Actors are listed in alphabetical order
Since the pandemic I now live on my farm and am interested in everything that happens around me. My main interests are my eight grand children, the arts, ballet, theatre and music. I love trout fishing and being on the river
I am originally from north Lancashire. I have lived in London, Worcester, Nottingham, France and Hungary but now live in Birmingham.
I prefer reading novels, particularly thrillers. My favourite music is Classical, though I also enjoy Hungarian gipsy music and Hungarian folk music.
I play the cello and speak Hungarian. In my spare time I play the cello in the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra
I have been working for InterAct for over 15 years. I was brought up in Edinburgh and studied in Glasgow before making the move south to London where I began reading in several hospitals for InterAct Stroke Support. Then nearly 10 years ago I moved to Bristol, taking InterAct with me. When I'm not reading, I am usually to be found performing on stage or recording audiobooks and in my non-work time I enjoy life in the outdoors - walking, canoeing, camping and wildlife spotting!
I’m a native Scot, but with Italian and Irish Ancestry, I’m considered a bit of a Minestrone! The Italian name D’Inverno simply means “Winter”. Having worked professionally as a child actor, I moved to London to study drama many moons ago. I now live in Windsor and have been involved with Interact since it first started 21 years ago, and am their Training Coordinator. Having had an Italian Nonna who was a wonderful cook, my hobbies naturally prioritise cooking. I also enjoy cycling, walking in Bonnie Scotland, renovating old properties, growing herbs and vegetables and most recently, wild swimming in Loch Tay. Oh, and I love dogs. When I’m not on stage or making vocal recordings, I’m involved with developing new drama scripts.
Cat-stroking, bike-riding, yoga-worshipping, apple-pie-munching, disco-dancing, radio-broadcasting, spa-chilling, guerrilla-gardening, Coventry-loving, London-living friend of InterAct for over 18 years!
I’m based in London and Sussex, and love discovering new places and being in green spaces.
Huge fan of Shakespeare, sleep, DIY and repurposing - including using my recently acquired upholstery skills - and champagne. Have a bass guitar waiting to be played... I live with a big rescue bunny called Beatrice, a real character who loves eating cardboard!
