He played in Tony Pomfret’s Dollar Baby Night Surf as Needles.
SKSM: Could you start with telling me a bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?
Jamie Chambers: Hi, I’m Jamie Chambers. I’m an actor and film producer from London, England. I’ve been working in film and TV for about 7 years.
SKSM: How did you become involved in Night surf film?
Jamie Chambers: That was a straight up casting process. It was a great concept and something I really wanted to get involved with.
SKSM: What do you think it is in the story that attracts people so much?
Jamie Chambers: I think the idea that “the end” is inevitable and that it doesn’t matter what you do, the outcome is fixed. To be “the last ones” and have that glimmer of hope taken away is incredibly powerful and dark.
SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?
Jamie Chambers: I auditioned, but I was allowed to make the character my own.
SKSM: You worked with Tony Pomfret on this film, how was that?
Jamie Chambers: Tony is great to work with. He relays his vision very clearly and is always available to help with direction and guidance. He gave me a lot of support but also freedom during the shoot.
SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?
Jamie Chambers: There were some touching moments for me personally with some of the other cast. On a less serious note, I enjoyed working with the Key Grip “Barnaby”. We had a lot of fun in between takes. In general I’m a bit of a “wind up” on set and tend to mess about with everyone.
SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the crew/cast from that time? If so with who?
Jamie Chambers: Yeah we’ve all kept relatively in contact. It’s such a busy and hectic industry that you rarely get to work with the same people again.
SKSM: What are you working nowadays?
Jamie Chambers: I have been working hard as in Film Production and developing my own film slate. It’s been a great challenge to combine acting with producing. I’m also still training hard, spending about 16 hours a week in the gym.
SKSM: Are you a fan of Stephen King’s work?
Jamie Chambers: I really am. Some of his stories are really engrossing! Especially “The Stand”, “Cell” and “Secret Window”
SKSM: What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
Jamie Chambers: Just one? I’m a huge metal fan. I love bands like Slipknot, Linkin Park, Korn, Crossfaith and Metallica.
