Kiri Woodward – Resident Character Actress
Kiri discovered a passion for performing arts at a young age after being inspired by her father who went to The Royal Ballet School in London & danced with Rudolf Nureyev, so she grew up around performing. After seeing her dad in shows or tagging along at rehearsals and witnessing the magic happen she developed the theatrical bug. It was from then onwards she started taking part in anything and everything to do with the performing arts. Kiri went on to join a local theatre academy where she took part in acting, singing and dance classes. Within these classes, she tried her hand at a variety of different roles and characters including women, men, young, old, serious, comical, animals, objects and mime to name but a few. Through the years at the academy she had the privilege to perform at many different venues including, The Royal Albert Hall, The London Palladium & Sadler’s Wells.
Later Kiri enrolled onto a Performing Arts/Acting course at her local college to focus more on acting, where she played the role of “Lady Capulet” in Shakespeare’s play “Romeo & Juliet”. College gave Kiri a deeper insight into the performing world along with experience in the many roles that go on behind the scenes too.
Kiri is now exploring the world of TV/film and recently appeared in the latest Bourne film (Jason Bourne).
Over the past few years Kiri has taken a break from the theatre world to become a qualified interpreter for the deaf. After 4 years of hard work to learn the skills & knowledge needed within British Sign Language, she now only has 1 more year left till completion.
