Jamie: I am really enjoying being up in Manchester as it's a great city. Everything in Manchester is on your doorstep and it has a real vibe and a pulse. I think what is also great about Manchester is the inhabitants are all proud of their city and this positive attitude can't fail but rub off on you. It's still not home for me but it's a great place to be.

Jamie: LA seems a scary place. I'd only like to go if I was asked but I wouldn't want to go and hang out there on the off chance.
Jamie: The reason I joined the profession in the first place is because of theatre. Whatever else might come up, it is something I could never leave behind. I find the most overall satisfaction from theatre - it is something you can't recreate in any other medium.
Jamie: I think I would make a good teacher but I don't know if I would have the stomach for it. I love imparting knowledge and learning and I do have a passion for learning.
