Lydia is one of Reel Security Georgia’s most dedicated and hard working guards. Although being employed with Reel Security Georgia a little less than a year, she has already made a lasting impression on many managers and supervisors.
Atlanta Supervisor Azad Majeed, “I could go on and on about her accolades but if I had to summarize her work performance, I would simply say, If you asked all the supervisors who is the best guard at Reel Security, Georgia, Lydia Sutton’s name would be part of that discussion.” Atlanta Office Manager, Kayla Aveille stated, “Lydia has always been willing to help when it comes to scheduling. She makes herself available when we really need her and she is always very polite.”
Lydia was born and raised in Florida’s “Space Coast,” in Cocoa, Florida, minutes from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. She spent her teenage years in Alabama and moved with her family to Atlanta almost four years ago. When Lydia is not on post, she spends much of her time pursuing many artistic endeavors, which include knitting, sewing and her true passion, crocheting.
Lydia’s passion for crafts was passed down from her mother. “My mom taught me everything there is to know about crafts.”
We took a moment to sit down and talk with Lydia to get her take on “Five Questions.”
1) How many locations have you worked on?
I never even thought to count how many locations I’ve been on. I much prefer to take each day as it comes, but if I were to guess it would be somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred.
2) What’s your favorite movie or TV show that you’ve worked on?
My favorite TV show to work on is “Macgyver.” I honestly look forward to every shift I get. The crew is like one giant dysfunctional but really fun family. It’s just a really fun environment to be around.
3) What advice would you give to new guards entering the field?
There’s so much good advice that you can give to new guards, but I think my biggest thing is to not skimp out on shoes or insoles. You will be on your feet all day and if you’re in uncomfortable shoes you’ll be in pain by the end of your shift.
4) What’s your favorite part about being a guard?
I enjoy getting to see all the behind the scene things. I like seeing all the attention to detail that the crew puts into the sets, costumes, and etc. I just think it’s cool to know that when I’m standing guard on a set that there are things that I see that will never be shown on screen.
5) What would people be surprised to know about you?
I honestly think I’m a pretty open person, but some people might not know that I’m super into crafts. Right now I’m really into crochet. I also know how to knit and sew.
Thank you Lydia for your hard work and continued dedication to the Reel Security Georgia Team!
