Extras

Modelling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I have done some headshots for my acting work that came out really well. Apart from that I haven't done anything relating directly to modelling but I have so much experience as a performer. I take every job seriously and approach things in a very professional manner. I'm sure I would learn quickly and pick up all the skills needed for the role. I do often manage to look good on camera and have good teeth and big eyes.

TV & Reality

I don't really have any reality TV experience.
Last year I was an extra in a film called: Northern Soul. Filmed in Lancashire, it comes out to cinemas this winter. Ive also been an extra in a Bollywood film called; 1920 London (out 2014) I am also an actor for a film company that employ actors to make corporate advertising videos.
I have lots of experience in theatre work - both on and off stage. I have acted,danced,choreographed, narrated, written and directed for theatre work. I also taught a short Drama course at the local dance school I work at.
I have a 2:1 Degree in Contemporary Performance so it has always been a huge interest to me and a massive part of my life.
