“I am extremely proud to say that I attended Lincoln Minster School from the tender age of 4 all the way to 18! The Minster School gave me some of the most exciting, challenging, and shaping years of my life that I will always treasure.
“Since leaving the Minster School, I went on to win a place at the prestigious London drama school; the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and studied for 3 years leaving with a BA Hons in Acting.
“After graduating, I have been working as an actor in various major television productions for the BBC, ITV and Netflix. I have been playing the recurring role of Aelswith; King Alfred the Great’s severe and calculating wife in the BBC/Netflix production of ‘The Last Kingdom’ throughout 2 seasons.
“My other television appearances include Lucy Hamilton in the BBC’s ‘WPC 56’ and Holly in ITV’s ‘DCI Banks’. I have also performed at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, appeared in the upcoming video game;’ Star Citizen’, recorded BBC Radio plays and filmed a short film called ‘A Very Ham-Fisted Steak Out’ which is due to be released in Spring 2017.
“I have Lincoln Minster School to thank for all of this as they nurtured my passion for theatre and supported me throughout my dreams to become an actor.”
