Vanessa’s passion for acting began as a teenager when she attended St Martin’s Youth Theatre. She later did a workshop with Bud Tingwell and had a small roll in a short film. She later took up acting again and started classes with Drama with a Difference and then Brave Studios. Interested in the Meisner Technique she trained with Actors Arise in 2015. Her life experience ranges from being a Private Secretary to living and working in a Zimbabwean safari camp where by chance she was asked to be involved in Clint Eastwood’s “White Hunter Black Heart”. Vanessa loves the immediacy of theatre and has appeared in two plays in the Melbourne Fringe Festival. She is excited to continue the exploration of her craft.
