Hi, my name is Fraser Long. I'm 17 years old and from Adelaide Australia, a place far away from the rest of the world. I'm going to be an actor and i'm currently attempting to get in all the good acting schools here in Australia so I can train my acting skills. Deep down inside I actually legit hope I one day find myself being able to work with Shane Meadows or the other amazing actors who have worked in his films before.
I love the Shane Meadows films I have seen, and i'm a huge fan. I love This is England and the miniseries that followed it. It's great story telling, and the actors are very talented. What I love most about Shane Meadows films is the use of improvised dialogue. I love it so much, as it makes the dialogue and emotions seem so much more real and natrual as opposed to it being structured like a script. When I first watched 'This is England' I was blown away from how real the film felt as a result of the improvised dialogue and great acting. All the films get that same result. Dead Man's Shoes was a very intense film because it felt like I was watching real people get hunt down by this man.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to This is England '90. The final episode of This is England '88 had me in tears. Trust me, it's hard to get me in full on tears when watching a film. My eyes can water, but it's hard to get the tears flowing. The acting between Joe Gilgun and Vicky McClure was amazing and very emotional. Their emotions felt so raw and truthful, and both of them were able to stay so well in character. Even before that, the scene between Woody and Milky just felt so real.
