CURRENTLY IN SPOTLIGHT WITH NEW STAGE NAME: ALMA REISING View Pin: 6611-7864-8167
I am a strong character & comedy actress, professionally trained at Drama School with a 12 year successful career in late 70s to early 90s, and I love to be in front of the camera or a live audience. I have just been cast in a Community Film project with The Community Broadcast Company (SEPTEMBER 2017) and have been brushing up on my acting skills with workshops with THE REEL SCENE and at THE ACTORS TEMPLE (Since April 2017)
During the time I was raising my family & teaching Drama & English, I kept my inner actress alive by making the occasional student film/commercial and doing performance storytelling. This year I wrote and appeared in a World Book Day Event as The Sea Goddess telling Tales of The Sea. (March 2017) and in 2016 I produced a programme of Hedgehog Tales for performance at Stave Hill Ecological Park.
