Previous unpaid speaking roles
Whilst in school I performed as the lead role in Bugsy Malone which was a theatre production organised by PACE theatre productions. As a result of this I was scouted to join PACE theatre school and I was involved in this for 2 years. Whilst at PACE I performed in numerous shows including Peter Pan and was involved in the direction and writing of my own plays. As a result, I have had ample experience presenting, performing monologues, writing my own scripts and talking coherently to a large audience.
Additionally, whilst at school I studied drama to Higher receiving an A band 1 for my work. For two consecutive years I received the Kelly MacDonald prize for outstanding acting achievement within the practical and written aspects of drama. I also was able to speak to Kelly MacDonald about her career and she motivated me to pursue a career in the performing arts as a viable option for the future.
Since being at university I have had great opportunities within TV, film and music however due to my studies I have had to decline some roles presented to me. At the end of last year, I received a speaking role in ‘The Nest’ however I had to decline this to focus on my studies. I have had great experience working on the BBC Three show ‘Clique’ and Amazon’s ‘Outlander’ as an extra and received great rapport with Stephen Woolfenden the director.
