I am an experienced, award winning, professional actor/performer with extensive stage, film and TV credits. I am comfortable in both comedic and dramatic roles, including multi-roling and have played a wide range of parts, modern, classic and including Shakespearian roles. My favourite roles include Pseudolus in 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum', Aston in 'The Caretaker', Dysart in 'Equus' and Lucky Eric in 'Bouncers'. I am a seasoned Musical and Pantomime performer, having played leading roles and with a good understanding of being Dame. I also have considerable experience as a background/supporting artist on many TV, films and commercials. I am good at a wide range of accents.
I have significant exposure to role-play, both in historical and educational roles, but also for corporate roles, used for training and assessment of staff and candidates. Some of this work has involved a large amount of interaction in character with the general public as well responding in character to individuals. Some of my work has involved other role-play for example murder mystery dinners and also a lot of work as Father Christmas.
I am enhanced CRB checked and am very comfortable working with children .
I am a member of Equity and my spotlight profile can be viewed http://www.spotlight.com/9816-8947-4063.
