Snap, sugarplumfairy - my DS had the same news last week. I wonder if it's the same series? Best of luck to your DD for her recall!

I definitely think self-tapes are a learning curve. DS got nowhere with them for ages but has had several recalls from tapes in the last 6 months, so I think we must be getting better at them (finally!).

Oh Sugarplumfairy that is grand news, fingers crossed for your DD and yes, you absolutely do not mind (and in fact love quite a bit!) spending the money on travel if you know you have been noticed :)
I think these days so many are doing self-tapes first that you cannot fail to start getting just the same opportunities as if you went in.
Thankyou so much :) she said it went well and she had a lovely time so that's the main thing :) x

Lovely to meet you too - and still in awe of how far you travelled to be there! A great experience, and to get in that room was an achievement in itself for them both, regardless of the outcome.

Never a wasted opportunity even if not cast - it was a great experience for DS to be one of a small number recalled and to meet the director.

We're now looking forward to seeing sugarpplumfairy's DD play a great role :D

Oh congratulations Sugarplumfairy that is lovely to hear and gives hope to people wondering about self-tapes. Fredabloggs, hopefully next time your DS will be the one celebrating, it is hard when you get that close, we know that feeling xxx
