    Additional Information

    As well as being an experienced actress, Carolyn is a published writer. After a decade of working in theatre, film and television Carolyn took a break from the business to bring up her family. During this period she started writing and had her first play "For The Love of Art" put on at the BAC. Her sitcom "Rosie and Dud" was commissioned by the late John Howard Davies and was later bought by Warner Sisters. She has also written a book of short stories available on Amazon "Feeling the Fear" And other intriguing Tales. She wrote the book for "A Bowl of Cherries" which ran at The Charing Cross Theatre starring Gary Wilmot. Her Radio Four afternoon play with Julia mcKenzie, Ronald Pickup and Claudie Blakley was the pick of the week in all the national press. Four of her full length plays are about to be published. She now divides her time between acting and writing and occasionally directing.

    About me

    Carolyn is an exceptional actress with a wealth of experience. Her big break came after graduating from RADA when she played opposite Vivien Leigh on tour with the Old Vic Company. Her career has spanned over 40 years in TV, Theatre and Film.
