Ionica Adriana Interview By Scott McGlynn

Ionica is a Romanian born, Yorkshire bred talent, who unlike many performers only started performing when she was 17, after missing an opportunity of being on ITV’s “Heartbeat” at the age of 8.

After a number of successful projects from ITV, Stage and working with Cheryl Cole I had to meet her and get a interview enjoy…

 

 

763339_5040265

Scott: When was the first time you realised i want to be an actress? 
Ionica: Oh god, not until i really left drama school! I got into drama school and people told me how lucky I was to get in and how many people would kill for that opportunity that i got so I thought, wow, this really is something to be treasured. I realised more when I stopped that actually, I don’t ever not want to do this.
Scott: Who was your idol growing up?
Ionica: People like Kathy Burke, Maxine Peake, Julie Walters, and Sarah Lancashire. I always felt that they were proud of who they were and where they came from, something really true and genuine. At a young age you don’t always why you know why you connect with people, but as you grown older you realise that affinity and relate it to your own truths. 
Scott: You been in some exciting project from Stella to Cheryl’s under the sun music video, Whats been a highlight so far?
Ionica: I did a horror film in Romania, though not one of my most well known projects, but one I certainly learnt the most. Filming away in a different country with very little money, a crew who don’t speak a word of English, in a Transylvanian forest and one generator certainly tests you in more ways than one! Each and every project I’ve done has been just brilliant and I’m utterly grateful to have worked on – I’ve been so lucky to have had the opportunity to experience, learn an grow from all.
Scott: How was it working with Cheryl? 
Ionica: Brilliant. Proper northern lass with a proper northern work ethic. 
Scott: You played Witch Blackweed in Jack and the Beanstalk, how was it? You were amazing! 
Ionica: Ah thank you! I was worried! Ha! Honestly I never thought I’d ever be able to deliver what was asked. First of all I’ve never seen a Panto, and second of all I’ve never done any professional theatre so taking a lead role was pretty daunting. I then found out the Lynne McGranger (Irene from Home and Away) played this exact same role a few years previously so I had a mini hear attack! I felt I’d never possibly fill the shoes of such great Actress but all the cast and creatives were so support and Lynne herself tweeted me so I felt in good hands! 
ionica
Scott: Which do you like the most TV acting or on stage? and why? 
Ionica: I never ever thought I’d want to do stage as I suffer hugely from stage fright and cry when I’m nervous so I really thought TV was the only way forward for me if I was to ever have a career but, after doing Jack and The Beanstalk, I really over came so much that I really reconsidered. I love TV and Film so I think I will always sway towards that but there is nothing like a live audience so I never say never! 
Scott: Who are you top 3 actor / actress crushes?
Ionica: Oh wow! I’ve never been asked that before! Haha! Like my private life I keep quiet about this! Hehe!
Scott: Whats your plans for 2016? Where can we be seeing you next? 
Ionica: I have just signed with a new Agent and the auditions have coming in thick and fast so who knows, however, you may see me pop up from time to time in a new ITV thriller that is coming out at the end of the year and I’ve been doing a lot of live performances, singing. I will be singing at a few more Charity Events through out the year but all being well you may see my mug on your screens some more!

Tommy Marz Interview By Scott McGlynn

Tommy Marz is an American band, That has stormed the music industry! After having success with a version of George Michael’s ‘Faith’ that spawned a video that went on to receive many views on YouTube and getting placements on Networks such as NBC and MTV! I caught up with Tommy for a Q&A enjoy…

 


Scott: You’ve been highly successful and working with some amazing people, Whats been your highlight so far?Tommy: Yeah, we have a great team here. Whitesmith Entertainment has taken really good care of us. So far, charting on the iTunes Top 30 Rock Albums Chart has been one of the biggest thrills.  Hearing from people on Twitter saying how much they like the record/songs is an unbelievable feeling.

Scott: You are more on the rock side of music, I love “Only Human” what category in music would you say you’re in? 
Tommy: Thank you!  Our newest album ‘Bringing Alpha’ is definitely rock and that’s the sound of the band.  But when I am doing some solo stuff like the song you mentioned ‘Only Human’, I feel like I take on a more Pop/Singer-songwriter approach.


Scott: You’re getting big in America, Have you ever been over in the UK? If not, have you got any plans to be coming over here soon? 
Tommy: We’ve never been to the UK but are totally looking forward to coming over there.  We have met many nice people on our social media accounts from the UK.


Scott: When growing up who was your idol / idols and why?
Tommy: So many to name but off the top of my head, probably the most impactful artists were Duran Duran, The Police and of course The Beatles.. and later groups like STP, Silverchair and Alice in Chains served as some of our biggest influences.


