This is my second piece of exciting news.

On Thursday night / Friday morning, I met Natalie Portman.

Well, I didn’t exactly talk to her and she probably didn’t notice me at all, but….

I was an extra in a film that she’s directing and starring in. I got into it through my folk dancing group. They said they wanted dancers, but in the end there were too many people to be able to dance properly.

We were there – outdoors – from 5 pm to 5 am (except while we were eating). I had to wear a thin skirt, tights and open shoes, and I was freezing. We took part in two scenes, which were filmed several times.

It was quite an experience, although not one I’d like go through very often!
