Female Performance in a Play in a Supporting Role: Clitoris/Sexual Instinct
in Bella Heesom’s play: Rejoicing at her Wondrous Vulva the Young Woman Applauded Herself
Ovalhouse, London, May 2019
I grew up in a leafy part of North West London, UK and am a proud alumni of Hampstead Comprehensive School, having graduated in the days when we called our political, passionate teachers by their first names, and were sent on school trips to Egypt and Russia. Playful anarchy sang through our art and drama departments where I spent the bulk of my time. I went on to the University of Bristol graduating with a BA honours in Theatre, Film & Television, followed by a postgraduate diploma in acting from Drama Studio London.
I’ve been pretending to be other people since I can remember and was thrilled when I got my first professional job aged nine with the amazing Janet McTeer as my mother in the Royal Shakespeare Company. Since then I’ve not lost the love of performing in all its gory and glorious colours. I’ve enjoyed working on further productions at the RSC, National Theatre and European tours. Guest spots include Cuffs & Dr. Who, and have been a series regular in two seasons of The Mysti Show and Hounded (also BBC). Film work includes Annetta in Franco Zeffirelli’s Sparrow and Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows part one - as the moody headphone wearing Italian waitress in the infamous café fight scene.
Guises I'm most fond of are Mariela Frushtuupulu, my heavily moustached Sardinian alter-ego and playing a Clitoris to Bella Heesom’s Brain in our upcoming project Rejoicing at Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself, Ovalhouse, May 2019.
