Dancing, singing, accents and gymnastics to a high standard.
Has martial art, wires/aerial, fencing and sword/shield fighting experience. These skills she has used professionally on screen.
Gets lovely reviews from those she has worked with who want to work with her again. When young Connie was already a natural in front of the screen and when the lead in a short film for End of the Telescope, the director wrote that 'Connie clearly displayed an energy and understanding of the role far superior to any of the other applicants. The role had some complex ideas surrounding the character, but Connie seemed to grasp these ideas very well as I didn't have to give her any specific directions as she clearly displayed an awareness of the character. Her ability to improvise dialogue added another dimension to the character and her ability to express complex emotions really translated well on camera, exhibiting experience and skill far beyond her age.'
After intensive auditions, Connie was part of the National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT) company 40-year anniversary West End Gala (performing in numerous numbers including solo) at the Adelphi Theatre, London and their Christmas Concert. Both concerts she performed with prestigious alumni. She was subsequently cast in NYMT's UK Tour of Honk! directed by Jordan Murphy.
Connie has also been part of the British Youth Music Theatre (BYMT) company appearing in the national premiere of new musical Children of the New Forest as Alice Beverley, a lead role. In her audition she impressed not just because of her vocal and physical skills but also for her 'maturity and leadership ahead of her age'. She was also only one of a few to gain an 'early offer' based on her high scores, positive attitude and teamwork. She was later in their new show ‘Help! Get me out of this Musical’ playing Mrs Ridgeway and directed by Luke Sheppard.
For many years Connie trained in London weekly in acting, singing and dancing with West End and Broadway lead and screen actor Michael Xavier at his Masterclass. Michael Xavier has described Connie as a ‘triple treat’ and became a group assistant. Connie has been selected to perform in prestigious venues and with stars of stage and screen including as a soloist singer, actor and core dancer. For example West End Live in Trafalgar Square 2016 and 2017, RADA, London Palladium (with Collabro after a successful audition with Olivier award-winning Michael Jibson), Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, Charing Cross Theatre, Actors Church and The Other Palace. Connie was honoured to be one of the first awarded Michael Xavier's Spirit trophy at the Other Palace. She was also credited in 2018 as a soloist in a piece played on BBC Radio London.
Connie has attended various workshops eg Tring Performing Arts School boarding (summer 2015), Shakespearean masterclass and with Jo Hawes (which included training in combat and stage flying).
She was a member of Spirit Young Performers Company, London, Elite Musical Theatre and Elite Dance Troupes (audition and invite only) and the various online videos she is in are available on YouTube.
Connie has an interest in music, textiles, history, photography and also behind the camera work, editing and directing. She was a sound assistant on a short film which is in post-production and regularly makes her own videos.
Connie can quickly learn lines, takes direction very well remembering what has been asked of her and picks up accents easily. She also picks up dance and fight routines very quickly. She is fun and energetic, focused, emotionally mature and professional. Connie is an excellent storyteller whether it be through the medium of dance, song or acting or indeed a combination of the three. She will devote time to learning new skills required for a job.
Awarded drama scholarship and music exhibition for voice. Takes weekly classes in Taekwondo and for many years in modern, jazz and ballet as well as her weekend Masterclass with Michael Xavier and private singing lessons. Has done debating and gymnastics on behalf of her school.
Been told by press that interviews well (has done both tv and newspaper interviews)
Currently teaching herself to play the guitar and piano. She taught herself a piece of music for the piano so she could be authentically playing on a recent short.
First place winner of Mandy’s (then Kids Casting Call Pro) Halloween Competition 2015 (video-recorded interpretation of set Halloween poem) winning a premium profile for a year.
Equity, Spotlight and IMDB member.
She has an nine year-old brother who has already performed on stage and screen represented by Ardent Talent.
Mother available to accompany if preferred.
Out of licence. Experience of Covid regulation shoots.
Connie is versatile and intelligent with a sparkly personality. An actor with real magnetism and authenticity with TV (BBC and ITV), film (feature and short), radio, advertising and theatre experience. Those she has worked with say she is both a professional and a pleasure to have on set. Connie can look young on screen despite not needing a Child Licence to work and also she can record and edit work at home. Loves to develop or learn new skills for a character and help create an image of a character with the creative team. Has green screen experience.
After being spotted on stage, Connie plays the role of Isabel in feature film ‘Solitary’ a Sci Fi directed by Luke Armstrong recently released on all major platforms and retailers and already receiving rave critics reviews.
One of Connie’s recent films is a beautiful and moving film where she plays the teen version of the lead intended for theatrical release in 2021 directed by a recipient of The Royal Television bursary
Joseph Cassidy. Connie delivers a serene and accomplished performance demonstrating her versatility in front of the camera and while handling difficult subject matter.
She worked on Twentieth Century Fox feature film ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ directed by Joe Cornish as a student fight commander released in cinemas in 2019. Trained by Warner Brothers in sword and shield for the role and also used wires. Connie was subsequently featured in the following article:
Previously to this, Connie played the daughter of the lead in multi-award-winning fast-paced action feature film called ‘The Take Down’ (officially supported by Raindance) and directed by David Newton, a multi-award winning director and stuntman. It’s world premiere was at Vue Leicester Square and won 25 awards and was showcased in the US at a Comic Con and at international festivals. Connie’s Raindance work led her to appear in the Raindance trailer directed by Simon Hunter and shown across London cinemas.
With a love of stage as well as screen, Connie successfully auditioned and took part in the ‘Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner ReAct’ performance-led workshop at the Royal Court in London with director Milli Bhatia and writer Jasmine Lee Jones. She also has other West End and tour stage theatre experience.
Connie has screen training from NYT and training from NYMT, BYMT and Michael Xavier’s MXM. She also has gained her LAMDA Gold Medal - Acting.
