Always imaginative, Lesley enjoyed creative writing and performance, but returned to them as a mature student. She completed the acting Foundation and Access courses at City Lit, and then the postgraduate 1 year Professional Acting Diploma at The Bridge Theatre Training Company. Lesley enjoys the exploratory journey of discovery involved in creating a character in order to tell interesting stories, and visualises scenes cinematically when she reads material for the first time. She has mainly worked with new writers’ material on stage and screen. She continues to train at The Actor’s Centre and relishes the opportunity to write and create her own material in collaboration with others.
