I have been working as an Actor for 38 years and began in the Bubble Theatre touring around London Parks and went on to the John Schlesinger Film YANKS with Richard Gere winning Evening Standards 'Most Promising Newcomer Award'. Followed on lots of TV work including Granada's Jewel in The Crown and spent many years at The National Theatre in Peter Halls Company gaining Olivier and Standard Nominations for Best Actress for Martine. My career has taken me through all genre and media - Television, Radio, Film, Theatre, Street Theatre, and just about to begin filming my first Web series to celebrate William Shakespeares birth. I have been lucky enough to play all stages of the National Theatre, toured to the USA and played the extrarodinary ancient amphitheatre of Epidavraus twice. Mercy is my first play and had its first produced reading in a room above a pub where it was very at home. This would be my first Edinburgh Festival EVER either as a visitor or performer and so would be very very excited to be with you all.
