My acting experience includes plenty of theatre, TIE, short films, independent feature films and corporate work.
I caught the 'acting bug' as a youngster, and have had numerous speaking roles in a range of theatre productions, in both the UK and France. I enjoy playing a wide range of characters and have performed in comedy, serious, musicals, murder mysteries and pantomime productions on stage. From 2011-2013 I worked in TIE with another colleague, to deliver improvisation drama sessions to school children aged 11-14.
I completed an Intensive Screen Acting Course at Pinewood Studios, and another Acting for Camera short course with Knights of Drama in London, as well as a number of acting workshops (Showreels attached to my profile) In 2014-2016, I trained with ActUpNorth, Manchester on a part-time basis and became a regular cast member for Murder One, The UK's premier Murder Mystery company. I have also been the President of a successful Amateur Dramatics Society, and particularly enjoy being involved with comedy theatre.
I have a wealth of life experience to draw on and have a playing range of 50-65 years of age. I love a challenge!
My favourite quotation is one often attributed to Mark Twain. "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did: So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" - Kind of sums me up!
