    About me

    So, I have been concentrating lots on writing recently (as Lesley Ross), working with Perfect Pitch, Ripley Theatre & SimG Records amongst others.

    But recently I have been dipping my feet in the acting world again. Two Short Plays About Gays at The Hope saw me gain an OFFIE award and a Break A Leg Nomination for my performance in The Diva Drag and I was back in panto after 9 years, playing Twankey in Chesterfield Dec 2016

    This year I was Nominated for another Break A Leg Award for my performance in Odd Man Out

    Always available for rehearsed readings, odd day filming etc

    I'm Welsh but grew up in Hong Kong so my voice tends to fit best in RP or Welsh dialect.
