My name is Amy Sands, I am a 20 year old Drama student from Northern Ireland currently studying in my final year at Liverpool John Moores University. Once I graduate, I would like to concentrate on developing an acting career in either theatre or film.
I have always been interested in Drama, however my driven passion for theatre arose when I studied Performing Arts at GCSE and A Level. I was given many opportunities to develop my knowledge in theatre by acting in many different types of shows for example one being, Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd. I was also given the lucky chance to become a youth leader of our after-school Drama society which led me to stage manage our school's showcase of Oliver Twist.
I have come to realise in my past three years of studying Drama at LJMU that my areas of interest lie within acting and comedy as I have gained a lot of acting experience through performing naturalism, musical theatre, comedic acting, storytelling and stand-up comedy.
