Siriol Dafydd

Writer of all sorts. Obnoxious nutter. General booze-hound. All-round klutz.

Originally from Cardiff (Wales, UK), Siri is a native Welsh speaker and bilingual writer currently living in Sydney, Australia. With a background in film and television production (particularly comedy), she loves to write and to make people laugh (usually at her own expense). 

By day, she is a versatile copywriter, content writer, film critic and local news journalist with clients including "Sydney Social 101”, "Thrive Global", "The Beast Magazine” and “Kayak Guru". By night she’s an intrepid adventurer (trapped inside the body of a couch-potato) who writes about all sorts from dating and marathon running to mountain climbing and adventure travel.

Netflix may have fired Danny Masterson but Part 4 of "The Ranch" brings up questions about Hollywood's responsibilities when it comes to sexual misconduct.

Generally speaking, I’m a fairly rational woman. Sure, an inhuman rage comes over me if I’m hungry or tired (or god forbid, both) but when it comes to affairs of the heart, I consider myself (I hope you, like me, sang that in the voice of The Artful Dodger) to be reaso...

For anybody who is mourning the death of Sex And The City 3... here's a reminder of the shit-heap that was Sex And The City 2.

If you’ve read Fat, Slow & Determined or any of my other articles, you will know by now that I’ve blagged my way through some absurd physical challenges far beyond the scope of my natural ability. Despite being severely undertrained, painfully clumsy and generally inco...

Imagine a heavily pregnant giraffe with her legs strapped together, frantically falling downhill with her neck flailing about in the wind. Imagine a baby hippo learning (and failing) to stand up for the very first time. Imagine a large seal trapped on an icy rock, thra...

I like to think of myself as witty, strong, fun and kind. But most people who have had the pleasure (or lack thereof) of knowing me would probably describe me as sarcastic, clumsy, loud, stubborn and ridiculous. Reading between the lines, you might have realised that I...

In 2011, my best friend and I decided to road-trip the coast of California. It started in typical 'Longface and Bird' fashion - me (Bird) eating a Meatball Wrap at 6am in Gatwick Airport (because I was on holiday, and I could) and Longface sat opposite with her sensibl...

Have you ever watched a film and then walked out of the cinema unsure whether you liked it or not? Well, Wilson was a bit like that for me.

Starring Woody Harrelson as the title character, Wilson is a quirky comedy about a socially inept, bitter, middle aged man with a...

If you haven’t heard of Sir Winston Churchill, I hope you’re recovering well from your seventy year coma. 

Indeed, much has been written about the two-time Prime Minister of Britain and over the years several films and television shows have portrayed Churchill at variou...
