What got you into show business?
I went weekly to ballet and a local theatre school from a young age - I think my Mum just sent me for good exercise and to meet other kids - But it became quickly apparent that I actually loved it and felt so at home doing it. From that point I knew deep down there was no other path for me really.
What's your favourite character you've played?
Hard one - Can’t decide between Elphaba in Wicked or Elle in Legally Blonde - Two equally awesome, strong women!
What's the best thing about performing?
Firstly I love being able to work as part of a team - Working with a large group of talented actors to create something special.
But mostly I love the escapism - Having that ability to just get completely lost in another character and another world, and It’s also amazing when you see how many people you are affecting - When you look out into the audience at the end and see the smiling faces and clapping - For 2 hours or so you have been able to take people on a journey and make them feel something, and allowed them to escape too!
