It was Create’s story that first captured my imagination. The charity has grown to such heights in such a short space of time and everyone who works there has such a passion for what they do. I feel inspired by all of the work that Create does but it is the charity’s creative projects for older people that are particularly close to my heart, as this group is often neglected. There is a tendency to forget that older people are creative too. I had acted on the stage throughout my twenties and thirties but it is only in the last 15 years that I have rediscovered my passion for acting and embarked on a film career. I’m thankful that Create is giving people a chance to discover and showcase their own creative energy later in life.