Scott: What’s your next track / album going to called?
Tommy: The next song we are going to release off of ‘Bringing Alpha’ is a song called ‘One Big Rush’.  It’s a total adrenaline song!  A new video for it is about to come out very soon as well.
Scott: How long did it take you to write and record your first album “Rival” 
Tommy:’Rival’ is very special to me because it was the first solo album I ever recorded but it took a long time.  The whole process was over a year whereas ‘Bringing Alpha’ took about six weeks start to finish.


Scott: What’s your thoughts on worldwide music shows like “The Voice” & “The X Factor”?
Tommy: I think they are a great platform to launch artists worldwide.  Without shows like them we would be missing out on some great talent we may have missed otherwise.  And honestly they are just so entertaining to watch.

 

Scott: What advice can you give artists that are just starting out and want to break the music industry?  Tommy: Keep writing and keep playing.  There can be so many obstacles in your way and all you can do is keep trying to better your craft, remain positive and don’t forget about the passion that made you start in the first place.  That last part I still tell myself everyday.  I cannot imagine a place where I’m not picking up my guitar and writing songs.

Scott –  You told us you’ve had surgery, What was the most painful and less painful you had done?

The least would Botox, it’s painless but has fantastic results. I go to a clinic called Mac Aesthetics. She treats many celebrities, including Geordie Shore!

Sam Stanley Interview with Scott McGlynn

Sam Stanley has become the first English rugby union player to come out last year, I caught up with Sam to see how life’s been after coming out, His career and much more…

 


Scott: How did you get involved in rugby? Was it something you knew you always wanted to do?

Sam: I had an uncle who played for New Zealand. I think all of his brothers, including my dad were going to try and get their kids into rugby in some way. I was 4 when I first got involved and haven’t looked back.

 

Scott: What advice would give someone that is wanting to get into rugby? 

Sam: I’ve had many memories over the years of playing and have met some wonderful people along the way. It is a great way to meet new people and the environment is very friendly. As with most things you’ll never know unless you try but trust me the memories that can be made last a life time, on and off the field.

 

Scott: What is your strict fitness routine preparing for a game? 

Sam: Throughout a match week there’d around 3 training session with possibly two intense session and the other to go through a captains run making sure everyone knows the plan for the opposition being faced. There’s a lot of weights and also recovery sessions so you’re not too tired come game day.

 

Scott: What is your favourite exercise thing to do? And why?

Sam: My favourite exercise in the gym is bench press as it works a number of muscles and is functional for rugby.

 

Scott: You come out last year, How was it? What was everyone’s reaction like?  

Sam: That’s correct. It’s been amazing for my state of mind and I’ve never been happier since having done so. The reaction from team mates, coaches and the public for that matter has been overwhelmingly supportive. I could never have imagined I’d be able to be myself and play rugby. It’s really is great!!

 

Scott: Did you find coming out made any change to you career?

Sam: I think it is really too soon to say. I’ve had a few serious injuries in the past that have halted my progression to really push on with my rugby and people know about them no matter how I’m playing. I think for coaches they don’t like to take risks on previously injured player especially with the run I’ve had. Last year wasn’t the best season for me as I just wasn’t being selected to play but I don’t think it has anything to do with me being gay. I hope!

 

Scott: Being a open gay guy myself, I brought out my first book earlier this year called “OUT” its about my true life story being gay, getting bullied in school and work places growing up. Did you ever experience anything like this?

Sam: Wow, Scott. Congratulations. I really kept myself to myself as a youngster growing up and although I had feelings different to my friends I made sure I put them aside and pretended to be something I’m not. Luckily I guess being a rugby player was seen as a macho thing to do so when you’re young people respect that. I was always nice to people and wouldn’t stand for people bullying others.

 

Scott: What will be your advice to anyone getting bullied right now? 

Sam: Tell someone with authority and please don’t keep anything like that to yourself. There are many people that will help you do something about it so find someone you trust will fight your corner because it should never be tolerated at any age.

 

Scott: What can we be expecting from you in 2016? 

Sam: I can’t believe we are half way through 2016 already. The first half for me wasn’t great and I found myself in a pretty toxic environment, which didn’t help my development as a rugby player at all. I’ll be getting my head down once the season kicks off and trying to work my way back up the ladder. I attended my first London Pride at the weekend and it’s great to attend events like this without having to look over my shoulder anymore. I’ve done a few talks here and there sharing my story to LGBT groups within companies, which has been a great experience. Hopefully in some way I’ve been able to help people.

