The toughest thing about being an actor is dealing with failure. Audition after audition where you lay yourself bare in front of a couple of strangers and a camera, only to walk out the door without ever hearing a thing. It's difficult to dispel the nagging self doubt that comes with

Don't wear any clothes that match EVER at fashion week. Street cool aims for a look akin to that petulant six year old on the tube whose exhausted mother allowed her to wear her Disney 'Frozen' dress over her dungarees because she wouldn't stop screaming.

My daughter wants to be an actress. Words that should strike fear into the heart of any right thinking parent. I've gently tried to discourage her from what I perceive as a harsh life, but she comes alive on stage and has held on to this ambition to the exclusion of other childhood dreams. Luckily my daughter is only seven and there is plenty of time for sense to prevail, but were she to continue on her path, what should she know?

I never gave much thought to sexism while growing up. After all, it was the 1990s and then the twenty-first century. But I have begun to notice sexism around me - not overt discrimination as such, more a tone in which women are spoken about, or just a person's awareness of someone's woman-ness.
