    Additional Information

    Here are a few reviews from plays.

    Considerable skill was shown by actors doubling roles, in particular Caroline Oakes who nicely differentiates between, her roles of Greta the dowdy secretary, the epitome of respectability and the other woman a fluffy blonde- Belgrade Theatre, Coventry- Witness for the prosecution 2010.

    The pleasure of you giving a perfect interpretation of Julia Smythe was all mine- Paul Wheeler- Author, Deceptions,2009.

    Caroline Oakes brings spine tingling integrity to Cassie. Performances this raw and powerful are a rare treat. Time Out 2000.

    A few quotes from Film Directors I have had the pleasure to work with.

    Caroline was a absolute joy to work with, easy going, confident and demonstrated a clear understanding of her character. She took direction very well, did not shy away from challenging scenes or new ideas and ultimately gave a wonderful performance. I hope to collaborate with Caroline again on future projects.

    Daniel Grasskamp, Director, Cat Skin 2015.

    Caroline is an amazing actress, committed and brilliant. It was a real pleasure to be able to enjoy her work. Do not miss her.

    Rubén Serra Viusa, Director and CEO of Filmosofia. The way you learn. 2007.

    Caroline was a pleasure to work with and direct, focused, collaborative and fun! I hope an opportunity arises where we can work together again.

    Rehana Rose Khan, my beautiful laddette, Ponder Prods. 2012.

    Caroline is a natural and I am sure Caroline will go on to portray many roles. It would be a pleasure to work with her again, in the future.

    Richard Morrison, Creative Director, Morrison Studio, Thing 2, 2010.

    About me

    After graduating from Mountview Theatre School, I have appeared in many productions, always trying to challenge myself. As an actress I am always trying to find roles that can push me and develop my craft.

    I am a versatile character actress, experienced in Theatre, Film, TV, Voice Over and Role Play. Able to play a variety of roles, giving absolutely everything to bring a character to life.

    I have worked with some great people and learnt so much and can't wait to learn more.

    I am reliable, easy going and down to earth and love to muck in.

    I am also a professional voiceover artist. Having worked in the past for the BBC for TV and Local and National Radio voicing Ads.

    For the past 8 years or so I have been involved in Medical Roleplay for St George's Hospital, London.

    In 2012 I took 3 years out of the profession to be with my 5 year old daughter and came back into the game in 2015.

    I am a proud mother of my daughter Jessica.
