A little bit about me!
My journey has taken me from loving books and Musicals as a child, a West End debut at the age of 14 in Annie, Musical Theatre, Straight plays, Comedy roles, Feature Films (quite cool telling my kids I was a Bond girl in Goldeneye!) TV Sitcoms, Cabaret, Concert tours, Commercials, Dubbing Cartoons (where all this madness began!) Singing in rock bands, touring with the one and only Alvin Stardust, teaching singing, running a theatre school in Essex, leading a choir, doing very posh gigs with my Tony Award winning MD and finally landing right here where I belong, chatting away to myself in my lovely studio at home in Chelmsford!
I’m often hired for the character, energy and warmth in my voice which has proved to be very suitable for children’s projects such as audiobooks, animations, commercials and most recently, a KS1 Bitesize video game for the BBC - but thanks to my East London roots, the brassy fishwife in me is never too far away! and I had a ball, f...ing and blinding as an ADR actor in Guy Ritchie's hit film The Gentlemen! Talk about one extreme to the other!
I do love the crazy character work and have had plenty of experience dubbing cartoons for major production companies and playing leading roles in classic cartoons such as The Wonder Pets, Millenium Actress (Anime) and The Untouchables of Elliot Mouse in which I sang the theme tune plus many other songs during the series
Thanks to my 30 years experience as an actress and a very chatty cabaret artist, I know how to communicate dialogue, how to approach your script, take your direction, be flexible and offer you my ideas and support. I'm the ultimate pro and a great team player, working with me will always be fun, productive and stress free.
My studio is broadcast quality and I've produced many a crisp, clear beautifully edited project from there, be it an audiobook, a corporate explainer, videogame, animation, E Learning project, IVR message or commercial.
Fully trained by the incomparable coach and top UK Voiceover Artist Tanya Rich and armed with a lovely shiny One Voice award for Best Female Performance on a demo, I am here at your disposal to turn your ideas and words into something really special.
...ooh! and a special mention to my three amazing grown up children, Lola, Zak and Finlay and my hubby Richard, who have to listen to all sorts of weirdness day in day out!
