The Protector Movie
Jake and Camille.
Let me tell you, I knew when I started this process that I would know the second I met the man who would play Jake. He had to have a certain…aura. A kind of silent, cool presence. And let me tell you, this man very nearly killed me dead on the spot when he went into role as Jake.
Frankly, he blew me away, and I just know he will you, too. Ladies, meet Diarmaid Murtagh, my perfect Jake Sharp! He is out of this world amazing, and I just know he’ll blow you away, too.
When I first saw this woman in a movie, she screamed Camille in every way. So when it came to casting, it was a no brainer for me. I just had to keep everything crossed and hope she was interested. And lucky for me, she thought Cami’s character was right up her street.
Without further ado, I give you my leading lady, the gorgeous, talented, Emma Rigby!
My perfect Camille.
That's a wrap
It’s been a fair few weeks since we wrapped on the movie. I didn’t hit the blog up with a post immediately because I felt like I needed a while to absorb and take stock. Then, of course, I got swept up trying to play catch-up on all the things, and then I remembered that I had a stinker of a deadline approaching and I needed to write a book! So, that’s where I’ve been. Writing. It was the perfect way to wind down from all the action on set. The final week was just like all of the other weeks. Incredible. We filmed some of the most intense scenes and some of my favourites. There were road closures, police assistance, cars and vans skidding across roads, Diarmaid sprinting his arse off in multiple takes (poor love!) and Emma producing tears like no-one’s business. I swear, that woman can cry on demand. She’s frigging amazing. And then we wrapped, and I stood there wondering where the hell the past couple months had gone. And now, we wait, not just for the movie, which is the ultimate, obviously, but for the official poster and the trailer too. I can’t say when these might be ready, but hopefully early next year. I’ll shout real loud when I have something to tell. In the meantime, here are some more pictures from set.

Third week of filming
Week three of filming is done! And you know, this experience is passing me by way too fast. There’s been so much happening on set, and we’ve delivered lots more casting news, from Lucinda to Logan’s heavies. Not to mention the fact that we got to film some amazing scenes in the iconic Tate Modern. And the more I see this slowly coming together, the more excited I am for you and for me. I’m watching some seriously talented actors do their thing with my characters, and I’m feeling pretty damn lucky right now. Don’t forget, there’s a special offer on all Founding Member subscriptions to Passionflix throughout October. Sign-up and get a The Protector Movie T-shirt signed by my leading man and lady. All details can be found here: BECOME A FOUNDING MEMBER. More to come next week, but in the meantime, here’s my highlights from week three filming The Protector Movie.
Second week of filming
That’s a wrap on week two of shooting The Protector Movie…and a few more weeks to go. We spent the week in Surrey at the most beautiful mansion filming the garden party among other things. Spirits are high, laughs are being had, and every now and then I have to stop and think for a moment about where I am and what I’m doing. I’m watching my story be brought to life by an incredible director and a dream cast, and it’s quite mind bending. Characters that have only ever been alive in my mind are standing before me saying words I’ve written and expressing emotions I’ve described. It’s their turn and the director’s to tell my story to you in a visual way, and it’s like I’m creating the story all over again. You are going to L O V E it. Here are some highlights from week two on set…
First week of filming
It’s a wrap on the first week of filming The Protector Movie. I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to describing the week I’ve had. Incredible. Beyond my wildest dreams. Utterly amazing. I really need to collect my thoughts. This movie is going to be insanely good. The director, Tosca, may as well be in my head. Every teeny tiny thing is on point, and I cannot wait to see it all come together. I promise you, it’ll blow your bloody mind. If you follow my on IG, you’ll have joined me on the journey. Here are just some of my highlights from week one.
