Q1. How did you get the part, were you approached? A. It was actually my uncle, Terry Joyce, who was approached by the Auf Pet production team [he's an actor/comedian and had starred in local productions like Supergran, Byker Grove etc...] They asked him if he knew any 7ish year old girls who might be interested in a small part in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet! He thought of me [I'd not done anything like it before] and - although terrified - I went along for the audition, did a brief interview, told a few jokes and acted out a part, and amazingly, an hour or so later, was chosen for the part - amazingly because there were at least 10 other girls there - thought I'd have no chance! Q2. The 2nd Series is one of the greatest and a fan favourite. Did you realise at the time that you were starring in such a big TV show? A. I was in both the first and second series. Actually the very first episode [boating lake scene in London] with Dennis and my on-screen brother Kevin [Lee Proud] so at that time none of us could possibly have known how big Auf Wiedersehen, Pet would get. Since I was only 8 years old of course I had even less idea what all the fuss was about. Q3. Do you remember filming those scenes with Tim Healy in Newcastle? A. Yes I remember it all very well, both the first and second series. It was a great one-off experience which I'm so glad I got the opportunity of. I was really fortunate to get that chance, just an ordinary school girl at the time, and its still a great talking point even now 30+ years on! Q4. Did you have fun filming? A. Great fun! It was quite hard work too - obviously we were just kids so we had to repeat the scenes quite a few times till the team were happy with them. The actors were brilliant with us though, kept us laughing and were really kind to us. We got private tuition during filming breaks when we were down in London so although we got time off school it definitely wasn't a holiday, lol. Q5. You only starred with one of the lads in the scenes, Tim Healy. Did you meet any of the other cast? A. In the first series I starred with Tim Healy and his wife [my on-screen Mam Vera] Caroline Hutchinson, sadly now deceased. She was really lovely. In the second series it was Oz's wife Marjorie in the scene along with me and Tim - she was hilarious, a real character. I got to meet nearly all the cast, Oz, Wayne, Neville, Bomber, Moxey. Still have my autograph book with all of their messages to me - all a great bunch of guys! Q6. Did you film any scenes that didn't make it on screen? A. No, everything we filmed made it on screen [although like I said, we took a LOT of attempts to get it right - especially that scene in the boat in the very first episode]. Q7. Do you have any pictures from filming you can share with fans? A. Yeah, I've got some great photos I can share - you'll have to give me a bit time to dig them out of the loft though! Q8. Was it easy filming the scenes? Had you acted before? A. I was a complete novice - and I think it showed, ha ha! Q9. Did Auf Wiedersehen, Pet give you any experience or urge to go on to more TV projects? A. Yes - I went on to do a couple of adverts [cornflakes which never made on the TV lol] and had a couple of auditions for other stuff, but strangely enough it was a good 30 years later before I'd 'star' on TV again - in a really great locally produced sitcom in my home town which you may have heard of - 'Hebburn' on BBC2 last year! Would have loved to have done more  but back then school took priority unfortunately! Q10. What is one memory that stands out from your time on Auf Wiedersehen, Pet? A. The whole thing was such a great exciting adventure for an 8 year old kid as you can probably imagine - I think I'd have to say getting to meet all the real stars, and just being in the whole TV studio environment. Like I said above, its still a great talking point now - and whenever I get one of those daft embarrassing questions we all hate along the lines of "Tell us something interesting about yourself that others might not know about you blah blah blah...." I always have this great answer to give thanks to Auf Wiedersehen, Pet! © The text & images are copyright awpet.com and are not to be used or copied without permission.
