    Day 1

    I arrived at the Water Test Centre In Billingham Stockton @ 11am where I was given my paperwork and told what I was looking at doing - By 12 Noon (Dinner Time)in the canteen (Green room) Where I met peter and Oilly two other extras stuart turned up later That make four of us,
    We were Given Our Costumes (Full body Wetsuit & A Polo shirt a pair of water proof trouses and wellies _ the other guys wore Jackets I had a Woolen Jumper) we were sat around for most of the day and basicly we went needed at all.

    We left to come home at 6.30pm

    Day 2

    I arrived on set for 8am and after having my cup of Tea and waiting for the other Extra's to Turn up By 9am We were All kitted up again (Those wet suits take some putting on) By the time we were ready we on set in a small boat being covered with Fire hose's of Cold water "From the mains - so you can guess how cold that was" I got totaly covered and wearing my Woolen jumper I was starting to notice the boat That had two very small holes in it was starting to sink!
    After what was 5 minutes The Boss called Cut and we stopped filming were I was asked out of the Boat and my stand in was to take my place - I was told my one of the crew if I stand on the end of the boat I should find a step then jump over to the ladders and get out ! There was NO step and As soon as I steped off the back of The boat I dropped Under the water.

    The water in the tank was 3 meters deep I hit the Bottom before coming up and finding my way out of the pool wheile the other lads got covered in Tones of cold water ! It didnt help as I too was joining the Crew By dumping buckets of water over the Lads heads in the Dinney !
    We then stopped for Dinner This was about 2pm - It was out and change into Normal Clothes after Dinner It was back into our Costumes ( for some reason I could get my Left willie on I later found out Id caught some skin on my heal and this made it hard to walk even) So I whatched peter and Mark in the Rig finishing the end of the shoot.

    By now the time was 4pm (Dont time fly)and it was the End of the shoot!
    That was the easyest £166 I ever Got.

    I was talking to one of the Actor's who's based in Newcastle and He kindly Gave me a Web site to join for more work
