I have recently been involved in a short MOFILM comedy sketch and as I have a plethora of accents at my fingertips used East End/Indi- this was great fun. I am also involved in a NZ, 'Arthurian' legend, audio play and have auditioned and been selected to provide a Welsh accent. I have many, many more from a Mrs Bucket to an Ena Sharples, to name but two. I have sent audition audio clips to America for short playlets and have been accepted. I have also done two more 'Indi' sketches and a couple of music videos. Loved this. Wedding voice over, comic video, with accent has gone down well with the punters. Also recent lead in a film for submission to this years Film Festivals here and abroad. Sacrifice by Michelle Tofi in which I took the lead is due for release soon. Also Lord of the Rings spoof and a wedding spoof on animals and their 'comedic' accents eg a hampster with attitude, a rabbit with Irish in her blood and a Yorkshire bloodhound.
I have been performing every day in front of adults and young people for years and have always used accents to make a point or to lighten a heavy lesson so I could argue that I have had plenty of professional acting experience. I am trained as a drama teacher.
In 2012 I played various roles for post grad productions on and off camera and this year I have been invited to be interviewed on the Alan Titchmarsh show. Loved this, great fun and lovely folk. This year 2013 I have done student plays, corporate videos, live theatre roles and song and dance and acted in Portsmouth Victorian Christmas weekend.
Two recent student films Jan 2014 Gothic horror and zombie short and March 2014 Chronicles of Nibbleswyke and George Begins-great fun both of these. Recent ad for Pepsi Max- fun. May 2014 'Future Perfect' my first part as a 'nasty' -certainly different and very interesting. I get to use a prop gun!
Very recent YouTube 'Breaking Superstitions' in which I feature and a promo book ad 'An Aardvark Sang in Leicester Square. Archive BBC work. London Grad Russian spoof, talking part(in English though). Women's Institute spoof-WI & the Fly. 1x1 archive interview Blacksheep Productions regarding BBC programs and my memories of my earlier years.YouTube viral (July '15) part in 'do Londoners really care?' Old lady with a heavy suitcase and a choir. A humbling experience absolutely every one stopped to help me and my stick, ascend a flight of stairs with a heavy suitcase.
Just loving playing the White Rabbit in a Groundlings production of 'Alice in the Underworld'. Short but strenuous Halloween frolic.
Cancer awareness short shoot in the south. Playing Golda Meir for a documentary. Two more on YouTube- Dancing in Brixton, Age UK. Suppergranny in and around London.
