Hi there! I am London Based and am in my mid 40s, and can happily play Mums or Aunties for you - I also do a good line in Police Officers /Lawyers/ Counsellors/ Doctors etc. I'm particularly good with comedy roles but am versatile. My native accents are British RP (been here 20 years) but I'm a native Australian (born in Tasmania) so can give it a twang if needed! Other accents I can happily do as well general American or Cockney or Northern if needed. My showreel is on my profile which has two comedy scene and two more dramatic scenes. I've helped friends with self-tapes and so have quite a bit of experience.
