Education

About me

I trained for three years at The Guildhall School of Musica & Drama, and did a Post Graduate course in voice at Central (now the MA in Voice). I have been in the business for over thirty years, and have appeared in the West End, on Number One Tours, Musical Theatre, TV, Film, commercials and corporate training. Most recent film work includes feature, The Last House on Cemetery Lane, and shorts Evil & Wicked Spirits, Metronome, A Week In the Day of Elspeth Palmer and Goodnight Gigi. I'm also featured in the latest Skype campaign and Virgin Atlantic campaigns. 2017 has three exciting film projects lined up (about which, more later). I have just heard I've been awarded Best Supporting Actress at the Claw Festival 2016/17 for short film Skin directed by Deloris Collins with Roger Pearce (DOP)
