“Sounds like a really interesting project, I am definitely up for being interviewed. Thanks Nat”

Natalie Hacker (20th August 2021)

Natalie Hacker is lively intelligent 29-year-old woman and was a mum-to-be expecting her baby five weeks after this interview. Natalie’s early life was filled with the ambition of becoming an actor and she performed in various roles cumulating in playing Joan of Arc – without a French accent.
Acting is a difficult profession to follow and it gave way to working in film production and then marketing. Natalie gives a refreshing take on life in 2021, from parental leave to working at home; holidays and Christmas with her parents to social media.
As a 29-year-old it was interesting to have Natalie’s views on today’s subjects such as coronavirus, Boris Johnson, online shopping, racism and the Royal family.
