    About me

    My first professional job, at the age of 8, was at the Southbank Centre as a street urchin working alongside the cabaret artist Meow Meow. I have since worked on over TWENTY DIFFERENT PROJECTS, most of which have been professional. These include three feature films, guest lead in a TV series, several short films, music videos, commercials, book trailers, editorial and art modelling, stage productions and cabaret.

    One of my most exciting jobs recently was playing the guest lead role of Luna in CASUALTY and

    a witch in the RSC's production of Macbeth at the Barbican Theatre in London.

    My latest film was The Time Tree, a PERIOD film where I played the lead role of Anne, a deaf girl from the 16th century, some scenes from which we actually shot up a tree!

    I also loved working on the BAFTA-nominated feature film, NOTES ON BLINDNESS, where I played Imogen, the daughter of blind father John Hull. This was based on the real John’s audio cassette recordings, and I lip-synced to Imogen’s lines.

    I’ve played a huge variety of other ROLES, which have included: a mini Theresa May(!), a refugee, a zombie, a daughter from a very dysfunctional family, a reluctant member of a religious cult, an orphan, a young girl pondering her future, a street urchin and an aspiring starlet!

    I’ve learnt and used so many SKILLS from all these acting opportunities: for example, monologues, ensemble acting - with both child and adult actors, lip-syncing, musical theatre, sign language, learning to communicate as a deaf child, and snippets of all sorts of languages from the multinational crews.

    I’ve also really gotten into FILM-MAKING (inspired by one of the camera-men from Notes on Blindness who taught me how to use iMovie). I have directed, edited, filmed and written scripts for several of my own videos and mini films. Sister in the Mirror, a 2-minute film that I produced with my younger sister won an award in the 2016 Sense of Humour film competition and was screened at the NFT! More recently, I have been making films focusing on issues that are important to me, for example the plight of refugees and social justice – you can see one of my refugee films on my profile.

    When I am not acting or film-making, I teach myself LANGUAGES. Inspired by one of my favourite books ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’, I have been teaching myself French for the last three years, and am now proficient. I'm also teaching myself Spanish, German and Arabic.

    My other HOBBIES include singing (often with my sisters) and playing the piano. I'm also a member of a local young activist group, that campaigns and fund-raises for various projects to improve society and the world around us. And I spend hours drawing.

    I have so many AMBITIONS for the future. I want to do a lot more film and TV acting, I want to write books and scripts, and I want to become a polyglot and a humanitarian aid worker.
