    Additional Skills

    I am a great advocate of Meisner technique - being in the moment. I also practice mindfulness meditation on a regular basis.

    Additional Information

    I would describe myself as a character actress whilst comedy is my forte I have played gritty roles too. I always give 100% in everything I do.

    Here is a lovely bit of feedback I got from a director recently:

    CASTING PROFESSIONAL

    David Tomlin 07:21

    Recommended for: Actress 50-70 Years of Age for Short Film Hide listing title

    Catriona really helped me out, my original actress had pulled out and the shooting deadline was fast approaching. Having first met Catriona on the day of shoot I found her to be professional and took direction well. I would highly recommend her and I hope to work with her again

    Recommended: Actor

    You've recommended David

    About me

    I got the acting bug at the ripe old age of 14 when I was cast in the Great Trinian's Train Robbery alongside the great Frankie Howard - I was hooked from then on! I later went on to train at Rose Bruford Drama School. After a marriage, kids, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, and goldfish I finally left the security of my menagerie in rural Warwickshire, and returned to professional acting about 8 years ago. Since then I have worked in both theatre film and TV.
