Like, OhMiGod, I have some totally awesome news for you! Tia and Tamera Mowry, identical twins most remembered for their roles as twins separated-at-birth in Sister Sister, a long-time Nickelodeon favourite of mine, are heading to the UK to film a potentially reoccurring role in EASTENDERS!

Okay, whilst I’m not really an Eastenders fan, I may be after this! They’re said to turn up in Albert Square next month and will be involved in a romantic-comedy plot with Gus and Mickey (I actually know who they are… barely). They each end up dating a sister – but neither knows that they are twins.

I got round to watching Twitches, their Disney Channel Original movie, the other week and whilst it was a blatant cash-in on the success of Harry Potter, I actually really enjoyed it. Definitely makes me want to watch Sister Sister again, but it’s actually not on anymore, and there are no DVDs released as of yet.

There’s something slightly hypnotising when it comes to watching identical twins – I’m sure I’ve already told you my faves in this years Big Brother are Sam and Amanda… No, I’m not watching it, but I know basically what happens through watching BBLB.

Anyway, on a personal note I and two others have finished writing the next Trixie Pictures/Jimmy Teens TV production, and hopefully we’ll start filming it soon. I had an awful dream last night – our first film, Lift My Spirits, finally had a premiere screening in a cinema, and at the end this guy came up to us saying he wanted to show it in Sunday schools… and something about French students learning from it!!!

Anyway, what’s so bad is that when I woke up I realised that this dream version of “Lift My Spirits” was NOTHING like the real version and in my dream it was very… well, it looked very professional, and I’ll hold up my hand and admit, aside from the editing(!), the real version still just comes across as something we shot on Mini-DVs with no lighting and no ending. However, this has made me realised what NEEDS to be done differently second time around – top of that list being filming the ending FIRST! The ending of this new script is potentially the biggest scene, so it actually makes a lot of sense to do it first, and I can’t believe it took a dream to make me realise this… but maybe I have been a bit absent minded lately.
