    About me

    I began my acting career at the age of 9 playing the role of ‘H’ in the 2005 romantic comedy ‘Imagine Me and You’. I have since taken on a wide array of roles, ranging from fringe theatre to films (both feature and short) and television, alongside obtaining a 1st class BA Hons and Distinction level MA in Philosophy at the University of Nottingham.

    As a performer I lean heavily on the skills that I have obtained throughout my time in academic study, aiming to incorporate intelligence, empathy and thoughtfulness into each of my roles. This approach has earned me critical attention on a number of occasions, with a reviewer of ‘Franz and Marie: Woyzeck Retold’ at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 commenting that “the actress [Boo Jackson] who played her [Marie Woyzeck] was superb. Engaging with the audience, her candid explorations of her own guilt and dissatisfaction evoked their sympathy perfectly.”

    I have also trained at The Actors Workshop Nottingham, which has allowed me to develop my skills an an actor and equipped me with an understanding of a multitude of dramatic techniques.
