Thanks for popping by. It turns out that B.A.B.E. is actually over 10 years old now… can you believe it. Wayyy back when I (Angela Peters – that lady above smiling into the camera dreaming of eating a donut once again…I’m gluten free you see) decided to start a mentoring business for actors who couldn’t […]


self taping with kids

Recently I wrote my first article for the UK’s number one casting site, Spotlight, on all things self taping with children. Have you been freaking out about having to do self tapes while you have kids under the age of 3 in the house? Yes, I did too.

8 Commandments of a Successful Headshot Session – with Backstage

I had the most wonderful headshot session this year with a woman I have recommended to about a 1000 actors over the years. This is the second time I’ve booked in with her! Her name is Jennie Scott and she is a London based headshot photographer. And no, she doesn’t give me commission for telling […]

The greatest gift of all

I always wanted to be Wonder Woman growing up. It’s no secret. All of my mates are aware that I own the costume, and some of my friends have even let me dress as Wonder Woman for parties when it didn’t even fit the ‘dress up theme’ (thanks Sarah!). And I like to think that, like Wonder Woman, each […]

Spread your crap out ladies

Yep, spread it out and don on your diva garments like the Hollywood wannabees you are. It’s one of my pet peeves and it happened again in a casting last week. I was waiting quietly for my turn to be called in, and had put my handbag underneath the seat and filled out the clipboard […]

How to go from Auditions to offer

I’ve spoken about Emily Grace before. I have even done a webinar with her once which was a tonne of fun. And so I’m back to share her latest news because I really rate Emily. But firstly, the questions Emily wants you to answer are – Are you frustrated by the audition process? Do you […]

Do I stay or do I go?

What a brilliant song! What a brilliant thought. It’s that time of the year when everyone is talking about TV pilots, and mates are prepping for LA. I’ve been working on my American accent daily, and finishing off some new showreel scenes, and excitement is in the air. I mean it’s nearly Spring right… well […]

Please stop talking

This is the wonderful moment where you tell me EVERYTHING about yourself and I listen. I sit patiently and I nod at the appropriate times and I listen to whatever the f&@% you are saying about yourself because I can hardly even remember what you just said because it’s been so long since I’ve taken […]

Acting help needed? Just ask

Yes it’s as simple as that really. Just Ask. What? You just ask for what you want? Yes you absolutely do! When faced with a challenge, chances are you will respond in one of two ways – procrastinate or jump right in and go for it. Sadly, more often than not, I see actors run […]
