Having spent my first 40 years in Leeds I gradually moved slightly further north and have lived for the past 25 years between Harrogate and York. An interest in the theatre since the age of 10 led eventually to taking part in many amateur theatrical productions, in my 40’s and then a hiatus until I was asked to play a small part in the film Innocent Crimes, which gave me the desire to follow in the steps of my actress daughter, and was quickly followed by a featured extra part in the first of Guy Richie's ‘Sherlock Holmes films. A desire to improve my Film and TV techniques led me to school to achieve this goal. I have since appeared in a TV series and 2 feature films, the latest of which will be released this Spring. I have also just started to do voice work and have been commissioned to do and audio book and animation in the last 3 months. I am hoping Stage 32 will help me to learn more in order to progress this career.
