I currently live in London but spent most of my childhood in Zürich, 

Switzerland. Since moving to London, I have performed in National Theatre's Network, Secret Cinema's Romeo + Juliet and trained with Rose Bruford College, the National Youth Theatre, the University of Leeds and London School of Film, Media and Performance. In 2019, I was inspired by the continuous, immersive style of films Birdman and 1917, and video game Detroit: Become Human, to create my own show. I wrote, directed & starred in Dawn of the Transmaton, an immersive performance of a game simulation run by a multi-planetary artificial intelligence. Now, in 2020, I am spending lockdown turning Dawn of the Transmaton into a short film, The Zen of AI and adding new roles to my Vimeo page. My aspiration is to one day work with the creators of films such as Ex Machina, Interstellar, Blue Valentine, SicarioGod's Own CountryWhiplash,  Blade Runner, AtonementTV shows such as ChernobylYears & Years, NarcosBlack MirrorWhen They See Us, and plays such as Lucy Kirkwood's Chimerica and Alistair McDowall's all of it

“Rebecca has a curiosity and instinct as an actor which makes her not only compelling to watch but also a joy to work with. She actively engages with the industry and works hard to consistently develop her craft. She would be an asset to any project and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.”

Michael Corbidge

and Freelance Director 

“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.”

& Acting Coach 

"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."
