    About me

    I am a 15 year old screen, stage and voice over actress who is passionate and determined to succeed, I love comedy roles. I recently became a member of the National Youth Theatre, at the youngest age possible. Personally, I am mature, confident, bubbly, excellent at improvisation and I take direction extremely well. Last year I featured in a voice over which was exhibited in Tate Modern by Mark Leckey and I was a radio presenter for a year highlighting up coming unsigned bands. I have a passion for travelling and one day I would love to work on the Canary Islands.
