“What excites me about Rebecca's abilities is that she understands the work on so many levels. That is a great, great gift. Not only that, it comes with a humbleness and a huge desire to learn. Rebecca has gained many directorial, performance and technical skills along the way but more importantly life skills. She is an all-rounder because she is an acute observer of life, has a real dedication to her craft, and has thorough discipline and clear focus for the work in hand. She is always a ready contributor to the task ahead, methodical in her approach, has strong retention skills and a nature well suited to the rigours of this industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca for any Award/Company. I feel very strongly that she is more than ready for the challenges ahead in this industry.”

"My experience of working with Rebecca was primarily one of pleasant surprise, that someone so young would be so professional, organised and sensitive. Rebecca is a fast learner and with her serious and immediate application of the lessons in my class, she immediately produced great results. She's a terrific actor and I believe given time, she will be producing quality work that will grace the highest levels in our business. I look forward to enjoying her achievements in the near future."
