Education

About me

I am a London-based actress with a great love of both the classical and the devised. My passion lies in working collaboratively, exploring how best to tell a story. I am an energetic and focused individual, who thrives on working hard, and will always commit wholeheartedly to any project I undertake.

Additional Information

An experienced Shakespearean actress, Louise recently played Olivia in TWELFTH NIGHT at the Minack Theatre. Previous Shakespeare experience include touring as LADY MACBETH in MACBETH with the YOUNG SHAKESPEARE COMPANY, REGAN in KING LEAR at the Minack Theatre, and a Witch/Lady Macduff in RIFT's immersive MACBETH at Balfron Tower, for which, she received glowing reviews: "The moment of the evening was the killing of Lady Macduff (Louise Torres-Ryan)...she managed to utilise the intimacy of the space perfectly to produce a powerful hushed row of utmost intensity." (R. Lawson, Playhouse Pickings)

Louise has also been involved with many works of new writing, multi-roling to great acclaim in the world premiere of A.C. Smith's Verity Bargate-shortlised PHOEBE at THE KING'S HEAD:
'Louise Torres-Ryan gave an outstanding performance– playing several roles, all with distinct voices and characterisation.' (London Pub Theatres) and playing the lead role of Cornelia Lovett in LOVETT + TODD at the King's Head Theatre: "Torres-Ryan excels as Lovett... Torres-Ryan's outstanding Mrs Lovett is worth the price of admission alone." (London City Nights)

Other theatre highlights include Young Lottie/Cecilia in the critically acclaimed production of BRAINVILLE AT NIGHT at the OLD RED LION, and multi-roles in devised piece, PRICE TAG with RED EARTH THEATRE.

Louise was the winner of Best Supporting Actress at the First Draft Awards for LOOK BUT YOU MUST LEAP.
