Meet a Member - Amanda Fleming

Meet Amanda J Fleming from  Manchester who moved to LA 6 years ago to pursue acting and ended up branching out into producing 

 How did you hear about Brits in LA?
I was introduced to Craig at an early Brits in LA school disco function within 2 months of my arriving in LA and have never looked back.

What one thing do you miss from home?

Family , and mushy peas.

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus Manchester?
         LA offers healthy lifestyle , open minded people , good weather  and plenty     opportunities and networking possibilities which are scares in the UK.

Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?

Solar de Cahuenga. fab little gem off Cahuenga and Hollywood , great wine and yummy lunch , lot of production people go to have brunch meetings with laptops in hand

What does community mean to you? 

To me community , means a sense of never being alone, always somewhere to go , and a strong sense of friendship and support

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ? 

Research ...research....research. One thing I would say is it is vital to get a list of community based groups such as Brits in LA , so that you feel you are not alone as an expat, it can be a bewildering experience  to someone of any age making a move across the pound . With no connections , but if the support is there , it makes a huge difference. 

How can we find out more about you on the Internet ?
