Gabriella Shillingford was born and raised on the Caribbean island of Dominica. She moved to the UK in 2009 where she trained for three years at East 15 graduating with a BA in Acting.
Gabriella is now a permanent resident in London and has appeared in several theatre premieres on the London fringe circuit, actively enjoying the challenge of new work. Gabriella is also fluent in French Creole which has created opportunities to work professionally in the Voice-over/ADR industry in productions including Death in Paradise(BBC One), Hooten and the Lady(CW/Sky One), The Crown(Netflix) and Yardie.
She is very much proud of her Caribbean roots and was thrilled to be chosen to take part in the research and development for the National Theatre's SMALL ISLAND - due to be revived later in 2020.
