Q - What was the first show that you remember seeing?
A - I remember seeing Matilda the year it opened with my grandma! I think that was my first one.

Q - What inspired you to get into acting?
A - Seeing people on the television and in the theatre just doing what they love made me realise that I wanted to do the same thing.

Q - Whose performance/s have had the biggest impact on you?
 - I think working with the legend that is Sharon D. Clarke was so inspiring and it was amazing to watch her be the fabulous person/actress/singer that she is.


Q - What is your favourite musical movie?
A - My favourite musical movie has got to be Les Miserables because it reminds me of when I was in Les Mis in 2015 and just because it is such a great film!

Q - What's the best piece of advice you've been given?
- Just to stay humble and dream big, and you will do amazing things if you put your mind to it.

Q - How was the experience of playing Adrian Mole in the recent musical production at the Ambassadors Theatre?
A - It was really fun to play the leading role in Adrian Mole. I didn’t really get a break apart from the interval in the show but I had a blast performing in such an amazing show!

Q - What would be your dream roles in the future?
- Definitely Evan Hansen. Fingers crossed!

Q - Away from the theatre what are your other favourite hobbies?
 I have an obsession with the TV Series Friends and watch it 24/7 if that counts!
