Playing a Cardiologist in ‘Mothers Heart’

As an actress, I get the wonderful chance to be a storyteller. Whether it is part of the fabulous Bunker post -apocalyptic morning radio show podcast series that I currently doing or telling a story via song or film it is always this part I love the most, the stepping into other people’s shoes and hearts. Last weekend I got to tell a truly wonderful true story. Director Diego Barrios has made a short film of an experience that his mother, a cardiologist in Brazi,l  had. The fact I got to play his mum was slightly nerve-racking, especially as she keeps referring to the film as ‘my film’ apparently. I got tuition by an actual cardiologist in using the ECG Cardiogram machine etc (clue: the heart isn’t exactly where I thought it was!) and got to work with a great cast and crew.

I won’t give you any spoilers but I did end up singing  ‘Listen To Your Heart’ by Roxette around the house for the next few days!

Here are a few pictures from the weekend’s shoot and an on-set Vine 😉
