    Additional Information

    I am British/Greek - my father was a Greek from Egypt. I can speak some Greek and am fairly fluent in French.

    I am married to an American - we met in San Francisco and now frequently visits his folks near Philadelphia... so I can slide fairly comfortably into those accents. I also lived in south Wales for a few years so Welsh is very familiar too.

    About me

    I am naturally curious: I like to explore and am not afraid of treading new ground or dealing with possibly delicate material - being vulnerable or allowing myself to be with difficult feelings. I think this was honed in my time with an experimental theatre company (7 years in an ensemble) and it serves me well as training.

    I like challenging, developed roles which engage with audiences. And I like being playful with other performers.

    Acting experience

    After running a TIE company in Wales, fringe Shakespeare in San Francisco and 7 years with an experimental theatre company, Apocryphal at Camden People's Theatre I have learnt to be constantly creative, collaborative and versatile.

    In recent years I have been co-deviser/performer of a series of highly interactive performance-games, selling-out at Battersea Arts Centre & touring nationally. Video (1'40") www.youtube.com/watch?v=obzSYqRh1Kc
