Helen was born in Gloucestershire and now resides in Kent, less than an hour from central London and with good transport links to the rest of the country and to Europe.
From a young age Helen enjoyed performing arts. She took part in local pantomimes from the age of 8, performed a duet with her mother on a small local stage at the age of 9, and has been a member of various choirs as well as a small rock band over the years. She did a lot of creative writing as a child and throughout her teenage years. Helen especially enjoyed dance growing up which she found easy to master, and set up and led a dance troupe when she was 18.
As a teenager, Helen put acting on hold; however, whilst at University she worked at a large regional theatre which inspired her to take acting workshops and is where she met the TV producer Jesse Malone. It was whilst working under Jesse that the overwhelming passion for acting ignited.
Helen finished her Business Management degree soon after meeting Jesse and planned to pursue acting after graduation; however, philanthropy put acting on hold yet again as she moved to Kent to help set up a charity which left no time to be involved in acting.
In 2015 Helen was accepted on a two year Acting course at Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance in Sidcup. This is when she knew with certainty that her one main passion in life was acting and, with the encouragement of her tutors, decided to focus on pursuing it professionally.
Helen appreciates that the life experiences she gained over the years before fully focusing on acting has enhanced both her character and her acting abilities, and that by starting her professional acting career in her 30s this has given her a firm foundation on which to build a long-lasting career.
