About Kirsty H


I have worked as a professional theatre and television actor for 22 years, alongside my extensive teaching experience. West End credits include 'Les Miserables', 'Gone With the Wind', 'Betty Blue Eyes' and Tanya in 'Mamma Mia' at the Novello. I won a TMA (now called UK Theatre Awards) for playing Viv Nicholson in 'Spend Spend Spend' at the Watermill Theatre directed by Craig Revel Horwood. Screen credits include 'Call the Midwife', 'Les Miserables Movie', 'The Scandalous Lady W', 'Remember Me and The Corrupted'.

As a vocalist, I have performed worldwide in concerts and cabarets, as a soloist with Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and with the vocal trio 'The Patriot Girls' at Leeds Castle Classical Prom. I have sung on the soundtracks of many movies, most recently on 'Mary Poppins Returns' and 'Dumbo' for Disney.
