Biography

Francesca has performed many diverse roles on stage and screen in her professional career which has included everything from Shakespeare to musicals, children's theatre & dark political comedies.

Most recently she has been playing the role of 'Olga' in the critically acclaimed 'Women of Twilight' at The Pleasance London after transferring from The White Bear. Reviewers raved about the strength of performance from the all female ensemble and included What's On London which noted "Camaraderie prevails, not least personified in the charming and adept acting of Francesca Anderson as Olga."

She has also taken principal roles in many pantomimes with one 'Stage' reviewer noting, "Anderson presents an all singing, all dancing Jill (who) oozes stage presence".

Her most watched performance however must be as 'Fizz' in CBBC's ‘Tweenies’, which she played both on the BBC and the nationwide tour. Francesca is glad she brought such fun and colour to the lives of so many children and the odd student!
