Renni Eddo-Lodge, Emma Watson and Rebecca Solnit led a project in which they replaced the name of every tube map in London with the name of a woman or collective. I’m proud and honoured to be Harlesden, which is where I grew up in London. You can view the interactive tube map here

I’ve written an episode of EastEnders and it airs at 8.35pm on Wednesday 16 June 2021. Due to the Euros you can also watch on BBC iPlayer from 14 June. I’m very excited about working on the show and grateful to development producer Kieran Grimes and script editor Sophie Peters for supporting me on my first episode.
Filming between lockdowns one and two, I played Gloria in Veneer. Written by and starring Jean St Clair, directed by Louis Neethling of Mutt & Jeff Pictures, Veneer premiered on Film 4 on 5 April. You can watch it online at BSL Zone here
Two episodes of BBC’s Casualty I worked on have been nominated for an RTS award. One episode, includes a storyline I pitched about a wrestler, written by Rachel Aird, directed by Alex Jacob and produced by Rebecca Hedderly.
