My first job, a week after leaving Drama School, was for BBC Radio 4. In my 20 years
in front of the mic, which included a spell with the Radio Drama Company, I have
been both murderer and murdered for Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes, been a 12
yr old Australian and a middle aged German, played a Jamaican grandmother and been
attacked by bodice-ripping pirates in ‘Jamaica Inn’.
I have narrated for Women’s Hour and the OUP, and extolled the virtues of products
from Schwartz Spices to Riser Recliners.
I have also appeared in leading roles in the West End and on numerous television
shows, including leading characters in ‘Dalziel and Pascoe’ and ‘Peak Practice’,
I can also knit and make a mean pavlova and am a published author.
I derive enormous satisfaction from the high paced world of commercial voice work,
it requires commitment and artistry but in a condensed timeframe. Clients are on
a budget and therefore know exactly what they want when they hear it. After it’s
in the can and the client is happy, it’s a good job well done.
