Employment History & Experience

I have over twenty years experience in acting - around six professional.

Alongside short film and corporate work, I have worked for several touring theatre companies including Cragrats in Huddersfield. I have had a speaking part in Eastenders (Ricky and Bianca special - filmed in Manchester) and small speaking parts in 'The Dreaming of Joseph Lee' and 'Breeders'.

I have had several principal roles in musical theatre including Maria Elena in Buddy - The Musical and Mrs Pearce in My Fair Lady both at The Gaiety Theatre, Isle of Man and Chiffon in 'Little Shop of Horrors'.

I have most recently attended acting workshops with actor Lee Boardman and director Lesley Manning. It is their intention to shoot a feature film in early 2011 which I will be appearing in also.

I have also played Marmee in 'Little Women' and Laura in Tennessee Williams 'The Glass Menagerie'.
