    Additional Skills

    I've been told my face is very expressive. I have a good sense of humour and love doing comedy, but I also like really meaty tragic parts, with a few pyschiatric problems as well (in the part I mean!), as I love crying, shouting or screaming in my acting! I'm also good at playing the silent sad type.

    Until December 2017 I worked as a Librarian in a special needs school where I took drama workshops. It also afforded the opportunity to study the children and to incorporate that into my acting.

    About me

    I would like to get some work in commercials, small TV parts, theatre and especially role play (My speciality).

    Since taking early retirement from a special needs school where I used drama on an almost daily basis I have taken the opportunity to be involved in three local drama group productions whilst also taking part in music videos and other short films. Over the recent three years have taken part in both Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals.
