What a week it's been - the first films I have directed for 'The Beatrix Potter Trail' web series have won an award at New Delhi Short Film Festival.  I wish I could have been there but I am also having an amazing time playing Miss Prism in 'The Importance of Being Earnest' at the Brockley Jack Theatre so you can't be in two places at once.  I am happy to say there will be more news about 'The Trail' soon!

 The Beatrix Potter Trail

is a new web series that I have directed and filmed which stars professional actor and relative of Beatrix Potter, Nadine Hanwell.  In the series Nadine retraces the steps of Beatrix Potter in Victorian London looking at her beliefs, influences and family history.  Our first three episodes are live on YouTube on Nadine's channel to which I have hopefully put a link here

 Precious Little Things has been released on Amazon Prime! 

I play the role of Shirley Travors in 'Precious Little Things' the latest feature film from Al Carretta's Nightpiece Media and it is now available to watch online at Amazon Prime - this is the first film I have appeared in that has been released by Amazon and I am thrilled!  Here is a link to the film's site -

PRECIOUS LITTLE THINGS 

 I have often looked longingly at other colleagues whose work has been released on Amazon so this is great.

 

 
 

 

 

 Liberte, Noor Inayat Khan has a new screening!

I went to Wanborough this weekend for the screening of 'Liberte' - this film, about the life of  World War Two SOE agent Noor Inayat Khan has gone all over the country for exhibition in places with links to SOE (Special Operations Executive).  Wanborough Manor was a school for secret agents and Noor studied there - her reports were excellent.  It was amazing to see 'Liberte' again and to walk in Noor's footsteps.  I hope one day everyone knows her story.

 

 

 

 

The screening was held in Wanborough Great Barn, the oldest wooden building in the UK. So much history.

 

I don't think Noor's story will ever leave me

 

 

Run Hide Tell

is the new feature film from the Horror master Ray Brady.  I play the role of Mary.  It will be out in a few months but here is the poster! 

 

 

Precious Little Things Premiere! 

My new feature film 'Precious Little Things' is going to be screened on 22nd August at Nightpiece Film Festival in Edinburgh. I really hope to be there.  I play Shirley Travors. Here is the poster!

 

 

 

Toby is about to be released!

Toby is the new short film from Professor Stamen Productions I worked on last year in Cambridge and it is almost finished.  I can't wait to see it!  Here is the poster. I play the role of Helen!

 

 

 

Cannes 2017

 I have just returned from the Cannes Film Festival and it was amazing!  I saw so many great films and met amazing people.   On my last evening there I attended the Premiere of Sofia Coppola's 'The Beguiled' which I loved.  Well back to reality!

I'm in the Press - please read my interview in IndieActivity!

I'm so grateful to IndieActivity for their great interview.  Brought up a lot of memories!  Here is the link to it - IndieActivity Interview with Kate Sandison

 

 

 

 

Support City of Spies!

Last summer I did some filming in Vienna for the first time on the feature film 'City of Spies', a cool new Spy thriller.  About half of it is 'in the can' as we say but now there is an Indiegogo campaign to finish it.  You can see the trailer here and it's great! A link to the Indiegogo campaign is below.

Pieces is Online! 

You can view my new short film 'Pieces' at this link here - I know there are more plans for 'Pieces' but for now here it is!

 

 

 

Beeston Film Festival

 Here are a few photos from Beeston Film Festival last week.  It was a lot of fun and 'Pieces' got a great reaction in the screening room.  I was very pleased to get a 'Film Maker' pass - of course actors are film makers though often regarded as I don't know, sort of vagabonds trying to get something dishonest!  They should try making films without good actors and see what kind of film they end up with!  Anyway off my soapbox - it was a wonderful festival.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pieces is an Official Selection at Beeston Film Festival!

 I am so happy that we are screening there!  I very much hope to attend.   Where will 'Pieces' go next?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Trust Film Online

About a year ago I did a film made by Media Trust about miscarriage and it is now online and been highly praised by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.  I play an obstetric nurse who needs some retraining - you can see the film below.  I am happy to say that it has helped many people with their medical training.

 

 

 

 

 

Cymbeline Opens at The Space Arts Centre

I will be doing my first full Shakespeare production 'Cymbeline' - I play Belaria and we open on Monday 5th December!  It's been a long rehearsal process and it will be wonderful to finally go on and explore these characters more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pieces gets a Special Mention at I Filmmaker in Marbella!

