Jamie says the show, Boys Will Be Boys, was “just amazing” and Danielle lit up the stage. “I don’t have the words for it, to be totally honest,” he says. “I was mesmerised by Danielle`s character, Astrid. You are really taken on a journey with her. At the start she seems so strong, ruthless even, but by the end of the show you see this really vulnerable, almost lost person. It was just fantastic.”
After the show Jamie and Leyla had the chance to meet their idol and the rest of the cast backstage. “I was so nervous about this part but the minute Danielle spoke it was just so comfortable,” says Jamie. “She bought us a drink and we sat about for an hour or so chatting. It was definitely more than I could have ever anticipated.”
Jamie and Leyla’s winning bid of $456 has been donated to ChildFund’s Nepal Earthquake Appeal, to help provide urgently needed food and shelter for children and families whose villages have been devastated. The need for assistance became even more urgent when, just two days before the show, a second massive earthquake hit Nepal.
“I think every little bit helps so it’s wonderful to know that this little bit will have an impact for a family in Nepal who are going through such a tough time right now,” says Jamie.
