I’m very lucky. After Upstairs Downstairs, which I loved, I got to appear on TV chat shows and talk to newspapers in the UK. I’ve been in TV dramas, short films, radio plays and on stage. Clips from some of these are on the Showreel page.
I was a little nervous for my first public speech but my TEDx talk shows how I believe we should never underestimate people and that there should be more great roles for me and for others with disability.
I’m always looking for new roles and working with creative people to tell all kinds of stories.

What’s it like to work with Sarah?
“Sarah Gordy has played characters in both television and stage plays of mine. She transcends type casting in so many ways creating characters who are original and exceptional. She brings to rehearsals an enthusiasm and concentration which energises all around her. She is a consummate professional.
Her body of work goes far beyond playing ‘characters who have Downs Syndrome’ and her wit and charm, plus a determination to get it right however complex the language is, make her a performer who can make the audience believe she is whoever she says she is. I would work with Sarah any time.”
