What was your first job in the industry, was the acting industry always the plan?
The acting was always the plan. I always thought it would be just a dream but I have made it a reality. My first job was a play called Alice by Hart, based on Alice and Wonderland at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. I played the caterpillar.
