On the way to acting class, for the first time since I moved to London, I got off at Liverpool Street Station instead of Shoreditch High Street. I love the vibes in East London, and it’s funny to see how the scenery changes as you walk from fancy shops to more quirky ones, from one neighbourhood to the other. Trendy cafes, vintage stores, the modern architecture blends with the old one, and then as you walk towards Brick Lane, you get the more industrial feels. As I’ve never been in that area on a Sunday, I was in for a surprise. The streets were buzzing with some very talented street musicians and performers – and some less talented ones too. Market stalls everywhere, colourful fruits and veg, cool clothing and art. To me, this is like a blend of New York and Barcelona.
Anyway, to the point. I have been taking a few drop-in acting classes on Brick Lane, at the Actors Door Studio. Today we had a screen acting class to practice our on-camera skills.
