    I did a few taster classes with the evening acting classes. However, I have been doing the Diploma Since April 2021

    WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THE ACTING FOR SCREEN DIPLOMA?
    Well, I’ve done a lot of theatre but I have done very little work in front of the camera. I have been to Central but it was mainly theatre, which was wonderful, but there was a camera shaped hole in the training. Also, in my book Acting (as with other arts like music, dance, vocal, and so on) are crafts that are a lifelong study.

    WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE COURSE?
    The teaching on the taster sessions was brilliant, I was introduced to techniques that were new to me. Like Meissner. I needed to retrain, get a fresh approach and work along likeminded actors in a team.

    HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO ACT?
    Yes, I have always wanted to act sing and perform, I feel so alive when I’m exercising the craft in anyway and it’s a gift. However, I’ve always put other people first and my dreams have been on hold. Until now

    WHAT’S YOUR DREAM ROLE?
    Poldark’s Mrs, That’s my dream role. But least said about that the better.
