  • Additional Skills

    I have had many years of dance, acting and singing training with various theatre schools. I am trained in ballet, tap, MT styles, hip-hop, street dance, gymnastics, trampolining. I hold Grade 8 Musical Theatre (Distinction) (Trinity), LAMDA Grade 3 (Distinction) and Victoria College Bronze Medal in Speech (98%). I am skilled at accents, particularly US accents. I pick up lines and dance routines very quickly. I have been told I take direction well. National Youth Music Theatre have described my approach as "very professional". I study musical theatre in the West End every Sunday with MXMasterclass. I have studied film acting with the Actors' Circle in Los Angeles. I like to sing pop and MT styles. Other skills: rifle shooting, ski-ing, horse riding, sailing, kayaking. Creative: I love art / craft and cooking.

    Additional Information

    I am half Pakistani half Scots and can pass for Caucasian, Mediterranean, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, South Asian or East Asian. I am naturally very outgoing and energetic.

    About me

    Hello, my name is Laila. I love the performing arts. I have been singing, dancing and acting almost all my life and plan on carrying on. I love meeting new people. The thing I have enjoyed the most in my performing career so far has been acting in a short film (Rozaana - www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVTqAxn8PC8&feature=youtu.be), performing shows with British Youth Music Theatre (BYMT) and National Youth Music Theatre (NYMT) and performing with MXMasterclass in The Best of the West End at the Royal Albert Hall. I’d love to be an actress in films one day but I know it will take work so I am willing to put in the effort.
