"Heidi O'Connell... Heidi O'Connell... Heidi O'Connell..."
Having only recently discovered that The Smoking Room is one of the bestest and most underrated things on the British tellybox (at almost the very moment they decide there won't be a third series. The swines.), I am even more delighted to discover the actress who played Heidi ("Barry! I'm back!") has her very own website.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Emma Kennedy. Her off the telly and those Heat adverts ("Hello security? I'd like to report a stolen stapler. It's red. No I haven't got a picture."). I defy you not to laugh out loud at this entry in her Blog. Revel in a grown actress, writer and future national treasure getting stuck in her own dog flap. Genius.
Anyway. The Smoking Room is brilliant, but annoys lots of people. Largely because nothing ever really happnens. The characters are fantastic creations, and keeping it strictly to one room works really well. I don't even smoke, but it's still like having a crafty fag break.
