    About me

    A recent film called 'Meeting' that I co-starred in has just been released on Amazon Prime. Here are some of the reviews:

    "Portia’s acting was exceptional. She would make a great Mrs Danvers!"

    "Portia Booroff is particularly impressive as the assured therapist with issues of her own!"

    "I enjoyed this rather quirky film and thought Portia Booroff was particularly good."

    "very impressed with some of the performances. Portia Booroff especially, she portrays a tense and powerful character who finds herself in an extraordinary circumstance. For me, it kept me watching to the end."

    "A very interesting film, although Portia Boorof’s performance was exceptional! She comes across as such a natural, believable and experienced actress that is definitely the most memorable from this film. I hope to see more of her work in the future. I’m sure we will as she was just brilliant and stands out amongst the others."

    "We especially liked Portia Booroff's portrayal of the therapist. She brought great depth to the role."

    "Portia Booroff performance was a stand out!!! Fantastic acting. Worth a watch."

    Acting experience

    I am an experienced and accomplished Actress with over 30 years experience in theatre, TV, film, radio, commercial, voice-over and corporate work.

    I have appeared in numerous West End Productions including The Birthday Party, The Importance of Being Earnest, Noises Off and Phèdre at The National Theatre and in Washington DC.

    My TV and Film experience is wide and varied including EastEnders, The Bill, Poetic Justice and I was nominated for Best Actress by New York Film Festival for my work on Room 36.

    I have voiced many characters including Mrs Darling in Peter Pan, and narrated audio books as well as corporate work for British Airways.

    I am soon to be seen in Kamari Romeo's film about George Floyd - "Toxic Junction" and at the cinema in NT Live's presentation of the National Theatre's Phèdre.
