    Additional Information

    'BEST DRAMA' FILM AWARD

    Short film,'THE APOTHECARY' (2010 - viewable on IMDb) in which I play The Rich Woman, was awarded 'Best Drama' in the First Light Film Awards 2011 held at Odeon Leicester Square out of 70 films and four nominations in the category!

    For more on this see:

    www.firstlightonline.co.uk/fl-awards

    'The Apothecary' was screened at Shortwave Cinema, London (10/11/11) as part of the London Independent Film Festival 2011, in the 'Best UK Short Films' event.

    REVIEW OF 'THE APOTHECARY' ON FIRST LIGHT WEBSITE:

    "Fantastic short.You follow and relate to the Apothecary in the desperation of his moral dilemma. You initially hate the female customer (Amanda Golding), yet the shadow of humanity that is shown keeps the drama natural, captivating and moving.The final blow of guilt was horrible: brilliant ending. Beautifully crafted."

    My educational voiceovers for Boardworks Ltd. are now live to secondary pupils and teachers all over the UK.

    VOICEOVER TESTIMONIAL

    Sasha Taylor - Editor,Boardworks Ltd:

    "Amanda has provided voice-overs on over a hundred of our revision lessons. She has been thorough and meticulous in her preparation and communication, coming to recordings already having thought a great deal about the intonation and emphasis required. Amanda's voice is very clear and well paced. Her tone is well suited to educational material, with the correct level of authority. She sounds very knowledgeable about all subject areas without sounding patronising or intimidating. She always communicates interest in the subject matter and makes the driest of subjects very engaging. Overall, Amanda is a pleasure to work with and has great enthusiasm and dedication to all her work." (Nov.2010)

    STAGE REVIEW

    Review of Oxford Playhouse 2009 New Writing Award winning play 'Pork:'

    "This play is a revelation - entertaining, witty, funny and totally engaging...Watching the way Ellen (Amanda Golding) plays with Pig's mind without him realizing the game they are playing is an uncomfortable joy to watch."
