Credits: Care, Coronation St, Judge John Deed, Torchwood,Young Dracula, High Hopes (BBC Wales) & Crash (BBC Wales), Nadger, The Darkest Day
My time at the The Bridge was the most intense, exhausting 2 years of my life and I absolutely loved every minute of it. Training at The Bridge gave me the opportunity to work with experienced professionals who not only passed on what they have learnt but who can also employ you and guide you after you have graduated.
My first role out of The Bridge was in the BBC Drama, 'Care' which went on to win the BAFTA for best drama in 2000. I then appeared in episodes of 'Coronation St', 'Judge John Deed', 'Torchwood', 'Young Dracula', 'High Hopes' (BBC Wales) & 'Crash' (BBC Wales). I recently played the title role in the BAFTA Winning short film 'Nadger' and I also played the role of Slean in 'The Darkest Day', a feature for Lindisfarne Films. While at The Bridge I had an interest in voice and radio work and since then I have worked on several radio plays for BBC Radio 4 & BBC Radio Wales, this also gave me the leap into voiceovers and I have gone on to voice several idents for BBC including a campaign for the final series of 'Gavin & Stacey' across all BBC Platforms. In 2012 I auditioned for the Norman Beaton Fellowship for radio drama and received a runner up award.
Credits: The Killing of Sister George, The Taming of The Shrew, Ben Hur
Since graduating The Bridge in 2004 I have worked widely including plays at The Unicorn theatre, York Theatre Royal, The Octagon Theatre and The Oval House Theatre. In the past year I have played Childie in 'The Killing of Sister George' at The Arts Theatre, West End and Bianca in The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of 'The Taming of The Shrew'. The Bridge gave me a love of clowning and I continued this passion by going to Philippe Gaulier's clown school in Paris, using these skills in my most recent role as Sally Wiggins in Patrick Barlow's 'Ben Hur'.
Credits: 'The Tiger who Came to Tea', 'The Plotters of Cabbage Patch Corner', 'The Twits'
Since graduating from The Bridge Theatre Training Company in 2009 I've been working extensively in theatre, most recently completing 18 months playing 'Mummy' in the Olivier award nominated 'The Tiger who Came to Tea'. I enjoyed two successful West End runs with the show as well as an international season playing in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai which has been an incredible experience. Previous credits include two seasons at The Brentwood Theatre playing 'Greenfly' in David Woods 'The Plotters of Cabbage Patch Corner' and 'Roly Poly Bird' in Roald Dahl's 'The Twits' adapted for stage by David Wood.
This year I have also been cast in a film called 'The Underwater Realm' which is a film set almost entirely underwater, this has been a wonderful adventure and I have really enjoyed acting in such a challenging environment.
In the new year I have No.1 theatre tour of the UK coming up with 'Spot's Birthday Party' where I will be playing Spot's mummy 'Sally'.
It's been an incredible 4 years since I graduated and I couldn't have wished for a more grounded and thorough start than that which i've received at The Bridge... I regularly return and it always feels like I'm going home!
