What the heck! I am in an M&S video looking like I belong in a Vermeer painting. They asked me to source 100kg of pinot noir grapes at a time when they had not even budded in the northern hemisphere or they went out of season in the southern. I called everywhere but in the end when I had to say, no can do, I found 100kg of some other wine grapes and we were able to shoot the commercial where I got to crush grapes with my hands and feet.

You can see it here, spot me if you can (haha!)
We shot in Limehouse, inside the beautiful decrepit interiors and home of the famous pub called The George Tavern. The Art Director was amazing, she had so many stunning props to create another world in another time. All I did was looking after grapes and my hands in costume. Had such a fun day. It was the first time I had worked with M&S which lead me to Adventures In Food.
