25th April 2018 – Last week Emily from 7J was in a London TV studio filming the second part of a National Geographic series on international cultures. Each filming session lasts anywhere from half an hour to two hours, with Emily talking to camera in front of a green screen. Her role in the programme is to play the part of “Emilia” as she discusses Italian culture. The programme aims to provide children with as an introduction to the country.
Emily had to audition for the role and was chosen because of her ability to put on an excellent Italian accent. She says it was a great help to her that her parents are both from Sardinia and she therefore visits the island every summer. “The script is really interesting”, she said, “and I’ve learned even more about Italian culture myself”. She really enjoys her role and is looking forward to filming the rest of the series.
