Working on music video shoots is one of the best experiences for a working actor. Bringing an artists music to life in what is essentially a short film and seeing the final edit is always a thrill. Wolf is the new single from upcoming British artist ‘Lion’ and the story concept was told in flashbacks to the singers character’s childhood in a disruptive, domestically abusive home. Shot over two days in Surrey and Bournemouth, England the resulting video (Universal Music Group) is a beautifully told story of triumph over adversity.
Being busy as an actor is NEVER a bad thing and these past few months have been super busy, with two exciting projects in production and some great smaller projects completed.
One of my favorite’s has been playing Helen Maxwell in the movie version of the ‘Clock Tower’ survival horror computer game, written and directed by Director Ruth (Ladarius Winns) working on a horror film has been oxymoronically SO MUCH FUN, principal photography has started but for now here is a sneak peak at the trailer.
Next up I’ve been back working with the awesome Jerome Curtis (Lights on Films) on a new digital series 108th, playing the Chief of Police – totally up my alley. Here is a snippet.
Last up, I worked with the innovative Reelarc on this scene titled ‘One Day at a Time’, focusing on addicts and the affect of their addiction on loved ones. You can watch a clip here.
An actors life is unpredictable and bloody hard work but then some days you get asked to do such a fun gig and you realise you have the best job in the world. This is my character ‘Annie the Analyser’ for the new mobile app Invidme.

Of all the awesome things that comes with being an actor, playing dress up may just about be the best – turning up to set and being transformed into someone else, with a different job, a different life is a privilege enjoyed by few #blessed
Since last year myself and a very talented bunch of actors have been working on ‘The Circle’ A thriller mystery about two half sisters on a mission to find out the truth about their mothers death. And to my great joy I get to play the ‘Baddie’ – a dual character Ruth – a major plot twist! In my scenes I get beat up, stabbed, shot and generally thrown around the set daily – but I’ve always been a badass -so was just an ordinary day at the office 😉 Working with a great director and so many amazing actors all bringing their unique styles to the ensemble makes you realise how lucky you are to be a working actor in New York City. Stay tuned for updates the first episode is imminent! @thecirclewebseriez

Working as a full time actress in New York City has been a dream come true, in this past year I’ve met and worked with so many amazing fellow actors, directors, producers, writers and visionary’s and I’m so happy to say that I have many more projects in the pipeline filming over the next few months. This is just one of them ‘The Letter’ by The very talented Jerome Curtis and Lights On Films, check out the trailer here!
So monologues always terrified me as an actor until, that is I took a class with the wonderful Paul Fouquet of Alyssa Meyers Casting, four weeks later and I love monologues – who knew eh, this one is still my favorite – from Mike Bartletts play ‘Bull’ and the cutting and fearless character Isobel – after I presented it for the first time to class my feedback was simply ‘well you nailed that’ …..high praise indeed from Mr Fouquet
So after 6 months in the Big Apple and many wonderful acting classes later (massive thank you T Schreiber Studio) I am finally officially a working actress in New York City with my first stage show this weekend, off off Broadway! – the fabulous comedy ensemble that is ‘A Sketch of New York’ at the long reputed ‘Producers Club’ and numerous film and TV projects in motion – the life of an actor is looking good – long may it last…
