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.

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I am a mature woman who you will see from my profile information is not a size 8/10. I often see clothes advertised on very slim women and of course that market is there but it is not the only market. Those of us over these sizes want to see older and fuller figured women featured. We have a lot of spending power us girls and I for one would welcome a variety of sizes being modelled and a more balanced and reflected woman on the catwalk, one that I can relate to. I know I am not alone in this avenue of thought.
I have recently attended a charity fund raiser and modelled very luxurious knitwear and accessories also I have two, 'Mother of the Bride' catwalk occasions to my credit.
Fun modelling work for 'An Aardvark Sang in Leicester Square'. What a very interesting day.

Influences: Tamla Motown. Any Artists.

Amateur singer all of my adult life. Alto, versatile voice, strong and clear. Good hair, skin and deportment and willing to learn the performance disciplines as required. I am currently improving and working on the professional delivery of songs and I believe I have the personality to match the voice. Recent audition with a professional musician who liked the confidence, the look and the timbre of the voice. Fun is an important word but so is professionalism. I have clean recording gear from home, can ad lib and follow a melody from a quick pick up, can also improvise on jazz stuff. Just completed a short run of Blythe Spirit and Old time Music Hall, plus some Jazz stuff with a pal of mine. I move well, am classy and elegant without being snooty and recent producers say I am bubbly, fun to work with and take direction well so not bad for a start is it? Thanks then and do call me if you would like to know more. 2015-feature part in the professional Portsmouth production of Darling Buds of May, the musical.

ISTD/RAD trained as a young person and I have danced as an amateur all of my life and enjoyed dancing enormously. I have good deportment and grace which comes with the dance training.
