Born in Milan, I came to London in my early thirties, and for twenty-odd years worked as a property consultant, interior decorator, fashion designer, and psychotherapist, before taking a big leap and embracing acting full-time. Workshops and classes (City Academy, City Lit, RADA, Actors Studio, The Actors Centre, Questors Academy) have been supplemented by private tuition (voice, singing). I aslo worked with acting coach Mel Churcher.

 

Last year I performed as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, staged in Camden. I enjoyed the role immensily.

 

I recently performed in the title role in a 2 act play ‘The Wily Widow’, which I  also co-wrote and produced. The play was firstly staged in a theatre in Islington (2018), and  recently (March 2019) at the prestigious Teatro Franco Parenti in Milan. In both cases the play sold out on most nights. 

A new play is ready: 'Double Rainbow', a story set in Southern Italy, where refugees arrive every day.
I aim to stage it in London in 2019, and in Italy in the next year.

 

I have a rich life-experience to draw on as an actor, with happy good fortune and some grave disappointments:  divorce, miscarriages, and breast cancer, all successfully overcome.  Feelings and emotions experienced so far are the best tools in my kit.  

 

I am a good actress, and extremely committed.   I can act in English (SE and RP), in Italian (many accents) and French.

I bring to my acting the enthusiasm of a teen-ager, and the commitment of someone my age. 
I am ready to embrace a new challenge on stage or on screen.

 

‘The thing about performance, even if it’s only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities’ (Daniel Day-Lewis, quoting Sydney Smith)
