I have just returned from 5 weeks of filming in Turin, Italy for the lead role of Tracy in award winning director Emiliano Ranzanis’ feature film ‘Bloodbags’.
Without saying too much, the film is now entering post production and is expected to be released early 2018- watch this space!

I’m absolutely thrilled to have been cast in the role Emily in Glass Half Full Theatres’ two hander production of ‘Monologues of a Tired Nurse’.
The play tells the story of two NHS workers on the frontline struggling to cope with the pressures of the mounting paperwork and stress. Short staffed and underpaid these two nurses meet and tell the story of nursing in the modern day. A candid look at what it is to be a nurse written by a nurse.
The play had a hugely successful run at Barons Court Theatre earlier this year receiving several 4 star reviews-‘The performances are solid and convincing, particularly that of Makenna Guyler as the sweet natured but overwhelmed Emily.’ ‘Raw and real’.
This was followed by a 2 night stint at Wandsworth Fringe, and we now come to our final run at Camden Fringe- 4 nights from the 16th- 19th August 2017- Tickets can be purchased here!

This is my first project I’ve produced as well as acted in and it has been one of the best experiences I’ve had. I got to work with such an incredible team of people, who have really given their all in creating something amazing. I got to partner up with Richard Summers-Calvert on and off screen, and make something we’re very proud of! This is just the beginning of this films journey- but for now it’s into post production!!
I was recently back on set with the lovely BuddyBox films, for their latest project which is a promo for a feature, set to film over the summer this year. With a aeroplane hanger and beachfront, the locations were stunning, and I can’t wait to see the finished product!
I was so excited to be involved with such a great team for the infamous London sci-fi 48hour film challenge! Being a part of a team and collaborating with everyone to take something from the brief, to script, to screen in such a small time frame is such a challenge- but we made the Top 10 short list!!!

This week has been all about networking and celebrating!
First off, I had the cinematic screening of ‘Holt’ to attend. This was shot over the course of the summer 2014, and so the screening was an amazing opportunity to catch up with everyone who had been involved. Seeing the project come together as a whole was so much fun to watch, and on the morning of the premiere, we received news that we had made official selection for the first film festival the film has entered! The film had a great reception, and I feel that its’ festival journey is just beginning- so watch this space!!
I then topped the week off by attending the ‘Feast of Varanasi’ world premiere. It was amazing to see and hear
about the journey of the film both on and off screen, to see the final product, despite the difficulties and more so to be Rajan Kumar Patels’ directorial debut- it really is a thrilling watch. We met so many warm, supportive people atthe after party, including Rajan himself, who spoke very highly of everyone involved. I firmly believe he is one to watch and this film really is a product of passion and drive- give it a watch!
First feature of the year wrapped! The film was written and directed by Benjamin Rider at B.R. productions and Riding Pictures. The team were so lovely, and I got to work with a great bunch of new actors, which for me is always a massive part of my work. The film is loosely based on Shakespeares’ ‘A Midsummer Nights’ Dream’, and shot in a completely unique way that without giving too much away will be an interesting watch!
48 hour challenge
So recently I was asked by CarlLewis Films who I had the pleasure of working with last year to be their lead actress for the upcoming 48 hour films challenge! With such an incredible team of creatives behind it the filming ran so smoothly, from the initial meeting where teams are given the criteria for there film, through the script writing, then filming, editing and composing to the ultimate hand in. All the stills below were taken by Benjamin Gregory- Ring who can be found here. The final film can be seen here.
And to top off an awesome day- the film won its category! Congratulations to CarlLewis Films and everyone involved 😀
So I’m currently between Switzerland, France, Germany and Cameroon, shooting for Lab Studios’ TV pilot ‘Lifeline’. It’s been so much fun, with the most gorgeous locations and such a lovely cast and crew to work with- midway through and it’s safe to say this will be a gripping one to watch- In the mean time I’ve attached some pictures (and yes that is a double rainbow mid thunderstorm!)
Hey! So many exciting things kicking off at the moment- absolutely loving what 2015 is bringing!
To begin with, principal photography on short film ‘Sleep’ has wrapped- an awesome cast and crew to be involved with and I honestly can’t wait to see the finished product.
Short film ‘Holt’ (shot end 2014) is almost through post production, which means the trailer will be released soon so keep your eyes peeled!
Finally, I’ve secured a role in a dystopian TV series, set in our future where we suffer in a baron world and fight to survive. With this, I’ll be off filming in New York in the near future and will keep you posted along the way!
