    Additional Skills

    I was raised on a dairy farm in Derbyshire and have interesting skills from such an upbringing - animal handling (cows, calves, sheep etc. and am fearless too); tractor driving; 4-wheel drive vehicles. Plus stage combat; elementary Italian which I love speaking.

    Additional Information

    I enjoy creating characters and working on accents and voices. I am unflappable and love a challenge, and am renowned for my calm, creative, warm approach. I am a good company member with 24 years of experience to share.

    About me

Recent work includes a year long world tour of "Mamma Mia" playing Tanya; a stint in "Coronation Street" as the understanding wife of a transsexual, and a season on the BBC Radio Drama Rep.
