In the trashy weekend tabloid that appears in our Sunday newspaper, we read that an actress I've never heard of, starring in a miniseries about the four Biblical wives of Jacob, has "a newly acquired skill," thanks to filming the movie.
"I had to learn how to separate the wool that came straight from the sheep, clean it and put it on spools," she proudly tells the interviewer. (I guess her immersion in useful fiber processes didn't extend to learning the actual terms for these newly acquired skills.)
She didn't think as much about the dust on location. "We were covered the entire time we were filming," she complained.
And where's all that dust she was bitching about?
I am so sorry that I missed the miniseries, which ran earlier this week.
