Dad (Mark) said I could come re-enacting one day back in 2003. I
have been coming to events since then. I like travelling to other
parts of the country where we do our events, as long as the journey is
not too long.
For years I
re-enacted as a 1940s schoolgirl. I used to like the dresses they wore many years ago -
but when the weather was cold and wet I found this distressingly
uncomfortable. Often I took part in the 1940s fashion show that
we did. However, since 2012 I have been doing Women's Land Army and I have a
collection of animals including a pig, a chicken, chicks, a lamb, a guinea
pig and a mouse which small children love looking at.
At events, we stay in tents and often have to cook
our own food. I like the food we eat when camping - stir frys with
quorn are my favourite!
I like the
fact that other families bring their children to our events. In
the evenings, when the public have gone home, we play in the fields with
have also done some filming for television and films. Dad has been on lots
of films and television documentaries. I got to go with him in 2010
when we worked for the BBC on a film called "Eric and Ernie" about the
famous comedians Morecambe and Wise. I was one of the evacuees
in the bomb shelter in London, and we got to perform with the famous
comedienne/actress Victoria Wood. In 2014 I was in a number of
films: I play a French Resistance girl in the film "Allies" where I did
a scene with Julian Ovenden from "Downton
Abbey", and Edmund Kingsley who is the son of famous actor Ben Kingsley;
I was also in the film "Marvellous" starring Toby Jones; and in the TV
documentary "Nazi Death Camp: the Great Escape" I played one of the
prisoners in the infamous Sobibor Concentration Camp.
