Marilyn Ann's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a self-employed actor who also does promotional work. I enjoy working with the public and am professional, reliable, hard-working and have excellent time-keeping skills. While working for Kodak I achieved the highest number of national sales through their in-store photo printing kiosks. I particularly enjoy costume work and have worked as a costumed character for Cadbury Buttons and on a long-term basis for Birmingham City Council. I have enhanced CRB disclosure dated November 2009, a degree in French and German from the University of Nottingham and a Graduate Diploma in Acting from Birmingham School of Acting. When I am not working I enjoy going to the cinema, reading anything I can get my hands on and writing film reviews. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
