As mentioned below, I agreed to appear in Jacob's short film, Don't Let Go. Well time flies, and the film is now completed, and recently received its Premiere where it seemed to be very well received.
You can see the trailer here in my video section, together with my look behind the scenes during rehearsals - I'm really pleased with the finished film - grab a look - I hope you like it.
The films website is here Don't Let Go where you can see more of the cast and crew interviews
I've just agreed to appear in a student film directed by Jacob William who I met on a cruise last year, he was the cocktail pianist, we got friendly and he gave all the old ladies the impression that we had something going - that was very flattering for me, but as he is only 26, I don't know what that did for his reputation!
He's now doing an M.A. in Musical Writing and this is the end of his course. The film is called 'Don't Let Go', and I, being tone deaf, have been cast as a reggae singing grandmother.
Having spent many years talking on the various cruise lines, I've extended this into after dinner speaking - people seems to enjoy 'A Chat with Pearl' and I'm enjoying it too!
I'm now available for weddings, funerals, and Barmitzvahs :) My talk - ' A Jewish Mother in the Media' seems to go down well - I wonder why - is it the voice of experience ? :)

On a serious note my great friend Jean, Lynda Baron, who Summer Wine fans might remember as 'Lily Bless Her' in the Summer Wine feature, 'Getting Sam Home', and Anne Charleston who of course was Madge in Neighbours, let the Summer Wine flow - unfortunately I was on a beach miles away or would have loved to join them

Something is afoot - time for Pearl to do some investigating.....
My friends at Electric Sofa hosted a very special lunch, that saw me, Jean Fergusson, Robert Fyfe, and Burt Kwouk reunited with Last of the Summer Wine writer Roy Clarke, and producer Alan J W Bell.
We had a fantastic afternoon, it was great to catch up with everyone, we really felt like we were at home on the set, just waiting for Alan to say 'turn-over', and the food was amazing - what was it all in aid of - well I could tell you, but I'd have to kill you - as they say - watch this space... !!!!
