Amanda’s in charge
actress who plays Casualty’s connie takes on new role behind the camera
Casualty star amanda Mealing has stepped behind the camera to direct this saturday’s Halloween- themed episode.
the 49-year-old, who plays connie Beauchamp, says that she caught the directing bug as a child actress. ‘My first job at six years old was a Julie andrews special with her husband Blake edwards [who directed the Pink Panther movies and Breakfast at Tiffany’s] and i was fascinated and inspired,’ she says.
‘so with every director and crew i’ve worked with over the years, i’ve collected little bits of information. now i feel that it’s time to put that knowledge and experience into practice.’
