Hollywood Producer - Glasgow

Jane is playing the part of the Hollywood Producer in Glasgow

 

Hello folks. Can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining this wonderful cast in one of my all-time favourite Christmas shows. Have you any idea how hard it’s been for me to keep this secret? I really am typecast as Isa! I’ve just finished filming series 9, the last ever one of Still Game. I am broken hearted to be leaving Craiglang behind and I’m sure there will hardly be a dry eye in any house in Scotland when episode 6 goes out but before I start greetin. I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas when it comes, have a fantastic night tonight and at the bells, have a sweet sherry on me.

 

Jane is about to start rehearsals for Sleeping Beauty at the Beacon theatre in Greenock with her best pal and Still Game colleague Mark Cox. She will be playing the wicked Carabosse.
