2016V embodies her character...so convincingly that many of the audience do not realize that she is acting.

    Additional Skills

    I'm a linguaphile who picks up languages and overseas accents quickly. I've had some basic stunt training (falling and crashing into walls), and thanks to regular dance lessons I can take choreographic direction. My writing background means I'm able to improvise and develop characters fast.

    Additional Information

    My background in journalism, publishing and teaching, as well as being a child refugee gives me plenty of real life experience to draw on as an actor.

    About me

    Having performed my own work on stage, I'm looking to be part of ambitious, passionate teams. I can play funny and emotional, quirky or plain, dreary or glamorous. At the moment I'm very excited about gaining film experience and will have a show-reel up here soon.

    I'm of Greek Cypriot descent and can play Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, North African.

    Acting experience

    I've written and performed my own work, including a full length one woman show at the Blue Elephant Theatre in London. Most of my training has been at the Actors' Centre. I have a lot of experience of film sets through starting out as a background artist, and I've learnt a lot from small part in student films.
