Meet Adele Heather Taylor from Leicestershire who moved to LA 5 years ago to pursue her acting career.

Was there a particular reason you chose LA?
Romance brought me here! I moved to be with my husband, who's a screenwriter. Now, the entertainment industry is what keeps us here.

What do you miss most from home?
Family, Cadbury's chocolate, real pubs and West End theatre.

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since? If so why?
My first impression was that everyone looks like they're on holiday 27/4! I've since realised that it's largely due to the wide range of occupations people have here - everyone's schedule is just totally different to back home.

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus Leicestershire?
I'd say the politics in America are the biggest difference for me personally. I'm talking healthcare, gun laws etc. Americans often think the U.K. and the U.S. are very similar, but there are quite a few big differences of that nature. (Plus, you know, the fact that I can go to the beach any day of the week and grab a yummy, healthy juice whilst I'm at it - can't do that in Leicestershire!)

Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?
Greystone Mansion. Stunning place and you almost never bump into anyone else there.

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here?
Be prepared to work very hard and strive to make two or three close friends that you can trust and have fun with! Find your own car as soon as you can or at least position yourself close to one of the metro stations as a temporary means of transport.

If your your life was a TV show what would be the theme tune and why?
Flagpole Sitta (the theme tune from 'Peep Show') because...well, the lyrics explain it all. 

Lastly, how can we find out more about you?
Check out the new Coen Bro's film 'Hail, Caeser!' that I was lucky enough to be a part of!
