Sunday 29 December
I've finished at the panto. It's been quite tiring, but I knew lots of the people involved, so it was a lot of fun.
Everyone was great for a laugh.
I didn't have to perform every day fortunately. The panto people had three sets of actors so out of 21 shows, I only worked seven.
Even so, it was still tiring.
In all, I did three evening shows. They were a lot more fun, because the audiences participated much more than during the daytime shows.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. I'm hoping to do panto again this Christmas, but I'm not bothered about which one I do. They're all quite similar and good fun.
One thing which was a shame: we got my granddad a ticket to see Leeds United play for Christmas and then the next day I won a ticket to the same match.
I was really excited, until I realised that it was on one of the days I was performing. I was really disappointed, but there was nothing I could do.
Thinking about it, that's really the first time I have been inconvenienced through my acting. Oh well.

I found out about an audition today for a part in a film that would last nine months. It would pretty much mean risking my GCSEs, which I really don't want.
Sometimes you just have to make tough decisions. I love acting and performing, but if things don't work out, you've got to have something to fall back on.
Tuesday 28th January
Right now, I'm enjoying my time off. It was a weird, fun Christmas. The panto made it very magical, but I'm getting more time with my mates now.
I'm waiting to hear about auditions mostly now. And checking the telly.
Last May, I acted in ITV's the Royal, which is a spin-off from HeartBeat. They filmed most of my scenes in an old hospital and the strange thing is, they used the ward where I was born for those scenes.
I'm acting in the room I was born in!
Keep an eye out for the new BBC3 channel, last September, I acted in Burn It!, which is going to be one of the first programmes on the new channel.
Well, that's it for now.
Speak soon :-)
