Hot, hard and sweaty is great. No, I’m not into porn
but am a devotee of the Bikram variety of yoga.
One of my favourite poets, e.e. cummings, wrote…
And perhaps the greatest gift that both acting and yoga affords its students
is an appreciation of energised stillness. This interests me greatly because
the connection of mind and body in stillness is a founding principle of good health,
about which I am passionate.
And so give me plenty of access to fellow actors, a stage or a camera,
a director working with rich material, and an occasional yoga studio… and I’m happy.
The teachings of Stanislavsky and, especially, Michael Chekhov. The writing and ideology of Harold Clurman and Stella Adler. I am inspired by film and theatre that is visually poetic, as well as the writing of the mystics and romantics from Rumi to Yeats. More contemporary influences include film-makers Pedro Almodóvar and, for his emphasis on character, Mike Leigh. For the brilliant and reflective light that her performance art throws on humanity, the late dance choreographer, Pina Bausch.
In Australia. Arriving from London, a clear sky and vivid light illuminated my new world. I loved the vibrant colours of the landscape and the vast stretches of coastline that afforded a bounty of beaches. Having secured work and updated my acting training at NIDA, it wasn’t long before Australia started to feel like home. I currently present a television show, broadcast live from Sydney to the UK, and have recently completed acting in a series of short films, produced in Australia.
Was co-founded with artist Amanda Collins in 2014. Brief Candle Productions seeks to consistently produce high quality dynamic theatre which engages, illuminates, challenges, provokes and entertains its audiences.
