    Additional Information

    When I'm not acting, I enjoy playing Video Games, Board Games, Watching anime, Sci-fi and Fantasy Films/TV shows. I like anything that has a Lovecraftian vibe to it - a sense of the unknown without giving it away. I love Japanese food and culture and I am learning the language. I have a background in Aikido.

    About me

    Spotlight: **contact removed** I graduated from Aberystwyth in 2013 in Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies, took up a mundane shelf stacking job, moved to a city and thought "why move to a city if I'm going to stick with that kind of work for the rest of my life? I want to use my degree!"

    I've not looked back since.

    I started out as an SA, quickly found myself a niche in the market due to my height, as a child body double/stand in, performed as a dwarf in a panto, played a dinosaur from Barney on a stage tour in Saudi Arabia, scared people witless at a horror festival and have recently spent 6 months of last year as a stand in for Dafne Keen in the BBC Production of His Dark Materials

    This summer, I will be performing in 4 plays at the Nomad Theatre and Film Festival, with Red Dragonfly Productions - A company who bring Western and Eastern stories together with a primarily Asian Cast.
