What role do you play in Beautiful? Cynthia Weil


Tell us an interesting fact about yourself:

I sleepwalk!


What has been your highlight of the production so far?

Winning the Olivier Award for best supporting actress… oh and meeting Cynthia in real life!


How would you describe Beautiful in 3 words?

Honest, inspiring and uplifting!


What is your favourite Carole King song?

Some Kind Of Wonderful


What is your favourite moment in the show?

There’s a scene between myself and Katie (Carole King)in Act 2, and it’s the only scene where it’s just us two together on stage. They were such strong, inspirational women (and they still are of course). So that scene always makes me feel empowered and honoured to be playing this role.
