Laura's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a very determined, hard-working, reliable, enthusiatic and fun person, with a wealth of experience in dealing with the general public in both face to face and non- facing promotional roles. I adore working with people and promoting fantastic brands and products to the public. I am currently working two days a week as a freelance children's storyteller and drama teacher. My passions are acting, reading and keeping fit at the gym. I have professional acting experience both on stage and televison. My professional highlight was working as a regualr character (Candy Browne) for Channel Four's Hollyoaks for seven months. I have also appeared in dramas for ITV and played various roles for stage productions across the North West. After leaving my role at Hollyoaks I completed a degree in Creative and Performing Arts acheiving a First Class Honours degree and i was awarded a scholarship for an MA. I studied my MA by Creative Practice full time, during the year of 2010 and was awarded a Distinction, graduating in Jan 2011. During my studies i highly enjoyed taking on promotional work and customer service roles. Now I have graduated, I am looking for new and exciting challenges and believe this is the industry which will enable me to acheive my full potential.
