We recently auditioned 4 new presenters for our presenter video service.
And, over the next few weeks, we’ll be interviewing each them and publishing the interviews on our industry leading blog.
This week it’s the turn of Abigail Law-Briggs.
Here’s what she had to say.
Q: How long have you been in the business?
A: I’ve actually been performing since the age of four, so around 20 years. I only started presenting last year though – my first gig being for a fashion video.
Q: What did you do before you started presenting?
A: Whilst I was at university i worked at a shoe shop – and occasionally, I would do hostessing for LFC.
Q: Apart from presenting for Studio Rossiter, what other work are you doing at the moment?
A: I’ve done quite a few auditions recently, things like a play at the Edinburgh Fringe, London panto, things like that.
Not so long ago I starred in a vampire movie called Brighter In Darkness. Hopefully a sequel will be being made. If it is then I’ll be in it.
Q: Have you experienced any setbacks whilst you’ve been in the industry?
A: I used to have trouble finding work in musical theatre because of my height. I’m quite a tall woman, and the directors weren’t looking for that.
But that was a good thing overall, because it made me go into acting and presenting.
Q: What do you like best about what you do?
A: I get to travel a lot and meet new people. I also learn a lot, having to constantly read up on new subjects.
And what I do changes from day-to-day – this is great for me because I love variety.
Q: What was the audition like?
A: It felt very professional. When I got there the set was already set up.
The people who work for Studio Rossiter were all very friendly. They gave me a changing room and allowed me to practice beforehand, which made me feel relaxed and enabled me to do a better ob.
Q: Do you think Studio Rossiter will be a good company to work for?
A: Definitely. Everybody there seems to be very nice, knowledgeable and professional. They seem like a good team – and I look forward to being a part of it.
