ELEA – PAST

Many moons ago, I went to Brunel University and studied Drama, Film and TV. Wanting to pursue a career in acting, I went straight onto train at London Centre for Theatre Studies.

My mind full of wonder, I had a skill but no knowledge of where to go with it. With no clear direction, and no money to support myself, I got a job at the BBC and my acting life took a back seat. I forgot about acting for quite some time, and instead partied hard with the best of them.

In 2006, when debauchery was no longer enough for me, I took a sabatical and went travelling round the world. One of the best decisions of my life.

Afterwards, I returned to work but soon became disillusioned. I needed a new direction. I needed to return to my real passion, acting.

So, I got a job as an actress with a touring theatre company in Spain. It was perfect, I got to see more of the world plus I was finally doing something I loved. Amazing!

Since then, I’ve kept myself in the game plus I picked up more training over the years at The Cinema Room (Madrid), Actor’s Temple (London) and T. Schreiber Studio & Theatre (New York).

I spent a lot of 2012/2013 working on my own writing. I wrote a number of comedy sketches which I performed at various events.

Other theatrical credits include: Bad Habits (Ruth Benson), Playhouse Creatures (Mrs Marshall), Abigail’s Party (Angela), One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Nurse Flinn), and Blue Heart (Miss Clarence, Young Australian Woman).

On-Camera credits include Tea and Sangria (Clare) and Banging on the Brickwork (Penny).
