Name: Gillian MacGregor
Connection to Burlexe: Proud cast member, x
Name of new project: Hit Girls
Role in new project: Writer/actress
What’s it about: Hit Girls is about two female assassins who keep killing each other’s boyfriends.
How did you get involved: I wrote it a while ago and it went through various stages of almost getting made. Then producer and fellow Hit Girl, Miss Rosie Fellner came along and picked up the producing reigns and we haven’t looked back.
Why should our audience see it: I think the Burlexe audience should see it because it’s fun and sexy with loads of really dark humour. The Hit Girls are strong, supremely confident women and I think they will enjoy that.
Quote for poster: Girls fight dirty
