Which modelling agency are you represented by? Kids London Ltd
Who represents you with regard to acting? Kids London Ltd
Why did you decide to start modelling? It all kind of happened by accident. I was signed at the age of seven for modelling after having been asked to submit some photos to Kids London Ltd. I then joined Spotlight via Kids London and that resulted in being asked to cast for commercial & acting roles……as they say, the rest is history!
What is the best part about being a model? I love the fact that I get to meet new people. Wearing different clothes than I would not normally get to wear is great fun. I also really enjoy shooting for editorials.
Which has been your favourite shoot to date? It’s very hard to pick just one but if I had to it would be an Editorial for Luna Magazine called “Traveling Circus” By photographer Jay Fenwick, styled by Yvadney Davis and the was MUA Amy Sachon. I got to combine my love of modelling & contortion in one project.
What brands have you modelled for so far? Next, Loud Apparel, Fatface, Luna, Hooligans Magazine, Hazzys & Flakiki.
If you could work with any brand which would be top on your list? Urban Outfitters. I just love the styles.
Which is your top fashion magazine/blog? It would have to be Luna magazine as this was my very first modelling job which resulted in me getting the cover & a beautiful editorial story by the amazing photographer Lol Johnson, styled by Yvadney, and MUA Pauline Briscoe. I am also very grateful to Junior Style London for all of their support over the last few years.
Which models do you look up to for inspiration? I really get inspired by other models around my age. I love seeing what projects they have been working on. It’s so good to see other models I have met doing well.
Can you tell me a little more about your work as an actor? I have been in the following Series: “The Wheel of Time” For Amazon Prime, “The Gold” For BBC, “Willow’ For Disney+
I recently finished filming a 6-month, 8-episode project for Amazon Prime which will be released in 2024. This was such a cool role to play as my character is very naughty. I am currently filming a lead role in a 5 episode project for Disney+
What is your favourite item in your closet? Flared Cargos Pants.
Who is your role model? There are too many to mention! I am incredibly blessed to have met so many amazing people along the way on what has been a very crazy but extremely cool few years so far. I feel so lucky.
How often do you train with regard to being a contortionist? Most days I do some form of training and stretching. I train most weeks in London with my contortionist trainer, Pixie Le Knot. However, this depends on my modelling & acting commitments.
What is it that you like about being a contortionist? How people react to my bendiness and seeing what positions I can get into with my body! I also really enjoy performing in London shows.
What are your favourite subjects at school? Drama, PE & English.
Do you speak any languages? I am currently learning French at school. This year I went on a school trip to St Malo which is in the North of France. This Summer I am filming a series in the South of France.
You are a busy young lady, what do you do in your spare time? What are your hobbies? I enjoy contortion, circus arts & gymnastics
If you could have 3 wishes, what would they be?
To go to the Maldives!
To keep growing as an actress & have a long modelling & acting career.
A home for anyone who is homeless; everyone should have a safe home.
If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be? That’s a hard one! Perhaps David Attenborough because he would have interesting stories to tell about everything he has done and everywhere he has been.
What is your biggest dream? To have a long, successful modelling & acting career and to one day write and direct my own project.
What is the last book your read & film you saw? I read The Bone Sparrow for English & I saw the Barbie Movie on the last day of term with all my school friends.
