The Days of Hope
1 March 2006 | by (Gibraltar) – See all my reviews

I was an extra in the Days of Hope as a school child in Langley Park where it was filmed and would dearly love to see a copy of the drama, which is only available now to schools and colleges.Being so young at the time I have very fond memories of taking part, queuing up to be kitted out in the period costume at the make shift costume department on location at the local youth centre. Waiting around in the rain for the weather to clear for shooting, enjoying the black leather boots and scruffy brown dress and shawl.I would love to see it now and follow the plot, which I was too young to appreciate at the time and to try to recognise fellow school mates who sadly I have now lost touch with.
