ACTOR & VOICE ARTISTEMILY@EMILYSWAIN.COM
I am a member of British Actor’s Equity and Women in Film & TV. You can find my profile, credits and content on the leading professional industry platforms like Spotlight, IMDb and Vimeo.
I bring a seasoned professional hand. A child of the industry with actor parents, I have acted since the year dot but decided to spend a few years away from the business. This included living and working abroad, trailblazing successfully in both defence journalism and human rights and returning to embrace my home turf and acting DNA in the last few years. It’s been a fantastically rich and eclectic journey that makes me the performer I am today.
Working globally – including for multi award-winning playwrights and filmmakers – Theatre credits include: West End, regional, national and international touring – Europe, Australia and Pakistan. Screen work includes: features, shorts, TV and online content shot in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. My first feature was shooting with the legendary Sir Michael Caine & Martin Landau. I won a Best Supporting Actress award in the film “Toby’s Song” at the Independent Shorts Awards (ISAs) in LA.
My own filmmaking & writing projects have been Official Selections and Award-Winners at festivals including Independent Shorts, Los Angeles’ Indie Shorts Fest, London’s East End Film Festival, Irish Film & Television Academy (IFTA) - affiliated festivals (twice) and Dublin’s Bloomsday.
I am proud alumni from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, London (ALRA.) I also trained at Espace Acteur, Paris.
