"I knew her before she was famous"

Dear everyone who is in Victoria! Behold my international television debut!

I may very well be on the news tonight.

My lab made a press release for some scientific discovery or what ever (nothing to do with me), and the media decided to get involved. A Channel 10 crew came in today and interviewed one of my supervisors, and after which your standard background science shots were taken - you know, those folk who pipette water while the reporter has a voice over.

I was one of those lab monkeys! And my chemostat was one of the doo-dads which was also filmed.

I think it will be on tonight, but I may be mistaken. In any case, check in to watch my glorious breakthrough into the televised world. Or not.

Well that's lot better than my television debut which was as an extra in a Sportsgirl commercial (how embarrassing!)
My instructions were to walk along the street with this guy (I believe he was the stills photographer) and not look at the camera.
After the first take the director said, "You two are great! You should join Actor's Equity. Now turn around and walk away from the camera."
So that was it. My back, wearing someone else's coat, on TV for 3 seconds.
