Head and Shoulders!
Hi gang! Its been a while!
But not because I have stopped acting …quite the contrary! I have been a very very busy bee! I don’t know if any of you have noticed but you may have recognised a smiley face on your TV and Cinema screens of late and yes …that was me in the Head and Shoulder ad! Been quite a brazen thing I know but hey I had good hair so…. “Gonna Pull Tonight! ” Lots of people have been quoting that back to me but I think it has made some people chuckle which is a nice thing and its a great way to start 2017…having my face on TV!
The better feeling films gang have been at it again with more episodes of the newly named SUPERZEROES! So yes that’s right we are now no longer Powerless but SUPERZEROES! A much better name in my opinion and we are currently filming the first 3 episodes thanks to our very successful indie gogo campaign last year. Ill let you know when we have those to show you all!
Since I’ve been away I’ve also been doing a couple of very fancy Music Videos for rock gods Bury Tomorrow and Bear makes Ninja …check them out on the links below….
So a great start to the year all round and what with Spring being in the air I can just taste all the exciting projects this year has in store! For all you creative types – keep plugging away…and eventually you will get there!….Only going one way and that is UP!
Over and out!

Empire Awards 2015!
Well do I have some good news for you?! We only went and won a bloody award! Our short DIY Ghostbusters – (Where I play Dana) was edited into 60 seconds and has won the ‘Done in 60 seconds’ award at the Empire Film awards on Sunday night! So amazing for Better Feeling films and especially my good friends Oliver Jones and Rob Kenyon who dreamt up the DIY Ghostbusters idea together. They went to collect the award on Sunday. Here is the 60 second version…
And the boys picking up the award…. bless them! Ollie even mentions me!
So exciting for us all at (the now award winning) Better Feeling Films. Our DIY Jurassic Park is out soon and we are beginning promo on the next Powerless aswell So I’ll be donning my Red cape VERY soon! Exciting times.

DIY Ghostbusters?? Where’d it go?? ;)
So our link to DIY Ghostbusters has been taken down at the moment, mainly because it has been entered into the Empire 60 second film competition! It has made it through the first round for selection so fingers crossed I’ll have some exciting news on that front soon. After which the link will be straight back up.
Late last year myself and the guys at Better Feeling Films also filmed Jurassic park in 60 seconds although that one went a tad over…but ill have that up here ASAP for you guys to have a gander at just as soon as its ready.
More Powerless fun is scheduled for March – cannot wait to get back into my red cape….in the mean time check out what my uber talented friend Oliver Jones has come up with for the Prodigy … honestly this guy’s skills know no bounds…I am a very lucky girl to get to work with such a talented man.
More news for me on the acting front – I have recently found new representation with Reima Baker at Break a Leg management as my new agent. I am so thrilled to be working with Reima – she is an extremely cool lady and a powerhouse of knowledge about the industry and I think we are going to have loads of fun working together. Bring on 2015 and all the amazing opportunities it has to offer!

The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth!
Hope you are all enjoying the glorious British summer (for once) I have been busy auditioning and taking part in some very exciting projects. Including my debut on the big screen! Last month I shot a commercial for Mother’s Basement with production company Big Table that will be shown on SYFY, SFX and in cinema’s in front of the new Kick Ass movie! I have put a link to the commercial in the links page I think it’s hilarious in a kind of ‘Spaced’ style and I’m player Wonder Woman (sort of!) so maybe I have found my type – Superhero is all I seem to play these days!!
I also have a showreel now that is just in the editing process and will put this up soon for you all to see it is completed. It’s looking great and I’m so excited about it!
Anyway I best get back to it! Opportunities don’t make themselves you know

So it’s been a long time, missed me?! Rest assured I have been very busy in my quest to find great acting adventures.I have been getting some great auditions and opportunities lately and hope to be telling you good news on some of those soon so fingers crossed! Also, I’m very much ‘Power up’d’ by the fact the first Powerless is now finished and I have added it to my video section for you all to have a little peak! I’m really proud of it and so excited for the next installment where I will be coming up against an arch enemy – going in for fight training on that next monday so will let you know how that goes! We are hoping to film the next episode in the Powerless saga in July/August so keep popping back for updates. Meanwhile enjoy the show…

Fable – The Journey and Autumn News!
It has been a very busy few weeks with auditions a go-go and some very exciting projects in the pipeline! I am excited to now be able to tell you about the video game I was working on earlier in the year as it is now out there for you all to play and doing really well. I was so proud to be part of Fable: The Journey, and it is recieving great reviews from the gaming world! I learned a lot from the project including motion capture and voice over work playing the role of stand by Theresa and other roles and loved working with the Lionhead Studios Team. I should have some footage from the studios soon from our filming days so watch this space! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1FTK1qi5PA
Check out the link to know more about the game!
Just heard from Better Feeling Films that the premiere for Powerless is going to be on November 29th 2012 so that should be a lot of fun! And Lost in The Headlights the feature film in which I play actress Sam Chadwick is doing the rounds at the Liverpool Film Festival so look out for more news about that soon.
Thanks, as always for checking out my site!
Ciao for now

