A sports activator from Burnley is the star of a new TV energy drink advert being screened in the UK.
Devon Burnell, 25, who works with Burnley Leisure’s Getin2… Sport team delivering a variety of activities, shows off her budding acting talent in the new Lucozade advert inspiring people to ‘find their flow’.
In the ad, which is part of a splashing £14m summer campaign, Devon is one of the eight people who have been featured syncing into their daily rhythm.
She said: “A senior officer in our department received an email from a casting company looking for an individual that could catch, who’d be interested in being part of the new Lucozade campaign. I decided to give it a go and filmed my audition tape in the office which was like a mini TV advert.
“I was really excited when I found out that I had been selected to attend the audition which went really well. The following day they contacted me to say I’d been selected for the advert and I went down to London to film it and now the advert is on national TV.”
“It was an amazing experience and I’m really lucky to have been given the opportunity. All my work colleagues, family and friends are really excited about it as well.”
In the 60-second spot ‘Find Your Flow’, Devon is seen putting her fantastic catching skills to the test and catching a bottle of Lucozade without even as much as taking a glimpse at it.
During the two days of filming, she got to work with a team of directors, stylists, make-up artists and fellow actors including a GB softball team member Chiya Louie.
The advert is now being broadcast, and Devon said that it is ‘surreal to see herself on TV’.
She added: “It is a bit strange to be sitting watching TV and then all of a sudden I can see myself.”
