Describe yourself in 3 words?

Childish, Playful and Creative – I’m a true Gemini 

Now how about your style in 3 words?

Mood Dependant, Personal

So you’re a DJ, what type of music are you in to?

I’m a real music baby, so really I have no specific genre of music I am more affiliated too.  My father from the day I was born played me Blues, Jazz, Rock n Roll, Soul and Country Music so they have a massive place in my heart.  But I have over the years also grown a love for House, and Techno.  In a set, you’ll see me playing a bit of everything.

Who’s your favourite artist/DJ?

Tough question, can’t give you one simple answer to this one.  My favourite DJ/Producers at the moment are Maya Jane Coles and Gaiser and my favourite live act right now is Pale.  I do also love everything by Massive Attack.

We know you’re also in acting, what sort of acting do you do?

Theatre and Film.  They are two different mediums which require a totally different approach.  But at the end of the day, they are both the art of telling stories.  I love both of them equally.

What’s your favourite film?

Wild at Heart

Do you have a different style depending on which part of your life you are working on?

I have a wardrobe with so many different types of clothes from all different eras (a lot of the 70s, 80s and 90s stuff), I can kind of be whatever I feel like! I mainly like to wear what I’m feeling.  So some days I’ll wake up and want to wear a baggy t-shirt, skinny jeans and my Adidas gazelles and another day I wake up and want to wear my crochet hippie dresses and some days I just want to mix them all together!  It depends on my mood each morning.  But for auditions, I tend to dress in the style my character would, and I have a similar attitude in rehearsals its help keep you in the part, clothes say so much about a person.

What do you hope to be doing in 5 years time?

Acting in a play at the Royal Court

Who are your style icons:

Anita Pallenberg – she’s an expressive and free dresser. That’s what it's all about.

What is your favourite Serge DeNimes item?

The black simple t-shirt with the Serge symbols.  I actually wore it to a gig last night with a vintage 70s red leather mini skirt.

Strangest thing you have worn:

Burberry print trouser suit.  It was actually quite cool!

Favourite spot in London:

Is about to be … MODE by boyfriends new club under the Westway which opens next month.
