    About me

    SAG/AFTRA ELIGIBLE. Cast in the upcoming feature Dragonman Adventures of Luke Starr which is currently in Pre-Production. Cast in a leading role alongside Mischa Barton, Kevin Sorbo and Antonio Sabato Jr.

    Originally from a small town in the UK. I moved to London in 1993 to study at a theatre school called The Anna Scher Theatre alumni includes Dexter Fletcher and Asa Butterfield. It is now known as the Young Actors Theatre School. I have performed as a catwalk/dance model in many fashion/runway shows, and worked as a hair model for Wella, Sebastian and Tresemme. Competing as a beauty queen in the late 90's gave me the opportunity as a host of the pageants, to then work on TV shows as a presenter. My first debut was on a UK Channel CH4 comedy called Best of British (comedy lab), I gained experience working in Football, Motorsports and Winter Sports in hope of becoming a sports presenter. 2003 I decided to further my studies in Performing Arts and in 2005 I auditioned for a stand-in/double role, this was my first feature, and I found that my skills were enhanced by working with elite professionals already at the highest point of their careers. So I continue to this day to work in this field during my downtime from auditions. I believe that everything we do in life is for a reason and its a learning path providing so many skills. I also enjoy writing and creating my own work. I deem myself as a professional actress with over 25years in the industry experience. I do not work as a supporting artiste or extra. Should you wish to consider me please contact me via the agents in my profile.
