    Additional Information

    ‘We had the pleasure working with Lottie on a recent promotional 3-day video shoot in which Lottie played the lead role. From the moment she arrived we were so impressed with how she composed herself, taking direction extremely well, and constantly smiling – nothing was ever too much trouble and she gave everything in her performance – we’d love to work with Lottie again and I’d highly recommend her – she has a really bright future ahead!’

    Neil Horsman, Director, Video Film

    About me

    Lottie is a happy, sociable, enthusiastic and hard working girl who takes direction extremely well with a fun and friendly personality. She is an intelligent and focused girl who has no problem learning and remembering scripts. She is also super polite and very well-behaved. Lottie is a slim 12 year old who can play a younger acting age but is also mature enough to act older. Lottie loves to dance and perform on stage and in front of the camera. She has a real passion for musical theatre and loves to watch live shows.

    She has been acting since she was 5 and has been involved in many productions, including having the main role in her stagecoach production of Annie and she was a mini Alice, amongst other roles, in Derby Theatre's professional production of Alice in Wonderland. She was also cast by Derby Theatre for their fully integrated BSL performance of Jungle Book. Lottie has performed in two professional pantomimes in Derby and performed in the West Was End production of Nativity The Musical- on tour, at Nottingham Theatre Royal. Lottie played the part of the Granddaughter in a feature film, The Salzburg Story, with Kelly Bishop, on location in Salzburg, Austria where she demonstrated a real passion and dedication to acting in film. This won the best feature film at the Californian Infependent Film Festival, 2018, was shown in Austrian cinema and was broadcast on Italy’s main tv channel. Lottie also has experience in commercials as she spent 3 days shooting as the main role in a commercial for Anglia Water parks which she absolutely loved!

    Lottie is a disciplined and committed dancer (currently at grade 6 in ballet and tap, and grade 5 contemporary- achieving high distinctions in her most recent exams) and has been involved in many dance shows on stage; performing ballet, pointe, tap, lyrical, contemporary, acro, street and modern dance. She also has experience modelling for photographic stills. Lottie frequently attends acting and dancing classes and workshops, including Vision Dance School and Derby Youth Theatre. Lottie has a huge passion for drama and is simply never happier than when she is acting.
