Born in Battersea London, my mother was Northern Irish, my father was from Barbados. Originally I was going to be a barrister, but got side-tracked and ended up in the ensemble of the West End musical SHOWBOAT. Since drama school (Guildhall) and a very short time at university, I have fortunately been able to work in the industry for over forty years.
Some favourite work: DESTRY RIDES AGAIN (Donmar Warehouse - Olivier nomination, Best Supporting Actress) THE LION KING (Lyceum Theatre), LOVE ON THE PLASTIC (Half Moon Theatre - Time Out nomination, Best Actress) and in New York where I sometimes live and work, MEDEA (Company Collisions), MAMMA MIA (Nickolas Grace Productions) and TV Pilot MADAM MANHATTAN.
