I am a lively personality, and love to sing, dance and act at every opportunity. Although I am now retired, I certainly dont act or dress my age, I am up for anything (within reason). I have recently been successful with auditions for commercials and speaking roles. I especially enjoy taking on character roles such as my role as a 1968 council house tenant. I am flexible, attentive, a good listener, calm on set, and take direction well. I am happy to change my hair colour to suit any role. I have a good range of looks dependent upon how my hair is styled (please see photos). I also have autocue and voiceover experience.
