Actress Annie Wallace Visits Pupils

We would like to give Annie Wallace a big thank you for giving up her time to come and speak to some of our pupils. She gave a really good talk on her career in the industry and gave out some really useful advice and answered questions from our pupils. Everyone enjoyed the talk and found it very interesting. We look forward to seeing her on our screens again soon!

Actress and Former Pupil Annie Wallace to Visit School

The actor, Annie Wallace, has volunteered to come and do a free talk to students at the Grammar on Monday 28th May. She has starred in Eastenders and Hollyoaks and is famous for being one of the first transgender actors to be nominated for a TV Soap award. She is up headlining the Pride Parade in Aberdeen on the 26th of May. An interesting fact is that she is an ex-Grammar pupil. Her talk will be about how to get into the performing arts industry and challenges she has overcome being transgender. She will also be taking some questions from the pupils.

We are looking forward to meeting her. If there are any pupils who would be interested in coming along to her talk please speak to your Drama teacher.

It’s a long, hot summer. Six teenagers are in various states of longing and unrequited love. A boy has a crush on the girl next door; only she’s going out with the school heartthrob. Two teenagers meet for a blind date but they’re both thinking about someone else. A shy girl with a secret makes friends with the most popular girl in her class. Only these are love stories with a difference: thanks to the inner voice trailing around after each character, we get to hear what they’re all saying and thinking. Fortunately, there’s a narrator to keep us all on track, but there’s a small problem: our narrator would much rather be on reality TV.
