Below is a reasonably brief background to me and how I went from being an insurance sales worker to an established comedy actress and prankster…..
I grew up in a small village near Bristol, where I attended public school and gained straight A and A*sCSE and AS level qualifications, whilst also attending theatre classes for five years and starring in several musical productions, including “Oliver Twist” and “A Midsummer Night’ Dream”. I got my first job at the age of 17 in an electronics shop, working as an assistant.
Soon after, I undertook a training course in marketing and business management, gaining two advanced diplomas, followed by a full time sales management role for a prestigious insurance firm based in the South West. Whilst attending a runway show in Cardiff, I was scouted by a talent agency and soon after featured in several regional catalogues, modelling women’s fashions and accessories. This soon progressed into regular part time work, and eventually a full time role, when the insurance firm I worked for relocated to London. I was invited to keep my role and relocate with them, however this was not possible. I went on to enjoy a successful career in the modelling industry, having worked for established companies such as Playboy, Hustler and Page 3 of The Sun newspaper.
It was through experiencing personal tragedy in the form of a severely abusive relationship that I realised my true passion was not for posing and looking pretty in front of the camera, but in fact for entertaining, and making people laugh. Through my many contacts gained through my modelling career and previous theatre training, I secured small supporting roles in Season 4 of Game Of Thrones, Brit feature film “FILTH”, which also stars James McAvoy, and several independent films. I also proudly hold the title of Britain’s only female professional “Prankster”, having performed in many viral hidden camera pranks for popular YouTube channels. Several national tabloids including The Daily Mirror and The Sun have written features about my battle to overcome domestic violence and pursue my dream career in acting and comedy. I have also gained the attention online entertainment websites “LAD Bible” and “UniLad”, who have published several articles praising my comedy videos and career/lifestyle transition. My story also reached my local newspaper, the Crawley News, who I am now also a columnist for. I have also recently established myself as a freelance writer, regularly submitting pieces to several online and printed publications of various genres, alongside this website/blog, oBvIoUsLy. In 2016 I was elected as a spokesperson for the women’s charity, Refuge UK, speaking of my experiences of surviving domestic abuse, and encouraging other women to share their stories.
I currently work full time in the entertainment industry, and have been cast by CryptTvUk (The Uk branch of Eli Roth’s Crpyt TV as both an operations manager and actress/presenter. I have recently completed two features shot entirely in virtual reality, playing the lead female in both productions.
