Drama students from Reigate Grammar School were treated to a behind the scenes tour of a TV filming set thanks to former RGS student, David Walliams.
The best-selling author, actor and comedian was in the Reigate area filming on location for a project due to launch in the New Year.
“This was such a valuable opportunity for the students and David was wonderful with them, we are very grateful for his help and kindness,” says Sean Davey, RGS Foundation director. “Given their favoured career paths, seeing a TV set in action was invaluable for this group of students.”
David took the opportunity to show students interested in a career in drama and TV production how a set works and what goes on during filming.
During the day, the students met the director, sound engineers, cameramen, make-up and props staff in addition to enjoying the delights of on-set catering during lunch with the star.
