I really wish more people were finding this book. Great adventure, cast of real characters, and gritty kids who are making things happen in their world.

When I was little, I wanted to be an actress. I still wanted to be one when I grew up, so I became one!

Having trained at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) I worked in what was called ‘weekly rep’. The actors put on a play every week, performing one at night and rehearsing the next one during the day. It’s hard work. I shed kilos. Then I took a banana
