About Me

I'm 19, and as of the 4th May 2016 I left my retail job to pursue a career in performing. My main passion is for musical theatre, but as that is where my main training is based I would love to try acting for film/TV and even radio to expand my abilities.

Other Information

Relevant Skills

I have an ability to learn lines quickly - I usually learn a whole play in one night and I find it easy to learn all the lines, not just my own. I am a competent all-rounder.

Interests & Hobbies

My main hobby is theatre - I love being part of it or just viewing. I also enjoy making YouTube videos for my channel and reading a lot of books. I like to give myself random challenges to learn skills so I'm currently failing to pick up French and I'm considering picking up a guitar.
