Dubai Diary 5 – opening night!

We have finally opened our show to Dubai audiences and it was amazing. The two shows today were largely school’s parties, which fits Romeo and Juliet very well. Juliet is the same age as the majority of the audience so I think that they can relate to a lot of the things that she goes […]

50 things about me (video)

Good day everyone, I thought that it was about time that I introduce you to my YouTube channel, Spitting Diamonds, I like being on camera, I and I like to talk about myself without interruption so this is a great medium for me :p (as you can imagine a blog about narcissism is in the […]

Hey diddly dee – an actor’s life for me

I’m performing this weekend and it makes me so happy. There are very few times in life when the real essence of me escapes the everyday shell that I wear, but when I am on stage (or in front of a camera) my life-force explodes showering over the unsuspecting audience. What I am saying is that […]

Top ten lines from Romeo and Juliet

I have been rehearsing Romeo and Juliet for months now for a tour in Dubai in February. However in order to perform in Dubai you have to get official government approval, we have been waiting on tenterhooks for ages, knowing that the whole thing will be derailed if the government decide that we are not allowed […]

Stripped back and ready for Christmas

  One cold, blustery evening in the lead up to Christmas, in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, a number of women, including myself, gathered in an underground bar, surrounded by glitter, tea lights and provocative underwear. Amongst many topics we discussed female empowerment, body image, artistic expression and why women take their clothes off […]

Anita – crazy lady

Please meet Anita. Previously a fifteen year old prostitute, she is now locked in an old fashioned repressive mental hospital and all her mental health symptoms have come to light. She is a character I played in the new show “wEight Off My Shoulders”, directed by Gabriele Paoli and produced by the Italian Cultural Centre of […]

Is it ok to like pretty things? Part 1

I recently made a YouTube video inspired by cleaning out my wardrobe. I love the video, I feel fun, upbeat and accessible. The dresses are pretty and they make me feel pretty. I feel like you can see me in the video. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I thought I would continue […]

What’s my age again?

Age is something that society seems extremely obsessed with, I don’t personally understand it, other than a form of judging people based on what they look like. In the acting industry it makes a lot of sense, we have to portray a character that is believable to the audience, which includes matching our physical appearance […]

Doing it alone………THE MONOLOGUE

My last post was about being an introvert so it seems appropriate that I would talk about preparing monologues – a very singular activity. I seem to be faced with a lot of monologue auditions at the moment. They are not deemed to necessarily be a very effective way of judging whether someone is right […]

Just me – the introvert?

I don’t know if I am an introvert, if I am I don’t know if I want to label myself. But I did a personality profile (was forced to by a boss) that did, in fact, label me as such, so I wanted to examine the world through introverted eyes (so to speak). A world […]
