Profile Information

What I do:
I'm a hugely passionate and devoted actress and performer. I love becoming and experiencing the lives of other characters, and touching my audience with the feelings of those characters. I was ranked 8th in the world at Irish dancing and won many titles and championships over 14 years before giving it up to follow my dreams of acting.
A little more about me:
Well I am an extremely versatile actress that just loves what i do and has fun with exploring and creating every role I am cast for. Highly experienced and devoted to naturalist acting and realism. Passionate about becoming another person and living their life, experiencing their experiences and giving their story to an audience, whether the role is light and comedic, deeply emotional or psychotic and unnerving. I am able to change my appearance and tone dramatically depending on the role I am cast and have therefore been able to play a massive range of ages.
I am also skilled and experienced in 'epic' styles of acting including clown-like performance such as the physical Commedia Dell'arte. Extremely physically able and experienced with physical theatre and dance.

Qualified 'Riverdance' level Irish dancer, achieved 8th in the world placement in 2007 (before devoting skills to the study and practise of acting and higher performance).
Qualified 6 times for Irish Dancing World Championships and very experienced in live dance shows/plays. Able to modern dance and learn routines quickly. Speed and endurance swimmer.
Dog trainer and shower, appeared in Crufts 2010 and 2011. Singing qualities and some training. Also experienced at modelling.
Projects I’m working on:
Just finished working on my third superhero film - lots of action and fighting. I played the villain.. Naturally!

Just about to start a film up in Swansea in which i play the lead female - a lab technician with a very evil side to her.
