When dean bridel's animal movement and unrecognisable classes pay off
'selina as Jraffe'
the question is, what do you want her to become? if you don't know, as a natural investigator, she will find it for you.
AGE 3- 'Selina expresses herself well in a wide variety of contexts. She has a good imagination and likes making up stories and playing them out- often assigning roles to other children. She gets deeply involved in 'role' play particularly in the home corner, playing out experiences and using appropriate language e.g. Long telephone conversations to rearrange Doctors’ appointments, arranging to meet friends and sorting out difficulties etc. She sometimes likes to take the leading role in imaginative play settings.'
Selina is an exciting, refreshing and thought provoking British actor based in Los Angeles and available to travel to UK/Europe. She is extremely professional and passionate in all that she does; driven to succeed with a notable skill-set and great sense of comic timing.
She's the one with the multifaceted voice, making grown men sound like prepubescent teens; breaking racial stereotypes by transforming from a candid Ghanaian to a vulnerable, old, white lady in seconds.
Selina graduated with an MFA in Acting at USC School of Dramatic Arts

WHAT I DO
Unable to resist the mission to create new thought provoking, reactive, immersive experiences. A lover of site-specific, Live Art, Dance, Physical Theatre and more or less any means of re-imagining new and existing tales.
Her thought process revolves around finding new ways to express and bring energy, imagination and risk to refreshing themes. She loves and has always been extremely passionate about bringing characters and ideas to life.
She develops a new voice and body work for each character she plays, whether in be in her native British or American, or upon request, each is very different and foolproof.
BELIZE in Angels in America, SONYA in Uncle Vanya and EURYDICE in Antigone X.
