First of all, why don't you introduce yourself to those of us who don't already know you?

 

Sure, my name is Victoria Hudson and I am a Leeds-based actress represented by Northern Star Acting. I am 30 years old and I have two beautiful and crazy toddlers. I discovered, relatively recently, that I have a condition called Aphantasia.

 

You say you suffer from Aphantasia - could you explain in some detail what that even means? And how did you first notice it?

 

Aphantasia is a fairly recently discovered condition. It is the suggested name for an individual who does not possess a functioning mindís eye and cannot visualize imagery. Itís thought to be a spectrum, so where some people cannot see any images in their head, others can have such powerful imagery that they can draw from memory.

 

I first realised I had this condition while I was sat with my husband. He turned to me to tell me about a really interesting article heíd seen about people who couldnít see images in their head. I was astonished that people could see images in their head. We looked at each other in astonishment for a moment and then he told me to read the article. It basically described me.

 

Being an actress, how does your Aphantasia affect your acting?

 

Thatís a really interesting question and a challenge to describe. Iíve always had Aphantasia so I donít really have a reference point. I now realise however, that I must do things differently. I canít visualise surroundings I tend to feel my way through things, I canít see a character in my head before I become them. Being focussed is really important to me so that I can hold on to the emotions.

 

To turn the last question on its head, does acting in any way help you overcome your Aphantasia?

 

Itís not something Iíve felt I needed to overcome as itís just the way Iíve always been. But acting allows me to really sink my teeth into a story and fully appreciate the emotions of the characters. I get to leave real life for a while and truly focus on creativity.

 

With all that in mind, what can you tell us about your approach to acting, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?

 

I tend to use feelings a lot in my acting. So for me itís really important to know a character inside and out. I have to completely become the character and feel what they would feel. To do that I have to let go of myself and get lost in the scene. I also learn lines very stoically so that I can let the emotion come out in the delivery. That way it doesnít seem forced.

 

All that said, what made you want to become an actress in the first place?

 

Iíve always loved acting, I was always involved in the school plays and stage productions at school. I guess it stems from my love of theatre and film, having watched a film or seen a play I wanted to be a part of the story.

 

What can you tell us about your training as an actress?

 

Iím currently studying with Leeds-based Northern Star Acting. Iím always keen to add to my skills and Iím provisionally booked on a stage combat course later this year.

 

Any current or future projects you'd like to talk about?

 

Iíve actually just been cast in a feature film thatís being filmed next year. Itís a really exciting project set in the 1940ís called The Forgotten Love.

 

Do talk about your past work as an actress?

 

Iíve done a couple of short films and Iím currently involved in a documentary with Northern Star Acting called The Acting Biz.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

I love Jennifer Lawrence. Sheís so true to herself and seems like a really fun person. I also like Dame Helen Mirren, such a classy actress with a bit of a kick in her attitude. Love her.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

I really love sci fi and fantasy so the Alien, Star Trek and Marvel franchises are definitely my favorites.

 

... and of course, films you really deplore?
