I'm ready for my close-up..on TV!!!


Celebrating...

Hello folks - so, I have some BIG NEWS...

Have you ever fancied the idea of being on television? Well, not you, yourself, but having your life story told on television and having someone play you on-screen? Who would you cast to play you? It's difficult to choose, isn't it?



I don’t know who I’d cast as me, but it looks like I’m going to have the chance to give it some thought, because, guess what…someone wants to put my life on TV!



Yes, I know it sounds unlikely, but – apparently – all my adventures, travelling the world and solving puzzling mysteries, would make a good TV series, they say. So that’s what they’re going to do. Each of my journeys will become a 90 minute movie on television, and I am so excited about it. And nervous. I mean, I don’t think I’m anything special, but…well, who am I to argue?

Isn't this clever - a passport to reflect the fact I am both Welsh and Canadian!


As for who should portray me, and who should portray Bud…now that’s something I’ll have to think long and hard about. To play me? Well, she’d have to be the right age (in her late forties), far-from-emaciated (oh my word – how many women on screen can you say that about?), and Welsh…with a Canadian twang in her accent now and again.



And Bud? Well, in his fifties, Canadian, and good looking. My idea of good looking, anyway. And both the actors should have that chemistry Bud and I have in real life…so I hope they’re good at their jobs (no off-screen shenanigans!).

There's even a logo...that looks like a passport stamp on passport paper!
I don’t know when it will all happen, of course, because this pandemic has knocked the film industry for six, so it’ll be a while, I should think. Maybe even years. But the company that will be doing it is very good at what they do, so I know the project is in safe hands. They’re called Free@Last TV, and they’re the people who have put those books by MC Beaton featuring Agatha Raisin on ACORN TV; I do enjoy those programmes so much – they look sumptuous, and really make me laugh.



So, who do you think should play me? What about Bud? I’m taking all suggestions right now! And keep your eyes peeled, because I’ll make sure I keep you up to date with progress.

  5. That's so exciting! I'm not good at picking roles, probably because I never know the current popular stars. But it will be so fun to have a movie based on this. Congrats!

  13. Congratulations, Cathy and Cait! How thrilling this is going to be! I have no idea who should be chosen for the star roles, but since the same people who are doing Agatha Raisin are doing it, it should be perfect.
