The cat lady with a purrfectly wicked sense of humour, the newest addition to the SBAM team, Amy has all the cat’s purring into her lap as she makes her way, with her no-nonsense attitude and her handy notebooks, through the day’s work.
Laurie: Tell me about your training.
Amy: Shouting into the recorder. I studied film…
Laurie: No need to shout.
Amy: I studied film at City Varsity. I majored in editing and producing. It was nice. What else do you say?
Laurie: So you studied film. What are your favourite movies?
Amy: My favourite movies are….Notting Hill. It’s a great classic. Kill Bill. I don’t know. You needed to ask me these before so I could prepare! I’m so nervous. That is all for now.
Laurie: What do you do in your spare time?
Amy: I do heated yoga. I watch a lot of movies and series. I tried running for five minutes but have had to retire due to an injury. I play with my cat. No don’t put that in.
Laurie: Why not?
Amy: Can’t have people reading that. I like trying new restaurants. And I go to the theatre a lot, which is a perk of the job.
Laurie: What do you do when things are quiet in the office?
Amy: I chat to Clare. I – wait should I say something more professional?
Victoria: Like it’s never quiet in the office?
Amy: I call Victoria about very serious business matters. I try to further the business so that the artists can have a better future.
Everyone else in the office: Laughs.
Laurie: What do you like most about this job?
Amy: No, I’m joking.
Amy: I like the family environment. I like working with all the different personalities and that it’s quite high pressure sometimes. And it’s never boring. Except in winter when it’s very boring. Also Samantha buys doughnuts a lot.
Laurie: And if you could kidnap one of the office animals, which one would it be?
Amy: Rainbow. But he never comes in come in the office. Does he count?
Samantha (from the other room): I thought you asked her which actor she would kidnap.
Laurie: Ya I almost asked Clare that but then I thought better not.
Amy: Anyway, Rainbow. He’s really cute and he likes me. And he’s a cat. I’m a cat person! But not in a sad/creepy way. When will this be put on the website? I need to warm the press.
