A message of thanks
Dear Ray,
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a big thank you on behalf of all the team here at ITV Studios for your participation in our drama reconstruction. It was a pleasure meeting and working with you.
You were absolutely fantastic and did an amazing job playing the part of Kell Hutchence. We couldn’t have found anyone more suited to the role! It was a long day and we had a lot to get through so I really appreciate you being so calm, focused, and patient with us. The content was amazing and it was brilliant to see it all finally come together. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you again Ray,
Kind regards,
Anabel Fairclough
Assistant Producer

“When I overheard Ray turn down a higher paid acting job and act for me I knew he was an actor I wanted in my team. Sensitive, flexible, professional and very very funny. A real man.One of the best lines in the original showcase came from him , which was ‘ And you can stuff your carrot cake’ When I get Tephi’s Lament off the ground I want Ray as my chief Baal Priest. He’ll be amazing….”
