Having met some of the greatest and most famous actors of all time... Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Ian McKellen, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie...
to name drop just a few...
I was intrigued by how natural and 'down to Earth' they were in real life, which, to me, amplifies the incredible skill they have to take on such authentic alternate persona
in their acting roles.
So, I studied their films, their scenes, to understand what they were doing that made them stand out from the rest, what made their characters so real.
I joined an acting improvisation group,
which gave me an opportunity to explore many different characters and train my mind to think fast and creatively, learning from others and sharing ideas and passion for my new 'art' form.
I have also had experience as a background actor in major feature films. Working in film studios and on location, which was exhilarating and inspirational to say the least. I enjoyed every moment of being on the film set and it gave me a hunger for more. Plus a wonderful education for me as I was able to watch some very talented famous actors rehearse and perform up close.
I was given my stage debut in a fabulous production of the Charles Dickens classic
"A Tale of Two Cities" by Regent Rep Dramatic group at the Regent Theatre in Christchurch, in which I had the honour of playing the lead role of Sydney Carton. As a huge fan of Charle's Dickens, this was a role I shall always treasure.
More recently I was thrilled to explore the characters and genius writing of Noel Coward when I was awarded the lead role of Elyot Chase in "Private Lives" by Scaramouche Theatre Company.
A role for which I received great critical acclaim.
Having a very positive and spiritual outlook on life, I think all things happen for a reason and everything is a stepping stone to something better.
I believe we are given dreams for a reason, and whether they manifest or not depends on how much we really believe and feel it.....SO...
