    Additional Skills

    I took my French GCSE two years early, despite having no French relatives, and achieved an A*.

    I am taking both French and Spanish at A Level so would consider myself reasonably fluent in both.

    Additional Information

    In addition to Chichester Festival Youth Theatre, I have also worked with Hampshire Youth Theatre And hope to engage with the National Youth Theatre sometime in the near future

    About me

    I am an enthusiastic and hardworking actress, who commits to every part, and receiving incredible reviews; ‘mesmerising’ (Bognor Regis Post). Despite my young age, I have experience playing a variety of roles ranging in size, gender and age, including an 8-year old fairy in Sleeping Beauty (Chichester Festival Theatre) and Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. As an actress I throughly research and prepare for roles, learning lines quickly and following direction willingly. Although my experience is mainly theatre based, I recently acted in my first feature film and throughly enjoyed my exploration of this medium. In addition to attend weekly skills-developing workshops at Chichester Festival Youth Theatre, I hold LAMDA Acting qualifications up to and including Grade 8, and I am currently working towards my Grade 8 Musical Theatre.
