the latest award & special screening!

June 2019 – Update …

This new film from Pixel Revolution is already scooping up international awards! It’s currently on release – at special screenings in the Midlands and film festivals around the world.

There was a special Charity Screening of the film in aid of WBA Foundation on the BIG screen at West Bromwich Albion Football Ground on WEDNESDAY 12 JUNE.

I am delighted to be in the cast of such an inspiring short drama. It tells the real-life story of Brumie legend – blind marathon runner, Dave Heeley and I play the role of Dave’s mum when he is a boy and growing up. It is a painful time for the family as they make the discovery that Dave is slowly going blind. However, in spite of his difficulties, Dave overcomes them all to complete one of the toughest marathons in the world. He takes on the challenge of The Sevens – running seven marathons on seven continents in seven days. A remarkable achievement.

So pround of my ‘son’! Here I am with the ‘real-life’ Dave at the Screening

Producer Nigel Davey spent tireless months funding for this film, which has already attracted a lot of attention in the media.

Watch the trailer above and you’ll get a flavour of the story. You will also see me in a number of the early scenes, in some rather fetching dresses from the 1970’s!

It was also exciting to be invited to the premiere at Birmingham REP on 1st February, 2019.

The auditorium was packed and it was a great chance to meet other cast members, and the inspirational Dave Heeley himself.

And here are some of the cast and crew, hugging the media wall. It was fun to see actors Carl Wharton, and Oliver Phelps (from the Harry Potter films) again…as well as the award-winning directors of the film, Ian & Dominic Higgins.
