  • Education

    YearQualificationWhere
    20062 yr. ActingNew Actors Workshop, New York

    Additional Skills

    I can learn scripts very fast. I'm versatile and great at ageing up or down (I recently played an 85-year-old in a stage farce). Great team player and an asset to any cast. My comedic timing is second to none. I am fearless and determined in trying to find whatever works for a character.

    Additional Information

    Intelligent actor and can tackle any kind of role. I much enjoy the classics and comedy as well as non-comedic drama. Mike Nichols said the scene in which I played Mrs Robinson from The Graduate was "in some ways better than my movie". I am experienced in contemporary drama as well as the classics. Especially excited by Shakespeare, improv, physical theatre, any emotionally demanding role, and anything by Willy Russell.

    About me

    Trained in New York with Mike Nichols. Highlights so far: title role in Shirley Valentine; Queen Margaret in Richard III. I'm super flexible and love character work. Studied Shakespeare with Patsy Rodenburg, from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and with Kevin Kline in the US, where I gained a distinction in name-dropping. After acting in New York 3 years I returned to the UK 2010. So far, I like stage best; I also enjoy film and TV; and would like to do more TV. Experienced & reliable in corporate work. Before acting, I was a journalist, latterly for the Financial Times newspaper in London and New York. I have bases in Liverpool and London.
