Paige's secret is finally out of the bag!

When the BAFTA-nominated film, Darkest Hour, was released in the UK in January 2018, Sibford School pupil, Paige Godman, was finally able to share a secret.
The 15-year-old, who has been a pupil at the Oxfordshire school since 2011, had been selected to play a refugee in the movie, which stars Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. However, her contract kept her from speaking about it until the film had debuted in British Cinemas. 
“It was an amazing experience,” said Paige. “Having been selected at audition, I was invited to go to London for costume fitting, hair and make-up. This was really exciting and made me feel really professional.
“We did the actual filming at an airbase near Bicester. I had to wake up at 5am and start filming at 6am so it was an exhausting day but thoroughly enjoyable, even if it did involve a lot of takes and patience to film our scene.”
Paige, who wants to be a professional actor in the future, is no stranger to the stage. Last year she appeared as Anne Frank in Sibford School’s production of ‘Cabaret’ and next month she stars as the Lady of the Lake when the school presents the Monty Python musical ‘Spamalot’.