 

It is almost a year ago since we filmed 'Pieces' in Yorkshire and Derbyshire - it doesn't seem that long  - it was so beautiful on location but very cold, a far cry from Marbella where we have had a Special Mention.  Where will it go next?!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 New Photos by ELM Photo Studio!

I have just had new shots done by ELM and I can't recommend them highly enough.  They do not just headshots but also porfolio shots like these below - Leah and Elisha took all day to achieve these photographs and I'm so glad they did. You can see some more on my Still Photos page. Here is a link to their website

Top Table

 is my twentieth imdb credit!  You probably know that imdb is the film industry bible - on it are all the feature films, TV shows, shorts and documentaries that have been given professional status.  When I came into acting properly as an adult I had a few credits on imdb from years before but now it has built up.  When I look back to this time last year so many things have happened that I couldn't have foreseen.  I didn't know about 'Top Table' or that it would be filmed in Portugal!  My character is May, a disgruntled beautician coming home after a long day at work.  I love to do comedy and hope 2017 will provide a lot more comedic opportunities!

 

 

 


 

 On location in Portugal for 'Top Table'!

 

Pieces is an Official Selection at Fright Night!

 'Pieces' has now had 5 festival nominations and will have it's second screening in the US in November!  'Fright Night Horror Fest' takes place in Louisville Kentucky and has been described as 'The Largest Genre Film Festival in Mid America'.  Where will it go next?


 

 


 

 

 

Yearning

I'll never forget this wonderful week as I have been filming on location in Portugal for the first time!  The sun blazed down and a lot of work was done.   The role of Lydia is a fantastic one for me and I'm so grateful to have been cast.  Here is the poster!

 

 

 

Space20

 I have for the last few weeks been rehearsing for 'Space20', a celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the The Space Arts Centre in the Isle of Dogs.  In the past I appeared at there as Baker in 'Fulfil Me Fully Phil' and Helen in 'Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens'.  What memories!!  It was great to be back.  I didn't know that the building was originally built in 1859 for the Scottish shipworkers' Presbyterian Church.  It was they who built Isambard Kingdom Brunel's  steamship 'Great Eastern'.  No wonder I feel at home there.  The show was sold out well in advance and a wonderful evening was had by all.

 

 


 

 


 

 

 Pieces at Exit 6 Film Festival!

 This weekend I finally saw 'Pieces' on the big screen at the Exit 6 Film Festival in Basingstoke.  I had seen 'Pieces' on the computer but the big screen was something else!  I also still jumped at all the scares.  We got wonderful feedback from the other Festival goers and all in all it was a great day!

Pieces will have it's American Premiere at Telluride Horror Show in Colorado!

 Pieces, the short film I worked on last year had it's UK premiere at Nightpiece Film Festival in Edinburgh and in October will be screened at Telluride in the US.  I wonder where it will go next?  The photos of Telluride look so beautiful I wish I could be there.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

The Noor Trail is Completed

 I was recently sent some booklets about the Noor trail - this sets out in detail all the places in England connected to the Second World War hero Noor Inayat Khan.  I learned a great deal about Noor's life when I worked on the film 'Snowdrop' for Talking Pictures last year.  Once you start to read about her life it takes over a bit.  I found myself going to many of the places associated with Noor to feel that connection to her life and times.  It was amazing to walk about a beautiful area like Baker Street in London and reflect that here many spies were recruited and trained for the Second World War.   They risked so much and often didn't survive.  I hope many people learn about Noor's life and follow the trail.  You can find out much more at the Arts Asia website here -

Downsizer is an official selection at Bedlam Film Festival!

 On the 16th August 'Downsizer' will be screening at Hollyshorts Festival in Hollywood and also at Bedlam Film Festival in Edinburgh!  This must be auspicious - where will Downsizer go next?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Mostly Dead Teaser Trailer

I finished 'Mostly Dead' last year - it forms part of a portmanteau horror feature film 'Horror Tales'.  Now four out of the seven shorts have been completed and 'Horror Tales' should be finished early next year.  Here is the teaser trailer - I can't wait to see it all.

 Pieces has it's First Festival Nomination at Nightpiece 2016!

It is almost a year ago since I travelled to Yorkshire to film the trailer for 'Pieces' a new horror short from Cappuccino Studios.  Now it has been nominated at Nightpiece Film Festival in Edinburgh.  Pieces has had so many good reviews from the horror critics I wonder where it will go next?!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Downsizer is an Official Selection at Hollyshorts 2016!

