About me

Me? Small, outgoing, different, funny. Apparently I stand out because I laugh a lot & don't take myself too seriously. Maybe it's helped by the fact that I love life. I'm passionate about so many things including my world, my work, my family & friends, I throw myself in the deep end & usually come out better for having done it.

It's hard to put me in a box. I have been described as having the classical look, graceful, elegant & adaptable, yet able to turn on the gritty, no-nonsense hard look when required. I can cry on cue if necessary which is standing me in good stead for the more serious parts. I'm also part of a Father Jack and Mrs Doyle lookalike duo, so if you need corporate silliness, please do let me know.

Additional Information

I am widely experienced in feature films, music videos, training videos and television dramas, with varied speaking parts ranging from playing a Mrs Doyle lookalike through to intense emotional senses requiring tears on cue. I get a real kick out being in the industry in general and hope that I can be a real bonus for your production. Parts have ranged from a Dominatrix right through to a downtrodden wife, every conceivable character between.

I also have done a lot of interactive stage work - making people smile, laugh and get whipped up into frenzies of joy and also scated witless.I have a natural comedic ability and know how to bring out the best in an audience.. However I can do dark and dangerous very well, so let my delicate sweet demeanour fool you.
