Character Interviews: Natalie's Getting Married [Pt 1]

Meet Natalie Spencer

Natalie Spencer is our leading lady. We first meet her when she is a Fresher at university, looking forward to a career in media and nothing can stop her - apart from falling in love! Let's delve a little deeper ...

Tell me about your background.
Well, I'm a Londoner. I grew up in East London with my mum and dad, who were a bit on the older side when they had me and I was an only child. I wasn't spoiled or anything like that. My mum is a devout Catholic and I went to church like a good girl every Sunday. I stopped going when I was a teenager but it's a tradition of ours to go to midnight mass with my parents every Xmas Eve. It's magical.

What was you most embarrassing moment?
I've had quite a few of those! I suppose one had to be the time the guy I thought was the love of my life first spoke to me and I started speaking in an accent that wasn't my own. I just couldn't stop myself. I'm surprised he didn't just walk off. Or there was the time I slept with a guy on the first date and he caught be looking under the covers, checking out his package when I thought he was asleep! The list goes on I'm afraid.

Do you have a best friend?
I never had anyone special until I started university. Apart from falling in love with a hot guy on my first week, I also met the lovely Gabriel Miller. He is the most understanding and kind person you could ever hope to meet. He'll be my best friend forever. Of course, there was also the crazy Bella from university. I shouldn't call her that but without her my life would have been pretty ordinary. Always expect the unexpected when she's around. Mind you, I've had to rescue her from quite a few close calls, sometimes she was drunk but it doesn't take booze to bring out her wild side. I don't know what I'd do without her, though.

What would you say is your biggest weakness? Hmm. I guess that would be living in a cloud. I get a bit carried away when it comes to love and picking the right men. It got me into a lot of trouble. Sometimes Gabriel was there to help me out but usually I ended up in a heap on the floor, in tears and wondering what I did wrong.

If you could change anything in your life, what would it be?
Well, I'd try to invent a time machine and go back a few years. Then I'd open my eyes, stop being such an overly keen romantic and see life for what it really is. I let too many opportunities pass me by and I can never get the time back.

What would people like most about you or would admire you for?
Well, I'm ambitious and started my own business which actual grew to be quite successful - well for me anyway. I became a good photographer and that's how I make my living now. I plan to travel the world and take photographs. I might be a clumsy airhead at times but I'm a faithful friend and a good listener. It's just listening to myself I have a problem with!

Thanks Natalie!

I liked the idea of trying to cast real life actors for my characters. So here goes: Natalie has long, dark, curly hair, she's slim and has big blue eyes. In my head she always seemed a bit like Jess out of New Girl:
But then she's also a bit like Zelda from The A to Z of Love because there is a zany look about her that I think Natalie would have:
So I guess my Natalie Spencer would be a combination of both of the above.

Tell me if you agree after you've grabbed your copy of Natalie's Getting Married!

The next interview is with main male lead: Gabriel Miller. Watch this space :)
