In recent years she has moved in front of the camera, with television credits including the BBCFour series A Stitch in Time; drama documentary Victoria and Albert: The Royal Wedding; and An American Aristocrat’s Guide to the Great Estates.

Finally breaking onto the stage as an actor her recent theatre roles include Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing; Eva in For Services Rendered; Wynne in Dinner; Lady Fidget in The Country Wife; Mrs Prentice in What The Butler Saw;  and Mother in The Railway Children.

A keen supporter of new writing she also participated in the 24 hour theatre experiment MAD24, with student writers from the UEA.
