Yemie Sonuga


Hi, my name is Yemie. I am a Nigerian, Canadian, and American, West End Actor. I have a MA from the Royal Scottish Conservatoire with professional experience in Film, TV, Theatre and Voice-Over.

People who have worked with me say I am encouraging and I aim to build an environment of support and empowerment.

I love working with other actors. I am available for rehearsing scenes, workshops or classes, as well as auditions. I am happy to give feedback if wanted as well as break down scenes, character, relationships, and atmosphere.