A Midsummer Night’s Dream/ Julius Caesar
Sooooo it has been a while but since I was last here and I remember saying to you that I was auditioning for lots of different bits and bobs but the reason I haven’t been able to blog for a while is those auditions were happily turned into rehearsals (Hooray!) for not one but 2 shows that I’ll be performing in over the summer. I am currently working on A Midsummer Nights Dream which is going to open next week actually (Yikes!!) and Julius Caesar. Both of which are from the award winning Principal Theatre Company and are shaping up rather nicely now I must say. I shall be playing the most magical of fairies – Peaseblossom in A Midsummer Nights Dream and playing my Guitar and singing A LOT throughout the show. Principal like to take a fresh approach to their Shakespeare pieces and this year Dream is set to the music of the Beatles -which is a lot of fun.
Julius Caesar, which like Dream is an outdoors production is to be played in the round and set modern day - looks like it is going to be a very clear and relevant portrayal of the classic original. I am playing a PA (Caesar’s servant) and a very nasty member of the faceless mob (Citizen 1) and playing my guitar and providing some music. It’s looking like a great show!
It has been a lot of work doing the two shows at once but the company are so wonderful and we are having such a great time with it.
We already performed twice in Reading as part of the Reading Music festival with a 1 hour version of Dream last week which was really well received, so this has made the group very excited for the real opening of the show. Come and see us if you can…check out the flyer for dates and venues … I can guarantee a great show and a lot of fun
Be in touch soon

P.S. Let me introduce you to Crimson Mist…
Hope you like it! This cool photo was taken recently by Rob Kenyon who can also be seen in Powerless playing the role of Supremo. More to come soon….

So! It has been a while, things in my world have been so busy of late I haven’t had a second to myself but now I can catch up with you all and let you know what I have been up to! Aside from auditioning constantly I have been doing some sword fighting as you can see from my latest videos uploaded on the video page. This is a scene with myself and Roger Bartlett playing Zorro and Elena in The Mask of Zorro, for the Directors guild Creating Violence workshop. We only had a morning to shoot this and edit it and I think the result is pretty good! Check it out. On the videos page also you will see a cheeky little scene from myself and James Boba which that I hope you will enjoy and my voicereel has now been uploaded too! So you can listen to lots of readings by me. There is quite a range on there, everything from The Worst Witch to Shakespeare so have a listen!
Since we last spoke I have also been filming more on Powerless and completed the publicity shots and ADR so hopefully soon that will be with us all. So excited! I’ll let you know when it screens!
Also since we last spoke I have been working with Lionhead on a brand new computer game. Motion capture is sooo much fun and a totally unique acting experience! I can’t tell you the project I have been working on or the character yet but I can say it was an incredible experience and hope to have more opportunities to perform in this way in the future!
Show tip: Sweeney Todd – Went to see this the other day at the Adelphi and it is such an incredible show with some outstanding performances … just take my advice and go and see it!
Now I better get back to my audition prep…no rest for the wicked! I’ll be in touch soon with my latest escapades!
Ciao for now!

I’m fresh back from a trip to New York and I have to say the big apple is my new favourite place. I would love to work out there one day…who knows!
Anyway back to the earth and specifically the UK , I promised I would tell all about my new film Powerless so here goes!
Powerless is the brain child of writers and directors Oliver Jones and Liam Delaney who are also the founders of Better Feeling films. Check them out on the link on this site. Powerless is a superhero comedy about four unlikely superheros. The gang’s leader – Supremo played by Rob Kenyon, Man Man played by Paul Nadin, Resurrection Boy played by Jamie Broadrick and Crimson Mist played by yours truly! Crimson Mist who is the only female superhero and the only one to actually have a genuine super power, she can teleport! She turns into a mist whenever she is in danger and to help her get the better of her enemies! Crimson Mist is a pretty kick ass girl as you will see in the first short film Powerless…the First!?? Well you never know we may be making more of them in the near future .
We have had a lot of support for this film including lots of sponsorship and I want to thank everyone who has got behind the venture and helped us raise funds for the film we are truly grateful to each and every one of you . We have also had backing from no other than Kevin Smith the cult film director and producer! Soooo exciting! We have nearly finished shooting the first short and so hopefully Powerless will be in your lives soon. I’ll keep you posted but in the mean time.
Over and out!
