New Film Role for Amanda Barrie?


I spotted an interesting little Twitter titbit this morning. Urban Collective posted a tweet informing us that their client Amanda Barrie was out filming once again today with the hashtag #featurefilm. 

Amanda has had a very busy year following her self-imposed 'gap year'. We have seen her appear in the BBC's documentary The Real Marigold Hotel and More 4's The Baby Boomer's Guide to Growing Old. Amanda has also made acting appearances in the BBC's medical drama Holby City and ITV's sitcom Benidorm. Another interesting project has been an online series filmed in Israel called The Bar Mitzvah. 


A return to the big screen is an exciting next step for Amanda. Although featuring in several British films early on in her career, Amanda has spent most of her acting life on stage or television. Early film roles, aside from Carry On Cabby and Cleo, have included A Pair of Briefs with Joan Sims; Doctor in Distress with Dennis Price; Operation Bullshine with Dora Bryan; I've Gotta Horse with Billy Fury and the Disney comedy One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing with Joss Ackland. I wish Amanda had made more films back in the day, however with twenty years leading productions in the West End, it's understandable she didn't have the time.

So what could this new film be? According to Urban Collective, the film will also feature other renowned British actors. Intriguing! If anyone knows anything about the project, do get in touch! Of course if I hear any more about this new film, I'll blog it.
