About me

My name is Anca Vaida and I am a qualified doctor (psychiatrist) and teacher, originally from Romania and fluent in Romanian, English and Spanish.
I had decided to leave medicine and pursue acting as a profession, which led me to train as a professional actor at East 15 Drama school.
I played Division 1 volleyball for many years and I am also highly skilled in other sports like table tennis, basketball, handball, football and scuba diving. I enjoy practicing different dances: tango, walls, hiphop, rock ' n ' roll, twist and salsa.
