Biography

Veronica was born in Wales and grew up on a small farm in Pembrokeshire, her mother a woodland officer and her father a design engineer based in Norfolk. At the age of three Veronica was taken to see Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake and at the end of the performance she stood up on her seat and shouted ‘I want more!’, which seemed to be the beginning of a long, passion driven and determined path to be on stage and on the big screen. At the age of 16 she moved away with a scholarship to study at the prestigious Cambridge Performing Arts, where she graduated with a high distinction and winning the Musical Theatre and Acting Awards.

Her roles include ‘Julie’ in the TV drama series ‘Dubai, London, Dubai’, ‘Mimi’ in the comedy sitcom ‘London Girl’, the young Beatrice Campbell in the feature film ‘Olive Green’, ‘Veronique’ in the feature film ‘Ataturk’ by Fuad Kavur, produced by Jonathan Sanger and Anthony Waye, ‘Young’ in Jasper Shah’s short film ‘Night Journey’, which premiered at Festival de Cannes 2015 and ‘Penelope’ in the short film ‘The Forging Of A Romance’.  She has also worked closely with the renowned National Theatre of Scotland, including a development with Lee Hall (the writer of Billy Elliot), Martin Lowe (Musical directer of Once, Mama Mia, Jerry Springer the Opera) and Vicky Featherstone (Director at the Royal Court Theatre).
