I attended an Acting and Stage Combat Course at Drama School for 3 years, where I trained in over 10 different Weapon systems, Martial arts and Un-armed Combat. I enjoy choreographing gritty fights for film, my favourite fight of the moment is the street fight in Kick-Ass 2. Acting on Camera is a passion of mine and I am always working with the same crews because I make their jobs easier for them. Last year out of the 4 months I was in the country, I Acted in 8 Films, 3 Commercials, 1 Internet commercial and 1 Presenting Show. In 2014 I lived in a 5* hotel in Greece, where I was performing as a Singer/Dancer, at The Blue Lagoon Village for 7 months. I write my own music on the piano with vocals and record often. Please contact me for more information, at chrissie.chanel@gmail.com My Acting Showreel and Fight Sequences are under my videos; here you will also find my Singing Videos. I am represented by 1st Talent Agency (Kensington, London) Spotlight: 4853 4535 1389

I spend lots of time in the studio recording my own compositions on the piano and vocals.

I sing at The Black Horse in Rottingdean.

7 months as a singer/dancer at The Blue Lagoon Village in Kos/Greece. Performed in a number of shows including MTV, Disney, Broadway, Lord of the Dance, Decades, Oscars, Legends and Abba.

In the Disney show I was Sebastien (sang under the sea), Elsa (sang let it go) and more.
In the MTV show I sang Adele, lady Gaga, Beyoncé and more.
Lord of the Dance I sang a Celtic song called Suil Elron.
In Decades I sang songs from the 1950's through to the 90's.

My favourite styles to sing are RnB and House music as they best suit my natural voice.

I have been writing my own music with the Piano since I was 12 years Old. I am very much my own person with my own style.

I studied Musical Theatre at The Brit School Of Performing Arts for four years where I had lead singing roles in my final Major Shows.

I sang as part of the Gospel Choir in Secondary school, where we were abe to perform solo's to the whole school.

I performed on the BBC's radio show, "Friday Night is Music Night" as part of a choir.

I had private vocal sessions with Mark Delisser where we sang Old School RnB.

I sang with the Chisenhau National Opera company in 2002 where we performed "Tosca" at the Fairfield Halls.
In 2001, we performed at the Royal Albert Hall performing "Turandot".

I attended The Betty Wivell Academy where I started taking Ensemble Singing Lessons from the Age of 10, where we performed many numbers with many complex harmonies to open audiences.

I have a GCSE in Music.

I have performed at East-15 Acting school where I wrote a political song and taught it to 4 other students with intricate harmonies. I accompanied the song with a piano with my own composition, conducting and singing at the same time.

I am currently un-signed but have plenty of experience in a studio and am looking forward to saving up for my own studio in the near future.
