Philip's talents at demonstrating the fish smoker in the kitchen section of a major department store have brought him to the attention of an actors' agency. Great things beckon.

Philip's mum is still caring for him, but he has at least found gainful employment, and it's while demonstrating fish smokers in the basement of a major department store that he is spotted by a hot young actors' agency called 'Weirdos'. It's mostly 'extras' work but he has already landed an unnamed role in a Games of Thrones style fantasy. He feels that his experience in front of the camera is certain to bring him to the attention of the principal director.
