“Secret Diary of A Call Girl” star Billie Piper on her “endless frustration” of finding work

Actress Billie Piper, the star of  “Secret Diary Of A Call Girl” describes the “endless frustration” she is experiencing while attempting to find work, and how difficult it can be even if you are at the top of your game. The 28 year-old blames the financial crisis for her frustration.

Piper says,  “I’m just trying to find a job. We’re back to the drawing board. It’s frustrating, it’s tiring. It’s desperate. You slightly lose your mind. You have no confidence, then you have too much confidence. It’s an endless frustration. That’s the nature of the beast. You have to suck it up and get on with it.”

She goes on to say, “Things are getting made a lot faster for less money and there are a lot fewer opportunities for actors. There’s not a lot of work in the UK – that’s why everyone’s moving to America. It’s where the work seems to be. But it definitely feels like a lot more of a slog to get a gig these days. I suppose that’s a lot to do with our current climate and financial messes. People seem to have to work harder with a lot less time.”
