I did a wonderful rehearsed reading two weeks ago with director Colin Blumenau of Theatre Royal Bury St. Edmonds. We did "Rory O'More" and I played the leading lady, 'Kathleen'. It was great fun and the cast were a lovely bunch.
I finished shooting BBC's Doctors last week, in Birmingham. It was great fun and I was put up in a hotel for three days; sweet.
On Monday 26th, I played a homeless teenager in BBH's promo for Centrepoint Charity, directed by Peter Montgomery. It was such a wonderful, challenging, brilliant shoot. I learned so much from it and felt I really met the challenge of playing a homeless teenager very well.
Last Saturday (01/12/2012), I played a London teenager again. This time it was for the Directors Lab UK. I played the lead, 15 year old Alex in a feature film called "Undone". It is directed by Stefan Stuckert and written by Carole Budgen. It is in the development phase and they will use what they shot as a promo for the film.
My name is Maureen O' Connell but everyone calls me "Mo". I'm an Irish actress. I write and make films also. I am the author of all poetry and creative writing on this blog and the copyright of which is owned by me- unless otherwise stated. I've just graduated with a BA from the 3 year Acting Course at RADA, London. Have a gander round the website at your leisure! Cheers, Mo
