I have recently been cast as an extra in the upcoming ITV drama series The Frankenstein Chronicles, starring Sean Bean. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4206804/

I was in a drama/dance group called Bright Sparks as a child and had roles in many plays in local venues and dance routines in local shopping centres. I also played the Ghost of Christmas Past in our school play, a modern take on A Christmas Carol, and got overwhelming feedback, in fact everyone in the class (including the teacher) said I scared them during rehearsals! My grandmother has been very involved in theatre her whole life, directing several acclaimed plays. She always encouraged me and my brother to act, and bought us puppets in our childhood, which we used to put on puppet shows for our friends and family. I have kept an interest in acting throughout the years, and to this day I enjoy directing and acting in independent short films with my friends.

Modeling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I'm only starting out, but I was born with one arm so I definitely have a unique look! I was inspired by watching Britain's Missing Top Model, especially by Kelly Knox who has an arm like mine. I think it's really important to get more disabled models out there. We need more models who are radically different looking to challenge people's perceptions of beauty. There is still such a stigma against disabled people in this country.

I also have wild curly blonde hair. My clothing style is inspired by anime characters as well as female rockstars like Stevie Nicks, Brody Dalle, and Shirley Manson.

I was an alto in my school choir (Regent House Grammar School) and we performed regularly, including a sold-out gig at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast supporting Amici and Ivan Black. That was definitely one of my proudest moments. I have also been in several bands as a lead singer and songwriter.
