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

I have been acting since I was 4 years old and have been signed with the very lovely YAFTA since October 2016.

What do you love about the industry?

The thing I love about the industry is that anything is possible. It is not always the case that the most talented or most deserving get the jobs, there are so many other factors involved. BUT if you love what you do and you persevere, you have the power to make your dreams come to life. It’s cheesy but pretty magical.

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

Thicker skin than Gemma Collins and more confidence in your talent than Gary from Geordie Shore.

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

1. Have a great skill that will earn you money while you are ‘resting’. 2. Make your own work. It is the most satisfying and rewarding thing you can do and work breeds work.

Which film or TV episodes would you choose to a) watch on repeat b) see for the first time and c) wouldn’t watch again?

a) Fleabag or This Country b) Sex Education on Netflix c) The Brothers Grimsby
