    About me

    Rachel (Bakewell, 1986) is a performer gifted with presence and charged by physical text. She comes from an initially academic background in language (Chinese & Cultural Studies, 1st Class BA) into training on-the-job and through professional bursaries in acting and performance in theatre. She was recently lucky to train at LISPA (London International School of Performing Arts) where she developed her own theatre practise. She is hard-working, enthusiastic and energetic in her work, with a big heart and keen ear for accents.
