Acting experience

Previous unpaid speaking roles

  • English

  • UK English

I have done a number of extras and supporting roles. This year (2014) I was an extra in York film 'Psyched' (guest-starring Ricky Tomlinson aka Jim Royle in The Royle Family) playing a Goth at a seance, and also a theatre audience member. In November 2012 I played Ulicia (main speaking role) in episode 2 of a short fantasy web series 'Legend of the Seeker', and Jack's Mother (supporting speaking role) in York St. John's University student short film 'Grandad and I' (2013) trailer:

I acted as two different zombies in short film Tao of the Dead (2011) (and according to the director I was the best zombie actor!). I have done other short video work such as solo secret agent action scenes for a clothing business and dancing in an industrial dance video.

As a photographic model I sometimes play conceptual and 'character' roles (often dark characters) and am required to act for the camera. I have played many characters including: Joan of Arc, woman being chased through woods (once film noir style, once horror style), Steampunk jail breaker, mutilated animal, angel in love with another female angel, secret agent, vengeful doll, hillbilly waitress, hippy, wood nymph, sorceress...

I have done first person historical reenactment interacting with the public in role, including two weeks as a Tudor dyer at Kentwell Hall Tudor Reenactment talking with school parties and members of the public in role (the year 1538).

Prior to all the above I have been in two secondary school plays (including playing Ethel in The Burston Drum) and participated in short sketches whenever the opportunities happen to arise (socially and on stage),
