    THE REEL SCENE - prepares actors for the film & TV industry

About me

I am a trained actress and worked for 12 years in the industry from 1978 to 1990. Life took me into teaching to support my family but I never lost my passion for acting. I have just completed several workshops with THE REEL SCENE and I am now returning to the industry, hoping there might be less competition now I am in the over 50 category!!! Most of my early experience was in Theatre with tours, rep and finally into the West End. Now I am looking to work more in TV and film.
