No, I was last here in Cats playing Grizabella.

What is your usual daily routine and how do you think the panto schedule will differ?

Working in a clothes shop – so this will be much more fun!

Can you give us any gossip on your fellow cast?! (For a family-friendly audience!)

Not yet, but I’ll do some digging for you!

What would be your dream theatre role? Who would you love to work alongside?

Playing Elphaba in Wicked would be amazing!

Who is the most famous person in your phone/following you on social media?

Peter Pan! Haha!

What is your guilty pleasure? (For example, a cheesy song, unhealthy food, etc)

Mysterious Girl by Peter Andre, particularly the rap that I can perform!

Santa walking backwards!

Where will you be spending Christmas Day this year? Who with?

In Chesterfield with my family.

What are you most looking forward to about panto/Christmas/spending time in Mansfield?
