Biography

Jane trained at The Rose Bruford School of Speech and Drama and this was followed by many very happy years working in repertory theatres such as Ipswich, Harrogate, Cheltenham, Northampton, York and Colchester playing a wide variety of roles - Leo Bridgenorth in Shaw’s ‘Getting Married’, Ruby Birtle in Priestley’s ‘When We Are Married’, Viola in ‘Twelfth Night’, Connie in Alan Bennett’s ‘Habeus Corpus’, Jane in Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Jane Eyre’, Annie in Ayckbourn’s ‘Norman Conquests’. Also seven pantomimes in which she played Principal Girl - ‘Cinderella’ being her favourite and several number one tours. Interspersed with all this theatre were a number of television and film dramas - ‘La Cloche Thibetaine’, Tenko, Brookside’ ‘The Consultant’ and several situation comedies such as - ‘The Labours of Erica’ with Brenda Blethyn and ‘Never the Twain’ with Donald Sinden.

Then came a break of almost twenty years which were devoted to bringing up her three children but once the youngest had gone to university Jane was determined to get back into the acting profession. Her chance came when she was offered the role of Denise Goldberg in ‘A Big Day for the Goldbergs’ by Brian Daniels at the New End Theatre Hampstead which was thoroughly enjoyed by audience and cast alike! Eighteen short films followed this (some of which are up on ‘Youtube’) as something called a showreel has become a ‘must have’ for any performer – in the twenty- first the first century. Jane has been lucky enough to have made over one hundred television commercials and corporates in the course of her career.

She lives in West Sussex and enjoys walking over the South Downs, playing tennis and visiting the local theatres of Chichester and Guildford whenever possible.
