Press Release - 17thMarch 2017
Angie Le Mar launches Full Circle
at Waterstones Piccadilly surrounded by friends and supporters spanning decades of showbusiness
London, United Kingdom: On Thursday 16thMarch 2017, comedienne, actress, writer, director, presenter and producerAngie Le Maradded published author to her long list of accomplishments. Her first book, a memoir, launched at London's iconic Waterstones Piccadilly bookshop with a host of celebrity support including actors Richard Blackwood (Eastenders), Ellen Thomas (Eastenders) and Chizzy Akudolu (Holby City); broadcaster, journalist and presenter Brenda Emmanus; comedians Travis Jay and Kojo, and many more fans, friends and family.
Full Circle(£11.99, Filament Publishing) starts with the story of a young black girl growing up in South London, providing a vivid snapshot of life through the eyes of a child of the 1960s and 1970s, being part of the church and a multi-cultural community, and discovering a natural passion for performing and making people laugh. The story travels through Angie's life; from becoming a parent three times over, struggling with the ups and the downs of a life in showbusiness, learning to live with dyslexia, and returning to the church, with the over-riding, powerful messages echoed throughout: "Finish what you start", "What the mind can conceive, the man can achieve' and "When a door closes, just open another".
The room was bursting with stories of how Angie has helped and touched people over the years, opening doors for people who wanted to be on the stage or radio. Angie has helped so many people over the decades to build their own careers and successes, including actor and presenter Richard Blackwood, who recalled how Angie encouraged him to repeat his lines over and over again during rehearsals - each time bringing something different to her show The Brothers - a technique he now applies to his acting career as Vincent Hubbard in Eastenders.
Full Circle poignantly launched on Angie Le Mar's father's birthday. Raglan George Martin died on 16thApril 2016 and Angie writes with enormous love and admiration for her father, with a chapter dedicated to him (Daddy's Girl) in her memoir.
Angie Le Mar says: "Last night was an amazing evening and it meant so much to be with my friends and family to celebrate the launch of Full Circle on my Dad's birthday."
