It was always assumed that I would be an actress. I went to Drama School in the early 60’s, but after two years of getting nowhere, and tired of waitressing and waiting, I abandoned the profession. So it was a bolt out of the blue that thirty years later my acting career suddenly happened and I found myself playing a lead at the Bush Theatre in ‘Backstroke in a Crowded Pool,’ by Jane Coles. It was exhilarating.
In 2008 I played Miss Chandrakala in the Doctor Who episode, The Unicorn and The Wasp. I made a second appearance on the show as Nani Umbreen in Demons of the Punjab in 2018.
