I’m applying for the unemployment benefit, but one of the little loop-holes is that I need to show that I’m actively looking for work. As I’m officially an actor
over here (i.e. I chalked up a huge student debt at Drama School), I have to get an Agent and new headshots to qualify for financial support as an out-of-work actor.
I’m pretty confident that I’m going to get the best representation – I may have been in London for a few years but my New Zealand Acting CV still has legs, and let’s face it, I have an ass that just won’t quit.
So I’m soon to be an actor again! Auditioning! And, maybe even... acting! (In between the writing - lots and lots of writing - can’t forget the writing). Either that or I’ll just sit on my beautiful tush and get paid the benefit. It’s a win / win situation.
