My most recent venture is playing Wendy Kinkard in The National Theatre Company’s production of ‘Great Britain’ at the Royal Haymarket Theatre, London. You might have also caught me in Giuseppe Tornatore’s film, ‘The Best Offer’ appearing alongside Geoffrey Rush and in Ricky Gervais’ ‘Life’s Too Short’, the BBC’s, ‘All The Small Things’ and ‘EastEnders’ and Channel 4’s, ‘Cast-offs’.
Born in Australia but now with an international career, I began as a dancer. Training in Australia with the Beryl Ellis Dance Studios (now Ultimate Dance) and then later the University of New South Wales.
In 1999 I made my début in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Moulin Rouge’. Then travelled to England to study Shakespearean and Jacobean Theatre at LAMDA.
Years of acting internationally in Theatre, Film and Television have followed and occasionally l return to contemporary dance. I can now say I’ve worked with some the world’s leading dance innovators, Caroline Bowditch, Marc Brew, Sue Healey, John ‘cha cha’ O’Connell, Shaun Parker and Christina Tingskog.
I wish to break away from tightly defined concepts surrounding the sort of work people “like me” make or should be making and who we should be making it for…
I did not get into the arts to reinforce society’s prejudices.
