2019she avoided the pitfall of monotony when repeating scenes, by switching masterfully between moments of deep solemnity and warm humour
Alex Gibbon
2019Able to switch from anger to humility depending on the requirements of the scene. Hornby’s Marianne is quirky yet feisty

    About me

    I've been acting since the age of 10 and since then have known this is the profession I've always wanted to be a part of. The thought of getting paid to do something you love and also can't live without seemed the obvious choice for me.

    My training has been largely theatre based, performing in Speech and Drama Festivals when I was younger, then going on to become part of a theatre company where we studied and performed at theatre's in West Sussex, including Chichester Minerva Theatre.

    I then went on to continue my theatre studies through school, acting in musicals and plays alongside my academic life. Even when attending The University of Leeds, where I studied History of Art, I was an avid member of the Leeds Theatre Society, performing in as many plays as possible. in my last year I performed in Nick Payne's Constellations as Marianne and then in the final term I was lucky enough to play Beverly in Mike Leigh's, Abigail's Party.

    Since leaving University, I have co-founded a theatre company with some fellow Leeds students. We were lucky enough to transfer our production of Constellations in the Spring of 2018 to The Hen and Chickens Theatre in London. I then went on to perform in a new writing at The Edinburgh Fringe called "The Life and Death of Colin'. Since then I have been working as a creative at Secret Cinema and am about to start rehearsals as a performer in the production of Stranger Things. Alongside working as a creative at the company, I also starred in a production of The Canterbury Tales at The Tower Theatre in Stoke-Newington.

    I'm incredibly hard working and my drive to grow as an actor, means I push myself to try new things and commit fully to every part that comes my way. I've trained in both improvisation, comedic and dramatic theatre but I'm keen to work in film. I have been in classes in Film technique, constantly trying to evolve and develop my skills in all areas of acting.
