Please tell us a bit about yourself and what you are currently working on?

I’m a Londoner living in New York working as an actress, making films, and writing theatre. Right now I’m missing home a bit; a feature I acted in two years ago, Elsewhere NY is an official selection at The East End Film Festival, but, unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it. Elsewhere NY has been doing really well this year at festivals, having screened at Whistler, Cinequest and Worldfest, where I was nominated for best actress. I’m really delighted that my hometown gets a little glimpse. But work calls! I currently have a film in postproduction, ‘Muscle.’ It’s a short, which is fully realized in and of itself, but it’s also a calling card for the feature. I’m really excited about it – it’s a tight, simple script driven by a female narrative. We shot it on the Arri with anamorphic lenses and we used a very specific limited palate embracing the richness of the environment, I think it will look beautiful.

Screening at Your First Film Festival – East End Film Festival

content-1_1024As I write this I am preparing to get on the 22:45 sleeper bus to London where I will be attending the East End Film Festival as someone who actually has a film screening at the festivities. It is a very strange feeling. When we were shooting Take It Back and Start All Over in December 2013 I had no idea where the journey would take us. If we were very lucky I thought that we might get into some small local festival or at the very least I would be able to host a screening in the Banshee here in Edinburgh but at no time did I even consider getting the film into a festival of the magnitude of East End.

Please tell us a bit about yourself and what you are currently working on?

I grew up on the boarder of South- East London, I spent most of my time chasing around a football and dreaming of more, amongst other mischievous things that boys get up to. I currently just finished writing my feature film which is set to go into production early next year. I’m also auditioning for various projects between New York and LA.
