Alicia Ancel

Inspire me with your new ideas and challenge me every step of the way. I love working with people and being creative in everything i do.

I like to have an active role within my surrounding community, therefore i get involved with as much as i can.

I do lots of different volunteering work, working with various groups of people and experiencing the buzz of Bristol and its surrounding areas.

I play basketball as well as having an interest in lots of various sports.

I Love to paint in my own time.

As an Equity member; acting in where my biggest passion lies, it always inspires and excites me. I love playing different characters and working with different groups to learn from them and use it to develop myself as a performer!!
