    About me

    I'm highly experienced in theatre, comedy, voice over & roleplay, rapidly able to positively contribute to any production & last minute casting need with creativity and amiability.

    “An intelligent, dedicated actor, excellent at her craft”.

    BIFFA PRODUCTIONS

    "Jane worked tirelessly and resiliently in the challenging role of Lydia in "The Dissolution of Percy". Despite a very limited rehearsal period, she undertook extensive research and went to great lengths to determine and understand the internal emotional life of the character, as well as developing a clear and well-realized external identity.

    Both inside and outside of the rehearsal room, Jane was very much a team-player, lending a hand in the collection of props and costumes and actively contributing to discussions surrounding dramaturgy and characterization. Jane was every inch the perfectionist and her work ethic allowed her to deliver a very powerful performance.

    CAROLINE LAMB DANGEROUS TO KNOW THEATRE COMPANY

    "Her professionalism, friendly demeanour & interaction is obvious from the positive feedback we constantly receive from both members of the public & our clients. We also have great admiration for her acting skills in being able to adapt to any of the roles she portrays & we will certainly be maintaining our association with Jane for many years to come."
