A KILBIRNIE actress who created her own show for Prime Video has launched a teaser for episode two of the hit show.

Maddy Bryce became an instant hit with Scottish show, Cavendish, set in a posh Scottish boarding school.

Back in 2019, Maddy needed a piece for her showreel so she decided to make her own.

After shooting the eight minute episode, it was suggested Maddy write more.

And with lockdown and no work for an actress with theatres and films on hold, Maddy took the chance to create Cavendish.

She penned the first episode and when people said she should send it away to production companies, she sent it to Amazon Prime.

They loved it and it was aired in January this year.

Cavendish became an instant success with teenage viewers, it has reached viewing figures of over 108,000.

Maddy is now writer, producer, director and star of the show.

Part of the show was filmed at Kilwinning Sports Club and in the teaser for Episode Two, you can see the football pitches with Maddy in shot.

Maddy said: “We needed a forested background with no other houses or outer buildings in shot. Our sports choreographer and former local footballer Rachel Halbert put us in contact with Colin Hunter at the club and he was a dream host.

“Location hunting isn’t always straightforward, but Colin said we could move nets and do what we needed to do to complete the scene.

“The major point was the pitch had to match drone shots on the opening sequence which puts Cavendish in the highlands.

“That is the kind of location we love to work with. It was also an honour to shoot in a lesser featured area of Scotland.”

When Maddy created Cavendish, she wanted to write something that turned the tables on the typical featuring of Scottish characters.

“We don’t write drama between girls as is typically portrayed on screen,” said Maddy.

“There is tension and disagreements, but we don’t want the girls ripping each other apart so that is one thing you won’t see in our show.

“We’re also family friendly and focus on story telling so the language is PG while the themes are deep and thought-provoking. The cast and crew are all Scottish or Scottish-based from ages 19 up to 70.

Some are professional in the industry, some students, some untrained and learning.

“I enjoy spending my time and money on Cavendish to develop the team and open doors for others. It has been a greater joy than the original plan of focusing on my showreel.”

Maddy has also been involved in two short films, hard hitting drama Little where she plays a teenager who runs away and Bygone Beaches.

Now, her focus is back on Cavendish which is run by her production company, So Scottish Productions.

“You can tune into the teaser trailer on YouTube for Cavendish before it is aired on Amazon Prime Video in the coming weeks”, said Maddy.

“It’s exciting and a real honour that so many young people have taken the show into their hearts.

“We are all very proud of it and look forward to more episodes in the future.”
