REVIEWS and AWARDS:
'Anyone who's read the Anne books by L.M. Montgomery will be completed captivated by Collene Webb, who could have been born for the role.' - What's What Magazine (Anne of Green Gables UK tour)
'Collene as the carpet bag-carrying, impulsive, red-headed orphan Anne... is totally charming and steals the show.' - The Cornishman newspaper ***** (Anne of Green Gables UK tour)
The A to Z of Clueless Experts - nominated for Best Web Series by The Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards: 'Collene Webb’s scripting and performance is quite outstandingly outlandish, and she does know how to burst onto the screen with great energy, character and wildness. So, you know, we’ll recommend yet another satirical vlog, because it’s too fun to miss!'
