    About me

    I’m a Dentist. It all started when a Casting Director came in for a Scale & Polish, who happened to be casting a Play and well it must have been a good polish, as I got the role! I’ve always challenged myself to be open to stepping outside of my comfort zone and taking this first step as an Actor, was one of the most terrifying but life-transforming steps I’ve ever taken.

    One of the best things about acting is working within a team. I remember being cast in my first Play in Stoke, and I think it’s great how a group of people who likely know nothing about each other, then come together to make a production as good as it can be. Personally, I’ve found this to be one of the most motivating experiences I’ve took away from acting and it definitely keeps me feeling positive and hungry for the next role.

    I think being an Actor means creating a world for that person to live in and being aware of what their backstory is, so that I can hopefully, project a characters’ thoughts in a natural and believable way. This is an exciting and sometimes intimidating part of playing a role, but it’s also something I genuinely love doing.

    I am committed to improving myself and learning the craft of being an Actor. To that end, I have been attending monthly Film & TV Workshops, completed a Screen Combat course and performed in Theatre groups and Film productions across Staffordshire. I also want to keep stepping outside my comfort zone: I have recently completed my Introductory Level in British Sign Language, which was an amazing but challenging experience that has taught me there are many different and intricate ways we can communicate.

    So far in 2020, I have been working on a character for a Feature Film and filming scenes to form a ‘Showreel’ of my work. I’ve had a keen interest in Drama from a young age but I did not have the confidence to follow it through. This is now my passion, and I will give you everything I have.
