Right EC fans, get your questions ready because our fave Irish actress is coming to you live from Twitter on Tuesday 26th May @ 8pm for an exclusive 1 hours worth of our time. Woop woop!!
Please keep your questions clean, mindful and respectful. I’m loving the fact Elaine’s getting more and more into social media and I think Twitter is the best way to do it, so please give her your support. #NoOffence #Takeover
Watching/reading all the tweets/retweets about No Offence over the past couple of weeks and reading some of the reviews from the likes of The Independent and The Guardian are proving the show is quite popular and gaining a respectable viewership with a consolidated rating of 3.6 Million last week.
Lou and I were privileged to be a part of the last showing of Deluge on Saturday night and WOW! What a night and performance it was. We saw Deluge towards the end of review week and thought it might be nice to treat ourselves to the final showing to compare how different the play would be. Firstly, we were provided with warmed towels which was a nice touch and did the job of keeping most of us warm and dry; so thank you @Hamps_Theatre for thinking of us poor front rowers.
Secondly, could Elaine get any better than review week? The easy and simple answer to that one is a thousand times yes! I find it amazing how she completely out-performed herself, dug so deep emotionally, yet she never crossed that line of over-acting or hamming it up. She’s perfected the art on screen, that we know, but to do it in a live setting, with the audience so intimately close to you is beyond outstanding. This is one of the reasons I love doing this website. It’s an honour and a great privilege to share this amazing and amazingly stunning actress with the world.
If you went and saw the play, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. If not, I do hope you keep an eye out for the next time she’s on stage. You definitely won’t regret it.
On another note, Lou and I, on behalf of everyone at The Elaine Cassidy Site, sent Elaine a bunch of flowers (which happened to come with a box of chocs) to congratulate her on the gruelling month long run in Deluge. This is what the card said:
First there was the insomnia.
Then there were the support groups that helped him sleep.
Then Marla Singer turned up, muscled in on ascending bowel cancer and ruined everything.
Then he met Tyler…

There’s an uncanny presence on Joe and Kitty’s farm. Precious feed is mysteriously disappearing from the hayshed and prized livestock is being slaughtered at night whilst sinister shadows lurk in the darkness.
With fodder running out and no money left, Joe and Kitty, like their desperate neighbours, will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their cherished land. But at what cost?

It was a brilliant start to my career. After that I kept being sent similar roles, all of which I turned down. If I’d wanted to keep playing the same part, I’d have gone into a soap.
