    Additional Skills

    A native Northerner, I spent several childhood years in France and have a base in the Alps where I love to ski. I enjoy target shooting with 2:2 rifles (paper target only), ride and have a full, clean driving licence.

    Additional Information

    A programme I wrote, "Beckett and the French", based on Samuel Beckett's influences from French writers was performed in revival at the Cockpit Theatre, Gateforth St.

    I have played most of Samuel Beckett's female characters including Mouth in Not I for Richard Ryan Productions' No1 Irish Tour, the mistress ( Woman 2) in Play and the assistant director in Catastrophe at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh; May in Footfalls and Rockaby.

    Voice: I enjoyed recording another feature- length Dr Who radio drama for BBC Children in Need 2015, directed by Brendan Sheppard. Collectively these 3 hour long dramas have raised over 450K.

    Commercials :The HSBC commercial "Lift" in which I had a featured role was in the top 10 adverts of 2015.

    Recently, I toured the UK in Kay Mellor's Band of Gold, understudying three leading roles and actually got to go on. I shot a film, "Words" for BAFTA nominated director, Brendan Sheppard and a short for NUA's Isabella Edwards, " Forgetting Andrew". I have voiced Grumpy the Northern Troll, Feather Duster and Fairy Godmother in Beauty and the Beast on ice for Rowland Rivron. . In addition, I recently played May Abbey in the premiere of new 4 -hander U.S. Mafia play, Family Values, directed by David Gasparetti at the Space, Edinburgh Festival and the Space, London. This show won 5 star and 4 star reviews from Broadway Baby, 3 weeks, London Theatre1. Last minute tickets, Fringe Guru and others.

    About me

    A classically trained professional leading actor- 3 years at Mountview, with a flair for comedy. I enjoy the challenge of good, new writing. I have a degree in French literature (special subject: Proust) from Royal Holloway, with subsidiaries in English and American Literature. Corporate employers may be interested in my City business background in financial publishing. I travelled internationally for years. These days I work regularly in Role-play.

    I have worked in leading roles in Rep and in many genres from farce to tragedy. My website: www.virginiabyron.com contains more reviews, voice clips and my showreel. Spotlight View Pin **contact removed** Students: Skype/Zoom auditions are preferred.
