  My Diary: Actor
Updated 05 September 2002, 11.33
Chris got his lucky break playing 'Gavroche' in Les Miserables
Hi everyone, my name's Chris, I'm 14 and I'm an actor.

In 1998 I got my first big break playing Gavroche in the touring West End production of Les Miserables.

Since then I've played many roles on TV and the stage and want to make acting my career.

This is my diary for July.

Wednesday 17 July
Hi everyone, remember the two auditions I had? Well unfortunately I didn't get any of them because I was too tall!

Today has been somewhat eventful. We finished the first block of shooting for Burn It, but better still - I had my first ever screen kiss! Or at least - I nearly did.

The girl I was meant to kiss I've fancied for more than a year and she's absolutely GORGEOUS!

But then the director decided that I was too tall to kiss her - GUTTED!! Worse still, she ended up kissing my best mate James instead :-(


Friday 26 July
Yesterday I had an audition for a film. The audition was at a posh hotel in Leeds and the lady who auditioned me was really cool so I wasn't nervous at all.

But yet again my height let me down - "You're just too tall", they said.

My hair seems to be getting quite long too, so I hope that won't count against me with future auditions!

Come back next month to find out how I fit the acting round my new school year.

Speak soon :-)
