Former TV series star Jill explains how her role as Kate Mitchell on EastEnders helped her prepare for her latest shoot on the Mediterranean.
She told Digital Spy: “I think soaps work really quickly, the way they can help you is when you’re on set and you’re particularly under pressure, or you have an hour to do the last scene. during the day, because the soap always works really fast, I don’t have to shift gears so much ‘Okay, we’ll do this, we can do it the first or second time, I have to go right on it’.
“So it might not throw me as much as it throws people who don’t work at that speed.”
She continued: “I think people don’t appreciate the speed that soap has to take to get content out.
“Of course, everyone wants more hours than soap and being able to light it up is different for each person.
“But sometimes it’s like, ‘the scene is linked together, that’s multi-channel, this is what we’re doing’. So once you’ve been through that, I think you’ll benefit from continuing ‘this is fine, I don’t have to work with pressure labels’. “
