I have done all types of performance work since i was 11 years old and had my first role in 1996 acing Phyllis in 'The Railway Children' by E Nesbit. But most of my experience came after graduating from drama school with a BAhons in Theatre. I have always known what I want to do with my life, I am fully dedicated to the acting specifically, and more generally to other performing arts.
I have a BAHons degree in Theatre, from Dartington Collage of Arts before which I did a BTEC in performing arts in Exeter after winning a scholarship at the Brit Academy London. In-between my studies I have done various work, in both commercial, and small scale art films, Television,and theatre productions.
Some Film examples are as follows.
Singing Walk On in 'Elf Onkel' a Film by Herbert Fritsch 2010.
Lead Role 'Ping' in 'Kalkin Revelations', a Prototypen production 2007.
Peasant Walk on in 'King Arthur' Directed by Antoine Fuqua, 2004.
I played The Bride in British film 'Cleanskin' 2010, This was a fantastic opportunity for me to work with emotions such as terror and hysteria, I had imence fun with this role.
I also co directed and wrote 'Stereo love' a Live Cinema production from Prototypen in collaboration with award winning Project Blinkenlights an art Installation performed at Nuit Blanche in Toronto Canada. This received very good reviews and was featured in much of the local media.
I also have a fair amount of Television experience.
Such as when I played 'The God Daughter' in 2007 Christmas special ‘To The Manor Born’.
I played a fired dancing circus performer, special kills walk on in Larkrise to candleford in 2010.
I also played a fairy winged Hippy, Walk On in ‘Jam and Jerusalem’?written & directed by Jennifer Saunders, in 2007.
I have also been interviewed a few time by ITN, and also the BBC but will not go into detail as they do not involve acting.
I played a reporter With 3 lines of text for Peter Richardsons, 'The Comic Strip'.
I also have experience on Stage.
My first role being Phyllis in ‘The Railway Children’?by E. Nesbit in 1996 with the Buckfastleigh play goers.
I played a Witch in ‘Macbeth’?by W. Shakespeare. Dream Theatre Co. in 2002I also had a chorus part in musical version of the 'Wizard of Oz' By Frank L. Braun again with Actout Theatre co. in 2002.
I also played Hellener in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’?by W. Shakespeare. Actout Theatre Co. in 2003. I love this play beyond all his others, and still have most lines fresh in my head. Once learned I remember most of my lines for many years to come.
I love shakespeare's work and although i'm more of a method actor I have passion for these old texts.
The most recent performance i gave was 'Susan the Air Hosttess' In The lost Islan by the Invisible Circus in 2013. I greatly enjoy working with the Invisible circus and have had fantastic character parts with them over the years, I'm fascinated by physical theatre and clowning and dabble in this as much as possible attending gymnastics classes and practicing slack line walking.
My hobbies and interests are: Fire dancing, film, art, metaphysics, philosophy, rock climbing, ridding, snowboarding and travelling (of which I have done a gait deal, living in India, America, West Indies, Berlin and all over other parts of Europe). Being so widely travelled has allowed me insight into many cultures. I believe this has greatly affected my ability to portray a wide variety of subtle emotions and classic accents and jestures that accompany different cultures.
inevitably this alternative life has brought a rich arrange of experiences and wonderful stores from which i can draw upon when developing my practice as an actor or working collaboratively within a group.
I have also been giving improvisation techniques works shops at various festivals for the past 8 years now and feel very competent in they aria.
