I have just retired from an incredibly successful 16 year career as a top personal trainer, nutritional therapist & HIIT/Fitness Instructor. I owned and operated two private studios in Essex, helped THOUSANDS of clients in the UK, Spain, NZ, Australia, Qatar & Dubai & specialised in body transformations!
I am keen on working globally and hold both a UK and NZ passport so feel free to arrange a meeting or audition via zoom or in person - let me solve the problem for you by bringing my skills to your project!
Are you an actor, director, writer or producer interested in collaborating or getting in touch with me about a film or TV project? Then send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I was always going to be a born entertainer with way too much energy!
From the age of three I was hanging off the washing line by one leg goofing around, dressing up as my favourite stars and pretending to act by putting on scenes for anyone who was interested in watching. In case I fell off that washing line and cracked my head open, I got thrown into gymnastics straight away at the ripe old age of three and then started dance classes doing ballet and jazz from age 5. Always a lover of sports as well as performing, I launched my own personal training business years later in 2005 and had an extensive waiting list for most of my PT career. I had two private studios in Essex for 8 years specialising in body transformations, pre and post-natal clients and 1-1/small group PT. I now focus on acting and writing full time. My work has included training clients 1:2:1, small group training, HIIT classes, international bootcamp/Body & Conditioning and HIIT classes via zoom (during the pandemic) and choreography and posing coaching for bodybuilders fitness and figure competitors.
My first taste of the screen was landing a commercial in a Mum deodorant ad at the age of 8 and soon after, I landed a big contract with a big New Zealand supermarket chain (New World Supermarkets) featuring in all their commercials for a 3.5 year period (13 TVC's in total).
Many more commercials followed for lots of different products including starring alongside Penelope Keith in a Heinz Tomato Soup ad then I got stuck into catalogue modelling and drama. This continued throughout my entire high school years where I played Mrs Bumble in 'Oliver', was a dancer in 'Guys and Dolls', 'The Threepenny Opera' and landed roles in many other NZ based plays and shows onstage.
I got loads of final callbacks for films including a Janet Frame film and continued to study acting doing Meisner for 2 years under the instruction of Michael Saccente who was one of Meisner's last pupils. Life changed and I moved to London in 2001 and studied with Jenny Melville at the London Centre for Theatre Studies and Tim Kent, Jon East (Killing Eve) and Taz Ayoub at the the Actors Studio, Paul J Lane at FACTA and this country now is my forever home.
I am a UK Equity Member and in 2019 I gained a Merit in my Intermediate ballet exam returning as an adult ballet student after a 25 year break from competitive dancing and exams!
I played my first part in a comedy skit as 'Stella' for Soccer 'Am when I worked at Sky TV in 2004 and also been a co-presenter in the past selling fitness products live on Ideal World Shopping television! I love working in films, TV and commercials and am known particularly for dark or comedy type roles.
I am available for commercials, TV and Film work. Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for auditions/self tape requests.

I have just finished filming my first speaking role in IMDB Feature Film 'Sparrow's Call' and am prepping for a role in feature film 'The End Games' filming in December 2021.
I got shortlisted in July 2021 for a fantastic role in the latest season of Killing Eve (NDA) and have done some great short films this year too playing main and other featured speaking parts. In addition, I have been cast to play a Russian spy in US action/thriller series 'Tradecraft' where filming will resume in the US once Covid-19 working restrictions are lifted.
I am also writing two short films of my own at the moment and am involved two short film collaborations with Caroline Ward, star from 'Host' (the huge smash hit 2020 horror film ) and another with a fellow actor and ex-marine. The latter project called 'Needle' bringing to light the destruction that can occur through addiction.
