“Can you sound like David Morrissey? Except not a man?”

The pool of life.

“Hey Emma! Can you sound like David Morrissey? Except not a man?”

David Morrissey is one of my favourite actors. There’s a thundering rage inside him; like he’s the kind of man who wants to tear down a building from the inside. His voice thrums with passion, full of the fury of a working class hero, pulsing with the life blood of Liverpool.

Reader, it’s a tall order to match him.

Especially when you’re a Manc woman.

The job was all about the city and its place in the world. The writing was beautiful – moving, honest, powerful. I wanted to do it justice.

My very first professional theatre performance was in Liverpool and I utterly and completely fell in love with the city. (I played the lead in Jonathan Harvey’s first play ‘The Cherry Blossom Tree’ at the tender age of 16). Liverpool has a special meaning for me.

So have a listen. This audio is best experienced looking out across the city of Liverpool, at the River Mersey and the hulking Welsh hills beyond.

Enjoy.

one of the most bizarre ads i’ve ever voiced

It’s hard to write music with your heart hanging out.
