LOOK Into…being a VI professional actor – a Q&A with Ellie Wallwork and Grace Whitford.

Join us online for this exclusive interview and Q&A session and find out everything you need to know about pursuing a career in acting!

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a professional actor if you’re visually impaired? Or maybe you’re a VI young person, considering a career in acting but you don’t know where to start?

Join us in conversation with actress Ellie Wallwork. Ellie is a young artist and performer who has been blind since birth.

She is an accomplished actor in Film, TV and Radio, and has been a singer/songwriter for many years. Ellie is well known for her high profile roles in Doctor Who and Call The Midwife.

Ellie told us:

‘I’m a 21-year-old visually impaired actor and writer. As well as being passionate about authentic representation of visually impaired people, I also aim to help anyone I can to achieve their goals and ambitions. I love to take part in new projects, experiences and anything that will help me broaden my creative horizons.’

Ellie will be joined by Grace Whitford, a visually impaired actress from Hertfordshire. Grace has appeared in BBC’s Doctors and several independent short films. She trained for 2 years at one of the UK’s leading drama schools on an Actor/Musicianship course and is now pursuing more independent work.

Come along to this event, listen to LOOK mentor Rupert in conversation with Ellie and Grace, and bring along your own questions to ask!
