Pembrokeshire College A-level student Ruby Wilson has secured a place at the World Monologue Games Finals being held later this month.
With the global pandemic closing film sets and theatres across the world, over three thousand actors flocked to the inaugural World Monologue Games. Event founder Pete Malicki commented: “The excitement is palpable. I’ve been flooded with emails from actors telling me this has been the highlight of their year. The competition is going to be fierce!”
Over three thousand competitors registered for the event with just under 200 making it through to the Regional Livestream Finals. Fewer than 70 will now progress to the Global Finals, which consists of six categories broken down by age group, experience level and duration.
Ruby will be competing against the top performers from 20 countries in the Youth Category on Saturday 24 October.
Following the Regional Finals Ruby commented: “I couldn’t believe it when my name was read out as one of the winners. This puts me up against the best actors from around the world. No pressure, right?”
But the pressure does not stop there. The event is judged by senior industry experts from around the world including filmmakers,
successful performers and heads of international acting schools. Close to 100,000 viewers have already tuned in to the Qualifiers and Regional Livestreams.
Speaking about the Global Finals Ruby said: “The monologue I’m performing is about the anger you feel after a difficult breakup. I actually wrote it myself with some help from my friend Euan Sinclair. I’m really excited despite the pressure and can’t wait to compete on the world stage!”
The World Monologue Games Global Finals will be livestreamed on the 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th October. You can see Ruby in the Youth Category on Saturday 24th of October
