We recently caught up with Scarlet Grace to find out what she’s been up to since her interview with us last year. Having had a busy year working in the industry, Scarlet has now made her directorial debut with the short film GUILT, which she also wrote and was screened at Cannes.
It’s been such a manic year since I had my interview with TresA Magazine. So much has happened…
Last February, I signed with my US agent and spent six weeks in NYC for Pilot Season, which I loved every minute of. I attended lots of castings whilst in New York and had a screen test at the ABC Studios which was a great experience. My UK agents also set up meetings with casting directors whilst I was there, which was fantastic and I got to explore NYC when I wasn’t studying or learning script sides. Absolutely loved my time there.🗽It will always have a special place in my heart.
In June, I travelled to LA to sign with my new management company, Untitled Entertainment in Beverly Hills. My managers, Stephanie and Jen are just the loveliest ladies I have ever met and I’m so grateful for their support and advice going forward in my career. The trip was awesome and I even managed to fit in some sightseeing of the Hollywood sign and Rodeo Drive!
In December, Holmes and Watson, my first feature film was released. I played the role of Pickle, supporting role to Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. I was so excited for the release, it had been a long wait as we filmed it back in 2017 so I was itching to watch it and we went to Sony Entertainment in Soho and watched the movie with Rob Brydon which was 🙌.
Since the film release I have been on lots of castings and working hard with my UK and US agents and have since voiced Paddington 2, worked on a short film, One Small Pixel, a few voiceovers and most recently, I wrote, filmed and directed my first short film called GUILT. I was beyond excited when GUILT was chosen out of hundreds to be screened in Cannes at That Film Festival. I flew out there for literally 24 hours! Watched my film be screened and stood up in front of many industry professionals and film investors to talk about my film and answer Q&As!! It was pretty surreal and something I will never forget. What an opportunity.
I have had an exciting year but I have also had to work even harder as I’ve had all my GCSEs in the last two months so in-between all of the exciting things happening, I’ve been cramming in revision also! I was also so happy to hear that after a long audition at ArtsEd, I had been offered a place on their sixth form course studying A Levels in Acting & Film Studies. The competition was high and I am very fortunate to have been offered a place. I can’t wait to start in September.
Now I have one week left of exams and then I’m finished! I have lots of parties planned with my friends and my prom to look forward to. I’ve also had some really exciting castings in the last few weeks and I’m off to Florida first and then LA, so lots to look forward to!
