Today I had the great pleasure of featuring in a new BBC2 Drama "Best of Men" as one of the iconic "Windmill Girls". It was a real privilege to be recreating a very important moment in history.
"Best Of Men is the remarkable and uplifting true story of the birth of the Paralympic Games and its visionary creator Dr Ludwig Guttmann". To find out more about "Best Of Men" see HERE! and to read abit more about the real "Windmill Girls" see HERE!
I assume the drama will be airing around the time of the Olympics/Paralympics this year (August) but I will keep you posted!
So here is the real life "Windmill Girls" circa 1940's
And here we are!! The costumes were so cute and we were all given matching "Betty Grable" hair do's! Our routine was a super high kicking Can Can and we spent most of the time trying to keep our hamstrings warm!! My wonderful fellow showgirls were Charlotte, Rowan, Hannah, Lisa and Amber.
