Returning to acting after a break to care for my late partner.
Formerly full time freelance character actress, just as happy delivering dialogue in front of camera as I am wandering around in the background.
I seem to have a natural affinity for comedy, due to my expressive face, comedy timing, and deadpan delivery.
Former prison officer so always willing to offer technical advice for prison scenes, especially for safe and authentic control and restraint procedures - most recently on Top Boy.

I qualify for Spotlight but don’t pay for it any more. I am a free agent and am very happy that way.

I have a versatile look and also have 2 dogs available for on set work if needed.
Current DBS certificate


Extras experience

Previous speaking roles

I have been a freelance supporting artist for 8 years now, with background and walk on roles in high profile television and feature film productions


Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work

I have taken part in several photographic shoots and am very comfortable working in challenging outdoor locations. I have no problem working naked.
Most recently featured as the face of CRUK world cancer day charity shop campaign.
I was a hair model during a production of Celebrity Scissorhands.
I am happy to have make up applied for a role and can also apply my own as directed
Nudity not a problem.

TV & Reality

I have appeared on quiz shows Fifteen to One, Judgemental and The Weakest Link and am very at ease in that environment. I won the Weakest Link and was the strongest link for many of the rounds. I also won my first Fifteen to One show and accrued enough points to appear in the Grand Final.
Happy to assist in quiz production for run throughs etc.
I have also taken part in pilots for Big Brothers Big Mouth and Deal or No Deal when both were pre-production.
I regularly contribute to discussions on LBC radio and am calm, confident and articulate with a sense of humour and ability to tackle any subject head on.
