From childhood dreams of fashion de to judging an American TV competition, it has been a "rollercoaster" career for Scottish deer Amy Corbett.
Her love of creativity and maths helped her build her "dream job" at Lego. It has been an unexpected journey from playing with a box of bricks at her home near Glasgow 25 years ago. Amy, a senior de manager at Lego, now runs a team of 10 deers at Lego's headquarters in Denmark. The company has been one of the world's most popular toymakers and last year saw its fastest sales growth in five years, helped by locked-down families buying bigger Lego sets they could make together.
You can expect to see those tiny little Lego bricks as you have never seen them before. Working on the set surrounded by 14 cameras, when it was "go, gogo all the time" was "very exciting" for Amy, who had never worked in TV before.
Her Scottish accent was a "bit of a concern" at first, but turned out to be a hit with the US audience. Compared to the UK's warm family show, Amy said the US version was supersized with "bigger sets, bigger challenges and incredible talent". The original UK series had entrants as young as nine, but adult builders make up the teams on the American programme, which was also developed by Glasgow and London-based independent production company Tuesday's Child.
During filming she and fellow "brickmaster" Jamie would reflect on how lucky they were. Living in Denmark and filming in the US during the pandemic meant working around travel restrictions with lots of quarantine, but she has been unable to return home to Scotland for a year and half. In the meantime her parents and brother, who have become used to seeing her on video calls, have been able to watch her on the TV too.
Amy started working at Lego not long after graduating, beginning as a junior deer on the Lego Friends range in before moving on to Disney and Lego Movie 2 sets. Her team launched Lego Dots last year, which uses tiny tiles to encourage two-dimensional pattern-making on products from wristbands to pen pots and picture frames. As growing up in the village of Uplawmoor near Glasgow, she toyed with career aspirations such as fashion deer and artist before she realised that toy deer was even an option.
I felt there wasn't anything for me. But we take that into and think how can we create Lego experiences for kids, adults, everyone over the world, so that everyone can find something relevant for them. Amy went to Eastwood High School in Newton Mearns, where she studied sciences and maths alongside art and de, then did a masters degree in product de engineering - a course tly awarded by the University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art.
And her advice to budding Lego deers looking to follow the dream was to get building. But the more creative the better, and we're open to everyone. Sutton Hoo hails 'amazing' Lego version of treasure. Lego plans hiring spree for digital growth drive.
