  • I'm a colouring artist at Madame Tussauds London

  • I basically come into work and make sure that all the figures are looking amazing

  • I paint the figures, I do some touchups in the morning and make sure they look great

  • My definite favorite thing about Madame Tussauds London

  • is the history and in fact Madame Tussaud herself

  • She came over from France during the French Revolution and

  • she set up her original site on Baker Street and we moved here just after she died

  • We've been here ever since. We've survived a fire in the 1920s, bombing during World War Two

  • and we're still here. I think it's absolutely amazing

  • The three things I would say about Madame Tussauds London are

  • the hairs of the figures are inserted

  • one by one individually. The entire head.

  • We still are using some of the same techniques that Madame Tussaud herself used

  • all those years ago. It's very historical

  • It's interactive. A lot of people don't realize that

  • You can go and get up close and personal. You can touch them, you can hug them

  • You can do all these things with the figures

  • One of our most recent and most popular attractions ever

  • I would say is the new One Direction boys

  • People actually get emotional when they see them there. Like it's an amazing response

  • The Queen is another really amazing figure and attraction

  • Over her reign, the last 60 years, we've had 23 figures of her made

  • And always we've worked very closely with the palace

  • We have a great relationship there

  • My favorite part of London, the most inspiring part for me is Portobello Road

  • I absolutely love it. I think it's so creative

  • It's all sorts of musicians and artists and characters

  • You get a lot of the good old London characters in that area

  • The one thing I can see in London time and time again and still be absolutely amazed by

  • is the view of London from the bridges over the Thames

  • I just think it's absolutely amazing, especially at like sunset or sunrise

  • Every time. It's always, it's like wow, I live here!
