Mark Rendell is well-known in ELT as principal of St Giles in central London, deputy chair of the English UK board, and chair of English UK London.
And now you can see even more of him – as an actor in newly-released film The Bromley Boys, which goes on general release on June 1. Based on a comic novel, it tells the story of a football superfan who tries to get his failing club back in the news, and stars Alan Davies and Martine McCutcheon.
Bromley resident Mark saw an advert for film extras and thought it would be fun – bur ended up with a role as one of the players in the on-screen team. In case you want to spot him, he's the team's Number 6.
He's now experienced the fun of filming, and the fun of attending the red-carpet London premiere at Wembley Stadium - in dinner jacket and black tie. He's even got a listing on industry guide IMDB.
"It's a great film and the script is superb – it's very funny," said Mark. "I filmed for ten days, and it was pretty addictive. If I decide to leave ELT – but I've got no plans to - I now know what I'd like to do next!" previous entry << >> next entry
