Getting to Know You...
Each month we will "Get to Know" one of our fantastic clients a little better by plonking them in our interview chair, (think a comfy chaise lounge rather than the famous Mastermind chair) and asking them to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences with us by taking our not too serious questionnaire. This month we "Get to Know"...

My laptop so I could watch Netflix! And look at pictures.

Good question, lets go for 9. I like a pineapple on pizza. (braces for outrage)
First Acting Job – Last Acting Job?
First job was Aladdin pantomime, last acting job was supposed to be Beauty in Beauty and the Beast (Wyllyotts Theatre) but #coronacancelscasting
What would your Super Power be?
I would love to be able to stop time so I could get some stuff done and live in my own little world for a while.
How do you relax?
Watching netflix, watching SNL or listening to music.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Mila Kunis! Or myself...
You are up on stage to collect your best Actor Oscar...You’ve thanked the usual ie Family, Agent, Film crew etc….Who else do you thank?

London College of Music
What is your most treasured possession?
A 21st birthday card from my Grandma!
What one piece of advice would you give your younger Acting/Performing self?
Please tell us of a career highlight?
Playing Audrey in As You Like It at Ludlow Castle- getting to rehearse and delve into Shakespeare while meeting some incredibly talented people, and meeting actors who have become some of my best friends!
Performance role model?
Do you have a favorite genre of the Performing Arts? Why?
Comedy, because who doesn’t want to laugh! And I think making people laugh is difficult and challenging, and it’s an involuntary reaction – which means if people laugh they genuinely find it funny!
Hindsight is a wonderful thing...Anything you would do differently, career-wise?
Only take jobs that you think you will enjoy, that you rate and make you feel awesome.
Many thanks to Chloe for her answers.
