I would say I am a versatile character actor with a natural comedic bent but generally an honest and truthful performer with a naturalistic style. I have had equivalent of three years training and loads of learning on the job experience which I think is the best way to learn. Early performing started with music as a singer songwriter and vocalist in bands. I am committed to working in the industry that I enjoy. I have a very strong talent for making up comedic songs about any given subject!
I am female aged 58 with a playing age of 45 - 65. Pretty well preserved for my age, fit and strong. I have worked in many areas including acting in short films, TV and in theatre and while this work has not been my only job or extensive I know am an instinctive and intuitive performer with some natural talent.
I am London based and came to acting later in life - mid / late 30's alongside other jobs as most of us have to do. I did a year intensive acting course at City and Islington College as well as several short courses at City Lit and with other establishments in working with Text, Acting for camera and Acting for radio and physical theatre.
I am also a published songwriter and musician (guitar) and have had a very wide range of performing and life experience including stand-up musical comedy. I always wanted to return to full on drama training but I never had the time ! I still think about it though as I do feel that working creatively in this way physically and emotionally is when I feel at home.
In my younger days I was more involved with music as a singer and musician/performer and have worked in a music video with Tim Pope, and lots of band gigs and some stand up comedy. I've written and performed monologues, and done some bits of film and TV for UK and far east (Sri Lankan TV). I am an experienced medical Role Player - not just in exam situations for students but in real life scenarios for death and dying and for paediatric death and withdrawal of life support (as a mother) where the scene is played out live through a whole day with different teams and different aspects of the process - very emotional work.
I am also a communication skills trainer in medical exam preparation for senior doctors and have worked overseas and in UK facilitating communications skills workshops. I enjoy writing and devising and working with other performers. Comedy is a strong interest.
Previous other jobs include TV production and research - I have worked in post production, script writing and editing, on screen interviews of celebrities and for film publications as a film journalist in the past. I am a trained Complementary Therapist, experienced in Therapeutic Massage and Aromatherapy, I have led Arts and drama sessions for kids and have a passion for gardening and also work as a horticulturist/plantswoman.