 It's so great that 'Downsizer' has another festival nomination!  I wish I could go out to Hollywood for the event.  Oddly enough in the last week I have been reading about Hollywood history and the lives of some of the stars - maybe I should do this more often!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Green and Pleasant Land

I was very happy to be cast recently in a rehearsed reading of 'This Green and Pleasant Land' a wonderful new play by Sheila Duncan, who has written a great deal for television.  I played the role of Elena, a Spanish lady with a tragic past. As well as being a rich character, I loved the challenge of working on my Spanish accent and learning a bit about tango  (I hope to do more).  The reading took place at the beautiful Beacon House in Whitstable.  It was a perfect setting. I can't wait to see what happens for 'This Green and Pleasant Land' next.  I also intend to visit Whitstable again - it is really characterful and full of beauty.

 The Beacons is so beautiful & provided a perfect setting for lives of the characters we played.

 

Pieces Update

My new film 'Pieces' has now got a new trailer on Youtube - you can see it here.

 

 In addition to the new trailer, 'Pieces' has been getting some wonderful online reviews.  Here are some of them - I'm so glad I was cast as Theresa.

 

 

 

Cannes 2016

I was really honoured to receive Cannes accreditation this year and have just returned from the festival!  I met so many film makers, distributors and actors who gave me a lot of valuable advice and information - it's also great to make new friends.  The scale of Cannes is huge.  It is worldwide the most important film festival.  I saw screenings of classic films, attended the Premiere of Jeff Davis' 'Loving' and screenings of Pedro Aldovomar and Kleber Filho 's new films, 'Julieta' and 'Aquarius' respectively. It was wonderful!

 My new film 'Pieces' is completed!

It is now being sent to various film festivals - I play the role of Theresa.  It has been a long but fascinating process to get to this point. You can find out much more about 'Pieces' on the Cappucino Studios website at www.piecesfilm.com 

 


 

 

 Some New Headshots by Rocco Redondo!

 What do you think?  My previous headshots have been wonderful and got me a lot of work but let's see what these new ones do!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mostly Dead is nearly completed

Mostly Dead is a new horror short that I worked on last year with the acclaimed horror director Ray Brady.  It is a stand alone short and will also be in a portmanteau feature 'Horror Tales'.  Here is the poster.

 

 

 

 

 

 Downsizer is an Official Selection at Cinequest San Francisco

 Downsizer will have three screenings at the Cinequest Festival in March - I wish I could be there. It's not easy to get festival accreditation - approximately 10,000 short films compete for 50 or so nominations in each festival.  When I became an actor I had no idea how long the odds are in every field but now when good things happen I appreciate them all the more.



 

 
    

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Showreel is Updated!

I went to Minamon Film this week to have my reel updated for the first time in a few years.  Please have a look at the new work they have included.  I recommend Minamon Film to any actors looking to make or update their showreel.  They took 7 hours to work on my pieces and even recorded & dubbed in some dialogue that was inaudible.  My last showreel got me a lot of work so what will this one do?  This time next year I'll see....

 Downsizer at Edinburgh Short Film Festival

 I had a wonderful time seeing lots of great films and Edinburgh!  Life is so busy it can be hard to find the time to go home so this was a perfect chance.  I also met the Oscar nominated director Damon Mohl - his wonderful film 'Mysterious Disappearance of the Town's Last Resident' was shot in the ghost town of Bodie in Californian, such an eerie, beautiful and evocative place it is like a living film set.  The weird thing is I visited there many years ago and it has always haunted me.  Strange how coincidences come up in life!

Tortoise at the Criterion Theatre West End

Naomi Westerman's new play 'Tortoise' had a matinee performance at the Criterion Theatre last week - I played the role of Elizabeth again!  It was just wonderful to stand on that stage - I can't tell you. A Londoner like me walks/runs/strolls through Piccadilly so often - but to actually  appear in a theatre there is a totally different feeling.  The play was extremely well received and got loads of laughs and great feedback.  I wonder what will happen next?  In this business you never know. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Snowdrop screening at Nehru House

I was at Nehru House this week for the London screening of 'Snowdrop' by Talking Pictures.  Why does going to  Mayfair in the evening make you feel like a Princess going to a ball?  Anyway it was a wonderful evening honouring the memory of the war heroine Noor Inayat Khan and it was amazing to be introduced to her nephew Michael Archer who told us some wonderful stories about his aunt before the screening.   I was cast as Vera Atkins about this time last year and it has been incredible to learn about Noor's story.

