Experience & Qualifications
I am currently training at drama school. I am fluent in French, Spanish and Portuguese and I also play the flute. I am a very outgoing and friendly person who finds it easy to get to know people quickly. I also speak French and Spanish with a perfect accent having spent a lot of time in countries where these languages are spoken. My Portuguese accent is also of a very high standard. I am a keen athlete and regularly play squash. Having studied languages at university, I have a great memory for retaining new vocabulary and for learning scripts!

Here is the feedback I received from the director of the short film in Brussels I auditioned for:-
"I feel you should definitely give acting a shot, your strength would be in the sort of Jane Austen like roles - outwardly serious girl with a seriously soft spot inside.".
