    About me

    I got the ‘dramatic bug' when I asked for drama lessons for Christmas as an 8 year old and within a year had taken a lead role as Lucy Pevensie in The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe and became the youngest successful applicant for a 10 month TV & Film ‘On It’ Academy at the Tobacco Theatre in Bristol (for 9-18 year olds), where I gained an offer for representation at the end.

    Since then I have continued to take opportunities whenever available to develop my natural talent with LAMDA, Musical Theatre, dance (ballet & jazz) and won the Mid-Somerset Festival 3 years in a row for Verse Speaking.

    Experienced in both lead and supporting roles, I’m committed, enthusiastic, learn lines quickly and take direction well. I continue to be involved in local drama groups and theatre productions whilst seeking filming opportunities.

    Testimonials

    "I first saw Abby at the auditions and was blown away by her outstanding acting ability, just how natural she is and the camera LOVES her! The problem I had was that she looked to old for Flo and too young for Bella, so I decided I couldn't lose her talent so wrote her in a role, Jessie. Which is one of the best decisions of Never alone. She is bright and bubbly while maintaining a great maturity to the role, she is calm on set and a lovely person to be around."
