Not an actor
26 March 2013 | by thedave82See all my reviews

I actually worked on this show rigging his house with the hidden cameras and I can assure you he is not an actor just an ordinary dude who didn't know what hit him. I watched it a while ago and I felt that the pyro of the meteors landing while he was on the bus and the scenes at the base weren't convincing me at all, but if I put myself in his shoes I can see why. All of the subliminal stuff on the radio and the BBC news feed about a meteor approaching, his hacked phone telling him the same and of course being hypnotized by Derren is more than enough to suspend his belief and make it real to him. I really enjoyed watching the show and the rest of Derren Browns stuff. Our reality is only what we take in with our senses and how we perceive those events if you change enough of those perceptions in your surroundings then you have a new reality. Quite an accomplishment kudos to the producers for making it happen it can't have been easy. Dave
