Francesca is twelve years old and lives with her mum and dad in a quiet rural Yorkshire village.
Francesca got the acting bug soon after starting school when she began rehearsing for the Nativity at the age of 4 where she narrated much of the show herself and sang a solo. A few weeks later she sang two solos on stage at a local folk festival. Her passion has only grown since.
At her happiest and most relaxed on set or stage, she is not precocious or 'stagy' in the slightest and has made many lasting friendships amongst the cast and crew, children and adults alike. Her positive attitude and professionalism means she has been asked to appear in further projects by several of the directors she has worked with.
She takes LAMDA lessons and has gained DISTINCTIONs in her exams and recently gained a DISTINCTION in her Grade 5 in Musical Theatre with LCM and now 81% in her grade 6.
Francesca has many other hobbies too, including kayaking, fencing, horse riding, archery, gymnastics (grade 5), swimming (grade 3), dance (Ballet Grade 3, MT dance Grade 3, Freestyle Grade 2), reading, writing stories and playing the piano (Grade 2) and loves composing tunes and lyrics on it or on her guitar and is now also learning to play the drums! As well as climbing trees, collecting insects and nature items, Francesca enjoys playing on her trampoline and trapeze.
An intelligent, artistic, inquisitive child, when tested at the age of 7 she had a reading age of 14+, has a high IQ and learns lines, lyrics and direction very quickly. She is natural and confident in front of the camera, but quite shy away from it. She can portray emotion and is able to improvise and cold read. She is home schooled by her mum who is a qualified school teacher. Her favourite subject is history.
She loves animals of all kinds and has 3 pigmy goats, 4 chickens, 4 fantail doves, 4 fish, rabbit and 2 hamsters as pets and spends a lot of time with her sister's dog Dexter or on the farm next door. She spent some time on a sheep farm where she learned how to command the dog to round up the sheep and drive them into a pen! Francesca has also taken part in several Zoo Lab activities where she handled snakes, rats, giant insects and reptiles, but refused to hold the terancula! She now takes part in the WWF adoption scheme and uses part of her earnings to sponsor endangered animals.
