Just a quick one – as some of you may have already seen on social media, I have new headshots! Taken by the brilliant Meurig Marshall.

Passages to Somewhere & re-brand!

Over a year!?!? time flies huh?

As you may have seen, I’m in a new play! Passages to Somewhere takes place on a cruise following four guests; mother and daughter Jean and Beth, and Father and Son, Ray and Will) and two staff members (Kevin and Brian) on a seven-day cruise on “The Spirit of Hope”. I play Beth and tickets are now on sale for performances 20th-24th March at the Hen and Chickens Theatre.

In other news, I’m having some new headshots taken on Monday. As much as I love my current headshots, they were taken in 2014! So new pics are way overdue!

Finally, I played a very small part in a film called The World Can Wait, which was produced by Moggy Productions who also produced As We Are in which I play Hannah. You can watch the short film below:


It’s been a long time since I updated so here’s a quick one:

As We Are, an LGBTQ+ sit com which was released last year and in which I played Hannah, has received numerous awards. It’s also being shown on Latest.TV and is next being shown on Friday 24th February at 9pm & midnight. The four episodes can also be watched on YouTube.


I also return to the world of Pathfinder Legendens, this time playing elf Laori Vaus in “Curse of the Crimson Throne: Escape from old Korvosa” which is released next month. It was a pleasure to work with Big Finish after working on 2015’s Pathfinder Legends “Mummy’s Mask” series.

In addition, I have also recorded voiceovers for Fiat and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.

“Mary, Mary”, Beer Blogging and a busy few months

Just when I promise myself I’ll make more frequent blog updates, I get busy and suddenly two months have gone by.

Well what’s been happening? “Mary, Mary” for one! Over two years of dreaming on this passion project and we finally premiered it last month at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre. Female Arts gave us a lovely four star review and we’re looking into how we can take this project forward.

You can also read my blogs about beer on craftbeerworld.co.uk as I’ve started working for the site as a freelance writer.

And check out the trailer for As We Are, a web series that we shot in August in which I play Hannah:

In addition, I’ve been teaching singing, producing voicereels, and working on a lovely voice job which I hope to be able to reveal in the new year!

Wondering & wandering in the USA

So I’ve been off adventuring again. This time in the US of A.

I have dual UK/US nationality and haven’t been over to the ‘states to see my family since 2013. In the last few months, I’d been having a type of homesickness for them which is why I decided to plan a madcap journey. All over the US, seeing both family and some friends from East 15 Drama School.

In among my travels, I made it to Los Angeles for the first time ever. When I graduated from Drama school, I made a promise to myself that I would make an excuse to visit LA and see if there was any work/networking/career development I could do whilst there. Although I only spent a couple of nights in Hollywood, I managed to fit in a session at Actor’s Alley workshops. I would really recommend them. They run evening workshops with casting directors and provide sides for pairs of actors to read for feedback. The prices are fairly reasonable and the sessions are really nicely run.

Being away was also a great way to get some good research done for “Mary, Mary“. After reading quite a lot of work by Mary Wollstonecraft (as well as Claire Tomlin’s fabulous biography and, of course “Frankenstein”) I decided to go for a more modern, easy holiday read. I got myself a copy of Bee Rowlatt’s “In Search Of Mary” a brilliant read I would recommend to anyone, not just Wollstonecraft fans. I guess it’s a sort-of feminism/travel book which sees Rowlatt walking in the shoes of her idol Wollstonecraft, firstly to Norway to retrace Mary’s “Letters written in Sweeden, Norway and Denmark” and then to Paris, both with her baby Will in tow. Of the many nuggets of wisdom that Rowlatt ponders (some from Wollstonecraft, some her own…), Rowlatt mentions that reading is more immersive when you’re a little lonely. Traveling on my own around the USA (allbeit to visit people I did know!) Was really useful in this regard. In the week since getting back I’ve barely read a page!!!

Neil Gaiman also says that being bored is one of the best ways to get inspired. So when I came back from holiday to find that my regular freelance day job had dried up, I decided to see it as a good thing for my acting and theatre making career. That and they say that “poverty inspires”!

The other news is that I write this on a train back from Brighton having been rehearsing for a really fantastic LGBTQ+ web series which will be shooting in August. More details as I have them but I’m really excited about this script and am so excited for people to see (and for me to see) the finished product.

So here’s to loneliness, boredom and poverty not being necessarily negative things!

And anyway – I have plenty to do with “Mary, Mary” on the horizon! Make sure you get your tickets for our premier showings on 20th & 21st August at 2pm.

Mary, Mary at the Camden Fringe – Tickets on sale now!

Again I’ve been lax in updating my blog – apologies! I’ve been working on a special project that has finally come to fruition!

Tickets are now on sale for the premier of “Mary, Mary” at The Lion and Unicorn Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe.

I setup my theatre company Theatre Mensch over a year ago in order to produce projects I feel passionately about. One project was an idea I had quite a few years ago.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is possibly my favourite book. I had heard of Mary Wollstonecraft before, but it was only a few years ago that I finally made the connection that Mary Shelley was born “Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin” and was Mary Wollstonecraft’s daughter. After reading a little online, I decided to read a copy of The Life and Death of Mary Wollstonecraft by Claire Tomlain. I was fascinated by Wollstonecraft’s amazing and anachronistic life and wondered, had Wollstonecraft lived to see her daughter Mary Shelley grow up, what she would’ve made of her? The original drive behind “Mary, Mary” was to see this amazing Mother and Daughter meet.

Now in the devising process, we still aren’t sure exactly what our “Mary, Mary” show will look like but we’ve had some great ideas. The more discoveries we make about Mary Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft’s lives though, the more fascinated we are and driven to share the stories of these amazing women’s lives with our audience. Although our play won’t be a full biography of both women (that would not be a very entertaining piece of theatre) we do hope to inspire our audience to find out more about these brilliant women.

Character Reel

It’s all gone a bit quiet recently, but that might be because I’m off on holiday in just under two weeks! I’m heading to Thailand and Cambodia and having never been to the far east (always wanted to though) I am pretty damn excited!

I’ve used this quiet time to finally put together a reel of samples of the different characters I played on “Pathfinder Legends: Mummy’s Mask”. Take a listen:
