Hello you lovely lot, let me explain as quick as I can, what Ive done before and how we can work with each other.
I started work at 11 years old, as a professional actress in UK children’s TV show Byker Grove. I played the lead role of Emma Miller for 7 years and sadly this means there are many, many dreadful photographs of me all over the net. Byker Grove episode-Can you spot me?
I left Byker and signed a deal with Sony UK (under the name summer Matthews), touring the UK on TV shows such as TOTPs & MTV, whilst also becoming a regular feature in magazine such as OK, Elle Girl and UK daily newspapers. Summer Matthews-Little Miss Perfect
Singing, in truth was never my true passion and after my first single I decided to take myself to the critically acclaimed British drama school, East 15.
After leaving East 15 acting school I was back on TV, firstly playing Leigh-Ann Galloway on the popular BBC drama Waterloo Road then onto ITV’s The Bill BBC Doctors, BBC Casualty and lots more.
Alongside acting I was also modelling for fabulous companies, Mama Baby Bliss presenting the BBC’s under 5’s radio show CBEEBIES alongside popular characters, such as Mr Tumble and blogging for Famously Fit/OK magazine.
I set up my own adult acting class in the West Midlands, which became very popular and attracted some amazing talents Shannon Finan. Coventry Telegraph
Once I became a Mum in 2011 to my beautiful daughter Brooke (and then my second daughter Texas in 2013) I ran a coaching business helping other Mums to build their own business’s whilst being at home. During that time my husband was diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer The Daily Mirror and I brought my world close to home. Dealing with cancer video
