I’ve been an actress for almost 30 years, working in television, film, theatre and radio drama. I’m also a sometime writer, editor, producer and director. As an actress I’ve appeared in many popular television programmes including; ‘Emmerdale’, ‘Crossroads’, ‘A Touch of Frost’ (opposite David Jason) ,‘Coronation Street’ twice and ‘Doctors’ three times now! I was also in Seasons 1 & 2 in the lavish BAFTA-winning ITV remake of ‘The Forsyte Saga’ starring Gina McKee and Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor Damian Lewis. I’ve done a number of television commercials over the years, including my most recent one for the P&O FERRIES campaign ‘To The Sea’.
More recently it was exciting to share the screen with Parminder Nagra last Spring on ITV’s ground-breaking new Birmingham-based police drama ‘DI Ray’ where I played a rather nervous downtrodden character. By complete contrast, I was also seen on the BBC’s flagship medical drama ‘Casualty’ as the formidable Dr Moira Murphy, playing an important part in Dr Ethan Hardy’s (the excellent and lovely George Rainsford) exit storyline over two episodes at the end of last year and the beginning of this.
I was also ‘heard’ on an important episode of ‘The Archers’ playing Shelley, who volunteers in a food bank, opposite Tracy Horrobin who has fallen on bad times. It made such an impact that the episode was chosen by the award-winning journalist and former BBC correspondent, Barnie Choudhury as one of his BBC Radio 4’s Picks of the Week!!
Other radio drama credits include multiple episodes of ‘Home Front’ for BBC Radio 4 and ‘Silver Street’ for the BBC Asian Network, several Woman’s Hour Drama Serials and many other radio drama productions both for the BBC and Independent producers.
I have an enormous amount of experience as a Role Player both for the NHS and in the Corporate sector.
My theatre credits are varied, one of my favourites was playing all the female roles in the sell out production of Jim Cartwright’s ‘Two’ for The Globe Theatre in Warsaw, Poland. More recently I was delighted to tour with Tea and Tenacity Theatre Company in ‘First Do No Harm’, a play dealing with the beginnings of the National Health Service and the Suffragette Movement.
