21 year old Buffy Milner is from Bildeston. Whilst at One, she starred in a performance of Guys and Dolls and during her stint she auditioned to join up with the New York Film academy.
After successfully gaining her place at this prestigious place of study (in New York), she headed off to ‘the big apple’ in 2014 before moving to California last year.
Buffy takes up the story: “I completed my first year in New York and I am now in LA. I live right next to the Warner Bros studios in Burbank and many of my classes and workshops are actually in Warner Bros and universal studios - we film there which is a lot of fun.
“The whole experience has been incredible and I’m having the best time. The highlight for me in New York was being on the set of the film A Bridge of Spies. I met Tom Hanks and Stephen Spielberg and stood by the camera with them as they filmed in the streets of Brooklyn as they made the entire street pour with rain. It was an unforgettable experience.”
“In LA, I’ve met a lot of stars including, Johnny Depp, Seth Rogen, Bryan Cranston, George Clooney, Charlize Theron, Ellen Degeneres and I saw many celebrities on the red carpet at the golden globes.
“I have been working hard since I got here and have been in a few short films. I realised a few months ago that I now have a profile on IMDB which has a couple of my film credits on there.
“A few weeks ago I was in my first Screen Actors Guild film which was exciting. I have also been doing plays and keeping up with theatre since I have been here. I was in the musical The Circle of Life: An adaptation of The Lion King which was a lot of fun and a massive success - and I recently attended Sandra Bullock’s new film (Our Brand is Crisis) and was pictured on the red carpet.”
