Angela’s theatre work is extensive. Since training at LAMDA, she has appeared in a huge variety of plays – classical, modern and experimental – in theatres all over Britain. A few of her many leading roles include Leila in The Short-Sighted Bear, a part written for her by Andrew Davies (best known for his BBC TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice), Belinda in Visitors, a new play by Carey Harrison and Jeremy Paul, The Lady in The Lady’s not for Burning, Kate in The Taming of the Shrew, Lady Percy in Henry IV Part 1, and Mother in The Railway Children.
Early in her career she joined the Avon Touring Company, a Bristol-based co-operative founded by a group of actors which included Tony Robinson and Howard Goorney. Here she appeared in a number of new works and enjoyed being directed by well-known comedians Denise Coffey and Mel Smith. Further new plays came her way with another groundbreaking Bristol company, Show of Strength. One of these was Here is Monster directed by Shopping & F***ing writer Mark Ravenhill.

Angela has been seen in various television series and serials, including a youthful stint in the much-derided soap Crossroads, where she played the love interest of one of the leading characters. She has also had roles in many one-off dramas, and in two films. Her wide-ranging parts in promotional videos, training films and student experimental pieces are too numerous to mention – or even to remember.