Christopher Haul Interview With Scott McGlynn

Fellow Welshy Christopher Haul is a worldwide success performing to all audiences. From BoyBands to sole career he talk’s about his idols, experiences and touring.

 

CbFqbv3W0AAdHuR

 

Scott: You been in a few boybands, How was that experience?

 

Chris: So growing up in the 90’s was very inspiring because I was totally obsessed with the sort of bands that were huge at that time.  Backstreet boys, N’Sync, Boy Zone, Spice Girls, O’Town etc etc..  That made me think as a child ‘I want to do that’!  Being part of one was such good fun and it was an experience I will never forget.  Obviously it is so much different and can be a little lonely at times but if I am honest I am having more fun by myself.

 

Scott: Your a successful solo artist now touring the world, Is there much difference from being in a band and a solo artist? 

Chris: Yes absolutely, it can be sooo stressful being in a band because not only did we live together, have days off together, work, travel, gig, record it’s a 24hour thing.  When you are a in a band you are in a committed relationship.  Almost like a marriage, but with that you have to make sure that you are ready to go and your band mates.  If one person is stressed nervous or not focused then it really does have a knock on effect.  Where as being a soloist you only need to worry about what you are doing it is so much easier but harder when it comes to performing as you have to sing each song all the way through.  It’s an eye opener!

 

Scott: You been travelling a lot recently where’s been the best place you visited any why? 

Chris: Ohhh tricky question… More recently, I would say Russia (Moscow) was pretty cool.  Mainly because it was nothing like I expected it to be.  I thought it was going to be dull, scary, an unwelcoming place but all the horror stories you read on the news it was nothing like that. Great architecture, great food, the people were OK and I really enjoyed it.  
The other place I loved was Sri Lanka but that is mainly because of the tropical weather, beautiful beaches, food and amazing scenery! I felt the same about Phucket in Thailand similarly.

 

Scott: Have you got any summer gigs lines up, If so where can we see you?

Chris: Yes, I am performing at a lot of the Pride festivals in the UK my next ones are in particular order are Oxford, London North Wales, Liverpool, Bournemouth and Carlisle.

Christopher Haul Leicester Pride 2015 Photographs

 

Scott: Who’s been you idol growing up? 

Chris: I have always been fascinated by Michael Jackson, I always thought of him as a fictional character because his ability to perform, dance, sing is out of this world.  But I always loved the Spice Girls too.  I actually thought I was one at one point (didn’t we all) haha.

 

Scott: Can you remember the first single bought?

Chris: I always used to steal my older brother music, so they used to buy it so I didn’t have to.  My older brother Gavin used to buy almost every single on CD or Cassette each week.  I  think his love for music really rubbed off on me.  I think my first single that was bought for me was Whitney Houston ‘I will always love you’.  It’ my favorite song today!

 

Scott: How did you start off in the music industry?

Chris: I started off by moving to London and auditioning for bands.  I had that dream from a young age.  I had an interesting roller coaster of a ride in the band but I do think I learnt a lot about the industry.

 

Scott: What’s been your highlight so far?

Chris: My highlight so far has been performing at my own original music to audiences all over the world.  I haven’t released anything yet because I am taking my time but I feel like the best is yet to come!

 

Scott: If you could choose 3 people to duet with who would they be?

Chris: Bruno Mars, Adele (Imagine), Will-I-Am and I would love to duet with Rihanna that’s 4.

Jerrod Interview with Scott McGlynn

Jerrod a muti talent American artist, Singing, Piano, Drums the lot! The friendliest people i interviewed! We chatting about growing up, music, Orlando!

 

f1032b24-b30f-4e79-8957-d6356b1f3e56

 

Scott: When was the moment you thought to yourself music is what i want to

do? 

Jerrod: I always loved music. I’ve been playing drums since I was 2 years

old and it was passion of mine. I wanted to be a professional

drummer one day, but when I got older singing seemed a lot more

appealing to other people so I went with that. I was always shy to

sing and play drums but I love making people happy with music and

performing so I started doing covers of songs and put them on a cd

and started giving them to my friends.

 

Scott: Your talented guy you learnt muti things like drums, guitar, bass guitar and

piano. What do you like playing most and why? 

Jerrod: Drums is my favorite out of them all, but I really love the piano as well.

 

Scott: You done some awesome covers, What your number 1 and why?

Jerrod: Wow…umm my favorite probably would have to be a change is gonna

come by sam cooke. I love sam cooke and was raised on his music so when I did

his cover I thought it would be just another one on youtube but the views spiked

over night and kept growing and that ended up being my most viewed video. My

new favorite would probably be lay me down by sam cooke. I played the piano

and sang it live one day and I loved it.

