10 minutes with Rebecca ...
Favourite Film Genre?
How long have you been working in Film & TV Nursing?
Why Nursing and in which department did you specialise?
As a child I loved learning about science and the human body. I specialised is Paediatric Intensive Care, where I worked for 12 years, both in NSW and Victoria.
How did you discover Film Nursing?
Through a fellow PICU RN, who had been working with NoL and loving it!
Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why?
Iceland, because I love it’s Viking history and the landscape is breathtaking.
Best & Worse thing about hospital Nursing?
The best is being able to help people and their families through some of the toughest times in their lives. And the worst...the shift work and feeling like a number. Not feeling appreciated or recognised as an individual.
What’s the weirdest job you’ve ever had to do on a film set?
Not really a job, but watching actors and Stunt performers in Mocap. It’s quite an experience!
What the last TV series you binged?
Favourite series you have worked on?
Well, it’s a movie. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.
Tell us something that might surprise us about you?
I love video games and I’m a massive geek.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Learn to play the Violin.
What are 3 words you’d use to describe the Film Industry?
Hectic, fun, family.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Pay off my house!
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
Play video games or with my 2 dogs.
What is something you learned in the last week?
That you can’t wear anything shiny or reflective in the Mocap studio, as the cameras will pick it up! Lots of people were walking around with tape on their sneakers.
What is the first concert you attended?
Ja Rule and Ashanti, LOL.
Top 3 songs on your playlist?
All Melody, Nils Frahm
Riders on the Storm, The Doors
Purple Line, Ben Bohmer
Favourite celeb you have worked with and why?
Kevin Durand, he is the loveliest, most gentle human.
Favourite Crew Department and why?
This is a tough one! They are all amazing. But, if I had to choose, it would have to be the Assistant Directors (Ads). As the Unit Nurse you work very closely with them, you’re almost a part of their team. I have made some lifelong AD friends.
What is the next Adventure?
Finish on Apes, then a short break and onto the next production!! My life is one big adventure now I’m a Nurse on Location!!
P.S. the boss is a legend.
