I’m an actor who graduated from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2013. I’m currently based in London but always on the lookout for opportunities to relocate back to Bristol (and am thinking about relocating in the next few years).
I’m currently signed with Rebecca Singer Management, and my professional acting experience lies predominently in theatre. In these performances, I’ve been asked to incorporate instrumental and singing skills (I play guitar, bass, uke, piano and flute) and also have experience in devising and improv.
I would also love to gain more experience in film or onscreen performance – including unpaid opportunities should they arise.
I’m a Yorkshire actress who graduated from Hull University in 2011 and then went straight on to Bristol Old Vic Theatre School where I graduated in 2013.
I’ve had 5 years worth of professional experience since leaving – predominantly in theatre. Whilst at Bristol I had the opportunity of performing at Tobacco Factory Theatres, The Redgrave Theatre and also the main stage at Bristol Old Vic. Since leaving Bristol I’ve had a mixture of performing in regional theatres, London theatres as well as outdoor spaces.
I’m currently based in London, but have quite a few contacts still around in Bristol and have been looking for opportunities to work in Bristol and hopefully to move back within the next few years.
I’m also hoping to find a way into more onscreen work. Therefore am open to opportunities for any unpaid film work – including work with film students – to try to build up a showreel.
I’m also a keen musician. I play guitar (both acoustic and electric), bass guitar, piano, uke and flute, and I also sing. I’ve been asked to use these musical skills in almost all the professional productions I’ve been part of and always am keen to try out new instruments as I’m a relatively quick learner and can sight read music. I’ve also performed music in live venues as part of a few bands – including a tudor-inspired-girl-group called the Lacy Janes (complete with Tudor garb).
I’m really interested in building work from devising and improvisation – and am keen to work with theatre companies that create work from this basis. During my time at Hull, I was involved in many modules that heavily relied on devising techniques and performance – including our final year practical project.
I love Bristol and the work it produces – but I am aware that in order to be involved in it, the best chance is by living in Bristol in the first place – which is why I’m looking to relocate there in the very near future. I love coming back to enjoy the city and come to it’s numerous theatres to see the work that’s going on.
