After a brief stint getting her hands dirty in a toilet paper factory in Bolton, Heather said 'Bye Bye' to bog roll and 'Hello' to Drama School. Whilst at Arts Ed London Heather played roles as diverse as The Wife of Bath (Canterbury Tales), Titania (Midsummer Night’s Dream) and The Beggar (Baal). Heather was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Bursary Award and was also awarded a prize from Spotlight for being one of the most promising performers.

Heather has just completed a sell out performance of her comedy double act show “’Er & ‘Im” at The Soho Theatre.
