Now in the final term of my first year at East 15 Acting school, I have just completed the infamous ‘Living History’ project that all East 15ers go through. This year we recreated the Bosnian Civil war in 1992-1995. The experience was overwhelming and truly unique. I fell in love with my character and now feel i can go deeper in my training but trust myself to come out of it safely. Our teachers really pushed us enabling us to become more mature as actors. I’m so glad i completed this project and i am now part of the East 15 legacy. It was unlike anything i’ve ever done and helped me to discover so many aspects of myself that never could be done through just text work. Thank you to everyone who made this last fortnight so unforgettable.
A short film I did this year with Hynesight Productions. We shot it all in one day and it was something really different to anything I’d done before.
This is a short film I acted in about Child Sexual Exploitation. It is a teaching tool to be used to make sure teenagers are being safe and not forced into anything they don’t want to do. My part was in the happy side to the story.
I am currently in my 4th week of training at East 15 Acting School and I really am loving it. It’s known for being a method school that often is a little bit crazy and that’s why it was the school for me. I could have done a foundation course at LIPA but after my audition at E15 I just felt so at home and so inspired by the enthusiasm of the students that I couldn’t see myself anywhere else and really wanted a place.
My training is already intense, tiring and extremely helpful. I’m discovered things about myself and I’m learning techniques to keep my body and voice healthy as well as develop my skills as an actor. The tutors are all very inspiring and I’ve met some great friends too. The time has flown by and I know my 3 years will be over before I know it!
I’m excited for the rest of the term and I’m eager to work hard and improve my skills.
In October of last year, 2012, I was part of a select few who filmed a choreographed sequence in Derren Brown’s most recent series. I was the waitress character. We were performing in public with a live client who could not know anything of the plan. I was not allowed to drop character or give anything away. It was a great shoot and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to doing more TV work in the near future.
I am now on the Extras database for Made in Chealsea. I have done several episodes now and am enjoying it. It requires subtle, naturalistic actors and has given me a completely new experience. I have never done extra work before but now can add it to my list of assets.
This Christmas Season I am lucky enough to be part of the extremely talented cast of $yn-Da-Rilla; The Urban Panto. I will be playing the brilliant role of Jeanie Dandini. She is feisty, loyal and so much fun to play! Written by Robin Kingsland and choreographed by Sam Golle we are all very excited about this production. Rehearsals are in full swing and I am sure the performances will blow the audiences away! It has everything a traditional panto has but with an added urban twist including awesome street dance and a current soundtrack!
