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.