 

Scott: You new track “Diamond” is amazing! I loved it hearing it on soundcloud, Tell me about it…

Jerrod: Diamond was a song my manager wrote for me and when I heard it I

immediately fell in love with it. I did it a couple of times and the first few times, my

manager wanted more out of me. I did again late one night and it just clicked. I

love it

 

Scott: Have you got any plans coming to the UK in 2016? 

Jerrod: I’ve always wanted to go, and I couldn’t think of a better way to do it then

to visit and share my gifts and talents with the UK! If they’ll have me of course.

 

Scott: Shows such as “The Voice” & “The X Factor” creates some great talent, Have

you ever thought about doing any of these shows?

Jerrod: Absolutely. I think about it almost everyday HA I was just talking to one of

my friends the other day and they were telling me I should go and try it. I would

love to work with the amazing artist on the show to grow and collaborate with

them. It would be a great experience

 

Scott: For your US fans, Will you be performing anywhere this year we can share

with them?

Jerrod: I plan to but I’ll keep that a secret and surprise you guys one day !

 

Scott: I brought out my first book earlier this year called “OUT” worldwide. Its about

my true life story being gay, getting bullied in school and work places growing up.

Did you ever experience anything like this?

 

Jerrod: Fortunately I never experienced that life and I always hated to see it. Even

growing up in a christian based school, I still saw some horrible things go on, but

I was the type of person to get along with everyone. I wouldn’t have cliques and

not talk to everyone. I was cool with everyone and hoped they were cool with me.

 

Scott: All our hearts go out to Orlando worldwide! What’s your thought on this?

Jerrod: Its really a tragedy. I did a song called “Change the World” and it caters to

situations like this. You should take a listen to it and share it because the world

needs a change, and with my music I hope to give life, peace, positvity, with

every lyric I write and sing. I want people to love each other no matter what their

political constituancy is or their race or gender. We are all people and we can all

make that change. Michael Jackson said it best, “if you want to make the world, a

better place, take a look at yourself, and make that change!” and I firmly believe

that.

 

Scott: It was amazing speaking with you Jerrod, Last thing what is your top 3 items

you can not live without?

Jerrod: Thank you so much for having me! My top 3 things I cant live without first

and foremost is God. He is the one that makes everything possible for me. 2. My

family. I will always need them and will be there to support them and last but not

least my girlfriend. Shes been here for me since we were in the 4 th grade. Most of

the songs I do and write are for her and I want everyone to have someone like

her, so yes she is definitely something AND someone I cant live without.

Helen Lederer interview with Scott McGlynn

Being a fan of Helen’s from the first time I saw her in Ab Fab, I was honored to have a interview with her, She is amazing, talented, funny woman!  I love her! 

 

175808639-df5f02a7-289c-4432-be90-5bfe2f3c1c80_885x560_1433931681720

 

Scott; We seen you in some amazing projects, Before we get to that, What made you want to become a actress?

Helen; I always seemed to want to devise plays as a child and somehow  ended up being the MC for a circus show. Maybe this was a start to being a stand-up comic. I was also an elf for a Christmas show. I loved being hysterical and comedy performing was a step towards that.

 

Scott; Most people know you from Ab Fab, How did all that come about your audition process etc? 

Helen; Well I was around on the stand up circuit in the 80’s and although Jennifer and dawn were 3 years ahead of me..they knew my work and it sort of stemmed from  there. At first Jennifer liked to have people she knew around her. And then it grew and grew and grew!

 

Scott; I am very EXCITED for the Ab Fab – Movie! What was it like getting all back together? Did it feel you never left the AF family?

Helen; It was a laugh as ever.. we are older and some of us wiser (not moi) but the affection is still there -very proud to be invited back especially as my role is small but fun.

 

Scott; Your one of my favourite comedians, Does it just come naturally to you being funny? 

Helen; I  have always wanted to laugh…and it has got me into trouble..there’s always one in every class isn’t there.. I was fat and asthmatic  as well which helped..

 

Scott; I’m into my comedy acting & being funny, If i wanted to join a comedy sketch show / series what would be your tips? 

Helen; Be yourself. Authenticity is the best.. although lots of people choose copying and bossy agents to get ahead. Guess which one I favour ?

 

Scott; You had some amazing feedback from you novel “Losing It” being a author myself to my autobiographical  story “OUT” whats your experience like being a author? 

Helen; I LOVE writing..it brings peace when it goes well, and stress when it doesn’t…keep at it write every day and watch out for my next book called  ‘HAVING IT’

 

Screen-Shot-2015-11-19-at-16-23-22-400x0x0

 

Scott; You made the word “MId-Lit” for your book, Have you copy right this yet? 🙂
