The Legacy Lives On!

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

The rehearsed reading I performed in before Christmas at Tristan Bates Theatre in Soho has now been picked up by The Hope Theatre in Islington.

The Legacy is a new play written by Angela Clarke inspired by the Columbia University Mattress Protest against Campus Rape in the US. Angela’s darkly funny play explores the issues of family politics, being trapped in suburbia and secrets that just wont stay secret.

The show runs from the 8th June to the 13th June from 7.45pm

Tickets can be found HERE

Tom Robertson Shoot

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

This morning before the first bird sounded I was on the London streets doing a shoot with renowned US Photographer Tom Robertson.

He wanted to capture the new riding scene in London as well as capturing the capital and all its charms.

He was shooting on digital and medium format and I can’t wait to see the results.

In the meantime here’s one of my favourite shots from his website

Working with old Freinds

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

Last year I did a shoot with Adidas for their My Girls campaign to get more women into sport.

My section of the shoot was all about cycling in London and the scene that is incorporated in.

It was fantastic to work with such a great team and really showcase the sport to its full potential.

Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call from the same production company asking if I would like to appear in their latest shoot the very next day.

I was delighted to be remembered as I had obviously made a good impression somewhere along the line.

Adidas UK were looking to showcase their new line of performance cycling wear which I have to say was incredibly comfortable. Sadly as the outfit was still in development stages I wasn’t allowed to keep anything – that would have come in really handy as well due to my upcoming cycle to Paris. But never mind…..

It was a great day working with professional cyclist Hannah Walker who is an actual star and at the ripe old age of 21 seems to be taking the female road cycling world by storm.

What a lady and what a day!

pics to follow when I’m allowed :-)

Triple Threat

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

They do say never to work with animals or children but in my latest shoot to celebrate the fashion collaboration between Hiro&Wolf and Kate Moross I was working with not one dog but three!

Both Amy Fleuriot (co-founder of Hiro&Wolf) and Kate (design guru) have Shiba Inu dogs which all featured in the shoot as well. They are absolutely awesome and I have to say it, very professional to work with – Taco, the lady of the bunch, could even Hi Five on command, most wonderful.

Filmed on location on the Heath it was a balmy 28 degrees – perfect for showing off the designs of these two fabulous women.

A great shoot and I can’t wait to see the finished images and video – rest assured I will be posting when it comes out but for now here’s a sneak peak.

Tweed Run

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

For those of you that don’t know the Tweed Run is a Metropolitan bike ride through the centre of London wearing your finest Tweeds on your most sporting vintage bicycle.

Every year the ride gets bigger and bigger and I have been lucky enough to be asked to be involved.

Their new galley on their website is up and running and definitely worth a visit if you like all things dashing.

Getting to Grips

  |   Uncategorized   |   No comment

I love social media. From an acting point of view it’s very good for keeping in contact with clients and networking with new ones. From a personal perspective my family and friendship group are spread out all across the world but are in the same room with the aid of the internet.

However, trying to build a website to incorporate social media links and widgets is frankly doing my nut in.

If you see a facebook ‘Like’ button on this post anywhere please push it, because I can’t see it anywhere!

I will not let this defeat me – I must forge onwards – until my brain bleeds……….

This is how I am currently feeling (Thank you Tamsin Greig for summing it up so perfectly)
