Education

About me

Having studied drama at the Middlesex University (formerly the New College of Speech and Drama), I put my career on the back burner for a number of years while I played mother and wife. Then, about three years ago, I sold my house in order to kick-start my career again. Comedy is my first love, and I am currently rehearsing with a comedy improvisation troupe called Existential Pants. For a quick comedy sketch on Youtube: http://youtu.be/ccicKzlvTmk

Additional Information

I have been told by many that I'm a highly versatile actress who can slip with ease into practically any accent (especially within the British Isles!) Because of my love of comedy I have great timing too!
