How long have you been acting and with YAFTA Talent Agency?

I have been with YAFTA for 10 months. I’ve been acting for about one year now in various commercials, theatre productions and TV shows.

What do you love about the industry?

All the creative people. I love being able to travel to different countries and never stopping learning and gaining experience about people and myself.

What are the key skills/attributes you think someone needs to work in the industry?

Stamina and positive mental attitude. It may sound cliche but knowing that you can make it and believing in yourself is very important.

What advice would you give someone looking to get into film and TV acting?

Even if you hear “No” at the castings, there will be many more opportunities to come. Each failure should be seen as an opportunity to learn rather than to give up. It’s always better to show up rather than not to.

Try, try, try and try again. There will be a time when you will get the part.

Which three films or TV episodes would you choose to 1) Watch on repeat 2) See for the first time 3) Wouldn’t watch again

1. I would watch Bohemian Rhapsody again. It’s a beautiful compilation of great acting, deep screenwriting, and outstanding camera work, not to mention the powerful directing.

2. The original Mary Poppins film. Having recently seen the wonderful sequel featuring Emily Blunt, it’s on my list of must-see films.

3. Im not a big fan of romantic comedies, so probably one of those.
