Welcome to my web site

I am an actor dancer and a woman first.  I have green eyes and Downs Syndrome. I am different, that is good.  I have been a professional for over ten years and I am getting interesting work. My sister and lovely friends set up my website but I update it. I am not good with computers. Please have a look at what I am up to.

Trivia: My characters start with smell. Pamela in Upstairs Downstairs used ‘Blue Grass’ Sally in Call The Midwife used ‘Coty L’Aimant’ Have not had a ‘dirt and cabbage’ character yet

What’s it like to work with Sarah Gordy?

“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.”
