Visit from The Future’s Rosie


Great to have visit from beautiful Rosie and family who came to Manchester where I’m rehearsing for Crocodiles – a new play at the Royal Exchange. Rosie’s dad, Tom, writes the award winning blog The Future’s Rosie. Highly recommend checking it out and also joining the Facebook page – the posts of Rosie’s smile for the weekend are a joy to see. We’re big fans!

Rehearsing Crocodiles

We’ve all been working hard in rehearsals for Crocodiles at the Royal Exchange Theatre but it’s been a lot of fun too. I feel so lucky to be working with such an amazing cast. We have great times together.

‘Crocodiles’

Its happened, I am going to play a woman ‘Matilda’ and it is nothing to do with disability.  ’Crocodiles’ written by Lee Mattinson and directed by Ping Ng Choon at The Manchester Royal Exchange Studio Theatre.  My agent is really excited because it is such a good play and it will get attention. I am really happy.  Only 90 seats though.  A friend said I dont put up enough photos so here is one.  It is not ‘Matilda’ though, I will look very different then.

‘Call The Midwife’ Ep 5 PBS Masterpiece Theatre 27th April

Sorry this is late. I am rubbish with my website. Hope you see this episode.  Heidi Thomas also wrote Upstairs Downstairs and she wrote this episode with me in mind.  The story is very good and I am really proud to be in it.  It also introduces Colin Young a sensitive young actor. Here is a behind the scenes photo I cant find the official one. Here is a link to a UK national newspaper The Mirror (cut and past link please) I cant make it live, sorry http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/call-midwifes-most-controversial-storyline-3127269
