LuneTube Presents a Link to the Past
This week, the LuneTube time machine takes us back to Georgian Lancaster; a period when walking the streets after sunset could be full of danger!
As a busy trading port, Lancaster had its fair share of wealthy inhabitants; but the streets were also traversed by sailors, cut-throats and ne'er-do-wells. Imagine what it must have been like for a lady of refinement, abroad in the city after dark?
A growing cast
For this LuneTube film, we engaged actors to bring the history to life. We welcome Our Denise, who plays the 'Georgian Lady'. Denise is a great aficionado of Georgian history and a talented seamstress. She produces her own costumes, which she wears when attending Georgian festivals around the country. To complement the Georgian look, we needed some appropriate dialogue - so who better to turn to for inspiration than Jane Austen herself?
A Little Light Entertainment
Our second performer, in the key role of 'Link Boy', is young Louis Fagan. When we say young, we mean young. Louis is two and a half, but was utterly professional on set and took to his role with gusto, as you will see. Louis is now our go-to actor for juvenile roles - he is hoping to progress to three year old parts soon.
LuneTube is delighted to shed light on this period of Lancaster's history.
