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 also worked with acting coach Mel Churcher.
Amongst other roles, I performed as Lady Bracknell in Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, staged in Camden.
In 2017 I performed in the title role in a 2 act play ‘The Wily Widow’, - an adaptation from Carlo Goldoni’s ‘La Vedova Scaltra’, which I also co-wrote and produced. The play was firstly staged in a theatre in Islington (2018), and subsequently at the prestigious Teatro Franco Parenti in Milan in 2019.
In both cases the play sold out on most nights.
I just completed the final draft of the screenplay for a feature movie: ‘Double Rainbow’, a family drama and a thriller, which will hopefully see the light of day very soon.
As an actor I draw from my life-experience, composed of happy good fortune and some grave disappointments: divorce, miscarriages, and breast cancer, all successfully overcome.
Feelings and emotions experienced in sixty years 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.
My acting dovetails the enthusiasm of a teen-ager with 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)
