About Soldier In Blue

Soldier In Blue provides ex-service personnel to the Entertainment Industry as Extras and Military Advisors.

In 2012, whilst themselves working on the set for the film adaptation of ‘Les Miserables’ having just left the army, Xander Rawlins and Charlie Rotheram experienced first hand the opportunities that exist within the Entertainment Industry that could be offered to ex-service men and women, and the families of those currently serving.

Charlie and Xander served as officers in The Light Dragoons and The Grenadier Guards on operations in Afghanistan and they know how hard it can be to take the step into civilian life. Their aim is to alleviate some of those pressures and offer unique and entertaining experiences within an Industry that, in many ways, resembles life in the Armed Forces.

It is our hope that Soldier In Blue will not only provide a medium through which the Film and TV industry can be provided with a reliable pool of experienced and skilled individuals, but also serve as a means for the industry to give something back to those that have served their country.
