If I didn't become a teacher, my back up career would have been Acting. Drama was one of my favourite subjects at school. I performed in school plays/productions from a young age (I think I was 7-8). In my last year at primary school, I was fortunate to play Joseph in the musical - Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It was such an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it. At high school I also played one of the main characters - Koranauku - in Kerry Lynch's Dream Stalker (now know as Dream Seer). I loved acting and was top of my class, scoring highest achievement - something I am very proud of.
So when this week's topic for #TuesdayTen came up: 10 Movies or TV shows I wish were my Life...I thought about the shows I love watching or have watched in my lifetime and have come up with "10 TV Shows I Want To Star In" instead - that is, if I were an actress/actor....
1. Shortland Street
Shortland Street is a medical drama. Everyone either works at the hospital "Shortland Street" or over at "The IV" (bar). There is a lot of drama! Family feuds, Relationships, Weddings, Babies, Deaths, and the odd explosion. It also focuses on relevant events happening in and around our country. I tune in every night Monday-Friday! There have been some story-lines that I can relate to or have friends and family that do. It would be a dream come true if I got to walk on the set, even just walking through the corridors of the hospital would be pretty cool, or maybe be an ED Doctor or nurse.
2. Home and Away
Sun, Surf & Pizza - Need I say more!
Home and Away is an Australian drama. It is played over here (in New Zealand) every night Monday-Friday and it is a show that I have been watching it for over 15 years! Filled with lots of drama, it keeps me coming back for more. It would be super cool to visit the beach where they film the show...in fact I might have to put it on my bucket list!
3. Gilmore Girls
I LOVED Gilmore Girls! I used to watch it religiously...The relationship between Lorelai and Rory is one that I want to have with my daughter (without the copious amounts of coffee consumption). When I was younger, I definitely wanted to be like Rory - have an awesome relationship with my Mum and I am happy to say that I do...I just hope that my relationship with my daughter is just as close when she hits her teenage years! (Give me strength). It would be great to hang out with the Gilmore Girls in Stars Hollow even just for a day. Go to 'Luke's Diner" for coffee and pancakes.
4. The XFactor
I know you have to be some-what famous or in the biz to be a judge on XFactor - however, if given the chance, it would be a pretty amazing opportunity, don't you think?
5. The Block
I love reality shows like The Block. They are very inspiring - it makes you want to knock a few walls down and/or go shopping for cushions, copper lamps and massive art work that costs an arm and leg. If my partner and I entered, I would definitely be the shopper - I'll be good at finding a bargain that's for sure. I'm not scared of a bit of hard labour either...we are hoping to find a house that we can do-up, so we will be having our own version of The Block, minus the cameras and thousands of dollars to spend!
6. Grey's Anatomy
Action-packed drama every week - what's not to love! The Doctors at Seattle Grace love to live life to the fullest and I am with them every step of the way! How cool would it be to walk the corridors of Seattle Grace and rub shoulders with 'Meredith' and 'McDreamy'. I'm sure Meredith wouldn't mind ANOTHER half-sister!
Ellen ROCKS!! Being on her show, even just as an audience member would blow my mind! She busts a move, has the funniest things to say, interviews the coolest people (famous and non-famous) and gives away some pretty awesome prizes! It would be amazing to be in her presence.
8. Dawson's Creek
I used to tune in with this awesome foursome after school every day! So much drama in one little township - it would have been cool to be a part of it! I laugh when I watch old episodes of Dawson's Creek...it brings back a lot of memories of my teenage years, although I didn't creep into boys bedroom windows!
9. The Big Bang Theory
10. E! Entertainment Television
I would love to be an E! Presenter - especially on the Red Carpet - meeting all the Stars! I even dressed up as one at a "Night At The Oscars" theme night! It was a lot of fun interviewing people as they walked in the door and onto our 'Red Carpet' - move over Giuliana Rancic! (no scratch that, she is amaze-balls) - I can be her co-host!
If you got the chance to STAR in your favourite TV Show - What would it be?
