DSL graduate Krupa Pattani returned this week to take part in our regular programme of Industry Talks for graduating students.
Since graduating in 2007, Krupa has worked consistently in both TV and Theatre. Notable roles include Farrah Maalik in Hollyoaks and Shazia Khan in Citizen Khan.
Krupa shared her wisdom about the realities of working as a regular on a soap in a new city. She offered excellent advice on a range of topics emerging from a long running contract and provided a vivid picture of day-to-day life on set. She shared experiences of some of the crucial business aspects of the industry, including working with agents, pre-production commitments, contracts, social media policies and character story-lines.
In short, a fascinating insiders' guide to the world of the soap opera.
