    Reviews:

    'I have never been so moved by the portrayal of a character. Her performance was magical and very moving indeed. It was so real at times I didn't feel like I was in a theatre.' - Eric Ngalle Charles from National Theatre Wales Critical Chinwag on 'Blavatsky's Tower' 2015

    '... the piece was relying on Emma’s strong performance and great character development' - Review of 'Jordan' 2013

    'I've never seen Ariel do tricks like that' - Mark Rees from Evening Post (Swansea) on 'The Tempest' 2016

    'Hannah Lloyd and Emma MacNab, given the unenviable task of carrying the show on their shoulders, rose to the challenge; with both actresses very good at portraying the flaws and strengths of two very different women' - - Lois Arcari (Reviewer) on ‘Henna Night’ 2014

    'Emma MacNab provided a particularly commendable and varied performance as she went from the zesty Lemon to the stuck-up Lady Gray' - Buzz Magazine on 'Theatrical Tea Party'

    'Played by Emma MacNab who perhaps had the most variety in her roles. From aggressive to snobby, jealous to horny, bitter to boastful and all flawlessly performed.' - The Sprout on 'Theatrical Tea Party'

    I've taken my Basic exam in Stage Combat and recieved a silver medel, meaning I am now trained to use a rapier and dagger, single sword and also unarmed combat on stage or film.

    I have a grade 4 in modern theatre dance (ISTD) and also am a bronze level in jazz dance (ISTD). Although I have not taken the exams, I trained up to a silver level in jazz dance and a imtermediate foundation level in modern theatre dance.

    I have a distinction at grade 6 Musical Theatre singing with the LCM board.

    I took an A level in dance, which involved being trained in performing and choreographing contemporary dance over 3 years. I also studied musical theatre dance for 2 years (and recieved a distinction at Btec level).

    About me

    I have experience of theatre, film, touring and commercials. I specialise in naturalistic acting and enjoy the process of creating a character in reheasals.
