STU, MY NAME IS STU
Hi, I am Stu. My name is Stu. I am an Actor and this show is about my journey.
Is the everyday life of an aspiring actor in London a living dream? Of course it is darling! Passion, glamour, drama, it’s amazing. Well, let’s be honest... it's not! From glamorous celeb’s parties to awkward auditions for greek yogurt and tampon commercials (thanks to his cuckoo agent, Jess), It's a real nightmare. Friendships, crazy flatmates (Hello Ben, Hi Diesel!), pressure from parents who don’t believe in your career, falling in love with the wrong one, feeling lost in the big city... What a crazy journey!
