Biography

Amy initially studied Drama as an academic subject, gaining a 2:1 BA (Hons) degree from the University of Exeter. Realising that her future lay in performance she went on to study Acting at GSA Conservatoire (formerly known as Guildford School of Acting). Amy is a dedicated professional actress with a broad range of experience including the joys of touring (including get ins and get outs), theatre, film and television. She has a particular flair for improvisation, devising and comedy with excellent recall for accents. Amy has a strong mezzo soprano singing voice (eg Musical Theatre, Jazz, Blues, Classical and Folk) and good basic dance skills including tap. Amy has played many classic roles including Cleopatra and Antigone but is just as comfortable in an interactive pantomime situation. Amy is physically very fit, has a naturally cheerful disposition, an enquiring mind and enjoys being part of a team.