Nosology at the N16 Theatre in Balham

This Thursday evening on the 1st October 'Nosology' by Naomi Waterman will be performed at the N16.  I play the role of Elizabeth - 'Nosology' is a play within a play 'Tortoise' which I have worked on before.  It's wonderful to come back to a part you have played before and work on new material for that character as the writer creates it.  Like magic.  Well roll on Thursday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 '5' is short listed for Berwick Media and Film Festival

 This time last year I filmed the short '5' by the artist Rehana Zaman and it has now been nominated for an Inntravel Award at Berwick which is really great.  '5' was also screened at Multiplexing last November which was very exciting - I wonder where it will go next?

 

 

 

 

 Downsizer Screening

 'Downsizer - a Short Tale of Mechanised Office Equipment' had it's first London screening at MPC in the heart of Wardour St last week.  It was wonderful to finally see the film and catch up with everyone.  There should be some festival news for 'Downsizer' soon too.  It was a wonderful evening.  Ah the big screen.....

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 Saffron Avenue Rehearsed Reading

This new play about the 1889 Dockers Strike will be having a first reading at the Swiss Cottage Library on 21st July 2015 at 6.30pm.   It is being shown in association with Re-stage, an exhibition looking at the history of Radical Theatre in Camden by local artist Dmitri Galitzine.  The writer and director of 'Saffron Avenue' is Daniel Kelly an artist whose work involves writing and performance.  His previous play birds '2013' was about the Utopian ideals that led to the development of the Internet.  I am very happy to be playing the trade unionist Tom Mann.

 

 

 


 


Snowdrop Opens at Tangmere Museum!

 Earlier this year I played Vera Atkins, the SOE spy boss, in 'Snowdrop', the story of the great Second World War hero Noor Inayat Khan. Now the film is completed and touring to different places connected with Noor's story. Tangmere is where the agents, including Noor, were taken to France to spy for the Allies - here she stood on British soil for the last time.

Screening of 'The Hoad of Ca'Thir'

I was in Camberwell this week for the first screening of 'The Hoad', a new stock motion animation film for which I did the narration. The artist and writer Isobel Lester has created a truly magical world and I am so happy to have been cast as the storyteller.

Back to the Space!

I have been at The Space theatre this week for '28 Plays Later' - a workshop for cold reading new work. We literally read 28 new plays. I portrayed a zombie killer called Sarah, a ladybird, a Doctor, a pregnant teenager, a head torturer, a particle (yes really!), and a dead wife. Good day!

 

My next show is at the Greenwich Theatre!

I will be going back to my mime roots playing the Mum in 'The Mime Who Wouldn't Be Silent', a new play for children. I have always wanted to perform at the Greenwich Theatre so I feel this is a wonderful start to 2015.

First day of rehearsals at Greenwich Theatre!It's so beautiful and full of theatre history.

 

 

Downsizer is completed!

Here is the poster - I am so excited about this film's release. I think Mrs Ashcroft is one of the best roles I have had.


 

 

An Aardvark Sang in Leicester Square is  screened at the Raindance Film Centre London!

I finished my scenes on Aardvark about a year ago and it is now edited and ready for festivals etc. It was awesome to see the final film today - I will always remember my days on the missionary trail!

Rehearsed Reading of 'Still Waters' at the Hope Theatre Islington!

My first Welsh character - 'Still waters' is one of a trilogy of plays about the unecessary death of young people and also a very good gripping play. Great roles for women too.

 

 

 

Multiplexing Screening!

 


 

Me at Multiplexing! It was wonderful to be on the big screen again. Our section of 'Multiplexing' - 'The Conversation' got so much positive feedback - it was a wonderful day! My head will be turned by all the compliments.

 

 

 

My most recent film 'The Conversation' is being screened at 'Multiplexing'!

A group of artists from 'Lux Artist's Moving Image' have arranged a joint screening of their different films at a Multiplex cinema on the same day. The films are all being screened together as a conversation of pieces. The Multiplex in question is in Peckham, the day is this Friday 28th November.

 

'What an Artist Dies in Me' is being screened at Dusseldorf Film Festival!

I worked on this film over a year ago playing a Brazilian ex-pat reflecting on some awkward incidents in her social circle. It is now being screened at Dusseldorf as part of a series of films entitled 'The Dispute and the Enquiry That Followed'.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tortoise at the Cockpit Theatre!

In May of this year I appeared in 'Tortoise' at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich and on Monday evening, 13th October, we performed a shorter version of the play at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone. There are some changes since the last outing and it has been wonderful to reunite with my colleagues and get to know these characters again. I had not performed at the Cockpit before so this was another happy first!

