  • As you get a bit more mature, shall we say, and particularly if you're a woman the parts are definitely harder to come by, that's for sure. I think there's no use in sending yourself crazy over it. I know of some people who continually call producers up trying to get parts and sometimes they'll get them if they pester them enough. But I don't do that because if people think you're good enough then you will be good enough so if the phone rings then the phone rings - I'm just lucky that it often does.
