Graduating in 2000, Louisa went straight into a BBC drama called Judge John Deed. Four years later, with a fourth series promised, it has provided invaluable experience in front of a camera, exposure and opportunities.
In between filming, Louisa has worked in the theatre on plays such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Jack Shepherd, My Children! My Africa! directed by Dana Fainaru (both alumni of the Drama Centre) and most recently The Lady From The Sea at the Almeida Theatre directed by Trevor Nunn. For this latter role she was nominated for an Ian Charleson Award – the most prestigious national award for actors under 30. Louisa has completed filming a 6-part Granada TV programme called Island at War.
“I guess if there is one thing I can say I have learnt about Drama Centre since graduating, it's that Drama Centre is everywhere! It’s quite incredible what an influence it has had and is still having on theatre, TV and film both in Europe and across the Atlantic. Drama Centre actors are exciting to watch, exciting to work with and I feel enormously proud to have Drama Centre on the top of my CV.”
