Dr. No - BBC Radio 4

I recently recorded two roles in Ian Fleming's Bond classic, Dr. No for Radio 4. It was dramatized for radio by Hugh Whitemore, directed by Martin Jarvis and stars Toby Stephens as James Bond and David Suchet as Dr. No. I play Miss Chung and Sister Lily, both Chinese henchwomen of the evil Dr. No. The programme is scheduled to air in April 2008. Exact air date(s) TBA. The Independent published a feature on the project entitled "Inside Story: Radio that's licensed to thrill". Read it here.

This was such a fun job to do and a fantastic cast to work with. It came to me in a roundabout way. When I lived in DC, I did a few radio plays for L.A. Theatre Works (LATW) and National Public Radio (NPR). During those jobs I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Loewenberg, the producing director for LATW. When I moved to the UK, it turned out that my British father-in-law is a friend of Martin Jarvis. And Martin also works with Susan on radio plays when he's in Los Angeles. Small world. Next thing I knew I was called in for a reading then I'm in front of a mic at Air-Edel Studios in Marylebone!
