In her acting debut, Fifi Box said she tried to adlib a scene so that her character could run off and have an affair with Angelo played by Luke Jacobz!
The entertainment reporter for Sunrise thoroughly enjoyed her day on set, "I absolutely loved it. It’s a lot harder than it looks though. You have to walk into shot, hit your mark and not miss your cue!" She laughed, admitting "I did lots of stuff ups; I walked out of scene and got a little frustrated with myself as I had stuffed up my line. What I didn’t realise was my mike was still on, so my little tantie stuffed up the next scene too! Then I had to walk off camera, and I actually walked into it – a very Ricky Gervais moment.
When I found out I was playing a character called Emmanuelle I attempted to rehearse in a French accent. I then channelled every Fashions on the Field host I have watched over the years, with a little Hyacinth Bucket from Keeping up Appearances mixed in."
Luke Jacobz watched on with amusement, he knows Fifi well and has worked with her on a number of projects. "It was hilarious, she came off after one take and grabbed me by the shoulders and said 'Oh that was terrible' but didn't realise that she was still in shot! She has great energy and is a lot of fun so I am stoked that she got a role."