 

 

 

My Soap Opera debut in '492 Korna Klub'!

I have been cast as Bridie Robertson in this new radio soap opera from Galaxy FM. It is a live improvised drama and I have appeared in Episodes 25, 26, 27, 28,32,33,34 and 38 so far. What adrenaline! It is the first ever improvised live radio forum theatre- this means members of the public can call in to comment and advise on what the characters should do next. We had several callers and it was wonderful to get that feedback immediately. You can hear my episodes on www.492KornaKlub.com on the Catch Up tab.



'Detective Harrigan' is now out on DVD

I did post production voice work on 'Harrigan' over a year ago and it is now out on DVD. I am in the credits as the Police Operator and you can hear me on the walkie talkie speaking to the lead actors as well as other bits. I know I would say this but it is an awesome thriller. The fashions and furnishings of the 70s - even the dingy street lights remind me of being a little girl. I saw bits of the film when we put voices onto various scenes but to see it all was great. I hope I get to do some more filming soon.

The Condemned

A first cut of 'The Condemned' is almost ready and should be released soon. I am so grateful to have learned so much about the Warsaw Ghetto and the experience of the Jewish people who were imprisoned there. This year, the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, is an especially appropriate time for these stories to be told.

Fragments

I have for a few weeks now been working on 'Fragments' a new play by Susanna Bennett, playing three completely different women caught up in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.I have been so lucky this year to play so many rich, interesting roles and this was especially true with 'Fragments'.

Working on 'Fragments'


Tortoise Redux

I recently performed the role of Elizabeth in 'Tortoise Redux' at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich in May 2014. What a wonderful part - I hope to play it again.

Thicker Than Water

I have just appeared at the Arnhem Gallery of Fairfield Halls in 'Thicker Than Water', a new play by Peter Briffa selected by the Warehouse Phoenix International Writing Festival. I played Vanessa, a 'Girl with no Knickers'! I would very much like to work on 'Thicker Than Water' again. It's a really compelling, entertaining story with only 3 actors and a simple set. The Arnhem is the biggest theatre I have so far appeared in and I loved it!

On the stage of the Arnhem Theatre with fellow actors Jethro Dykes and Lee Colley- what a day!

Having fun at the Sundance London Film Festival

This last weekend I went to Sundance for the first time. I met so many film makers and it was such fun. I learned a lot & will definitely return. Thank you to Moo.com for my awesome new business cards - they were just right!


These palm trees were so glamorous which isn't the point of course but I have to say it was just what a film festival should be!

Taking it all in.....

Jagoda Screening at the Whirled Cinema in Brixton!

Iplayed a clairvoyant in 'Jagoda' a new horror feature film from Fighting Badgers Films. It was great to finally see the film at the Whirled Cinema this week.


Pendell Grove

A mystery film I made last year 'Pendell Grove' is now available to watch on Youtube - filmed in a stately home outside Northampton last year it's rather spooky. I play Laura Miller.

 

Craic in the Crypt

My most recent stage role was Clarissa Smarrington-Bythe, a bag lady with a posh voice in 'Craic in the Crypt'. 'Craic' is a new play from The Green Curtain Theatre Company. Much of my ancestry is Irish and I am getting more and more curious to track down their places of birth etc. Anyway 'Craic' is a great comedy and I love my part.

Our get in day at Harrow Arts Centre.....opening night went very well and we were loudly cheered!!! There is nothing in the world like being on stage....

The Perfect Hunch of an Agoraphobe is being released very soon!

I played the heroine's mother in the feature film last year 'The Perfect Hunch of an Agoraphobe' and it is now complete and about to be released. I love the trailer - here is a publicity still and the official poster.

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

I have just finished playing the title role in this famous play for a three week run at the Barons Court Theatre - what an amazing opportunity. She is nothing if not complex! This year seems to be theatre rather than film, so far for me - the total opposite to last year. Funny how things go....

 

 

What You're Missing

I began this year with a show at The King's Head Theatre in Islington. I have always wanted to work there so this is a dream come true for me. Our play is 'What You're Missing' and is about two Jewish families in Vancouver in 1974. We completely sold out which is lovely. What an amazing start to this year.


The Walk News

I played several roles in 'The Walk' computer game app last year - I was Bardle and Professor Foster and now 'USA Today' has included 'The Walk' in the top ten Apps for 2014 which is awesome.
