As well as being an actress, Eddi has experience writing and movement directing for theatre and has worked as a teacher and facilitator for various theatre companies and productions.
Whilst always having had an interest in physical theatre, at 19 she discovered dance, rhythm and flexibility as ways to develop and strengthen a movement-based approach to her acting practice, and now brings an active and fluid physical energy into the rehearsal room and her work. She is also a keen lyra performer, and enjoys discovering new ways to bring her physical strengths into her routines as well as devised and text-based theatre performance.

After completing her undergraduate degree in 2018, she garnered agent interest in Melbourne and performed in short films, podcasts and children’s theatre shows before starting her MA at RCS in 2019.
 

During a brief return to Australia, she helped co-direct and create an original piece in collaboration with JUTE Theatre Company and Kuranda Youth Theatre entitled TORN, which premiered in June 2021 before her return to the UK to complete her training at RCS.

Now based in Glasgow, Eddi is establishing new roots in the Scotland and UK industries, bringing all her passion and learning from the antipodes with her, and intends to contribute as much as possible to the performing arts as it recovers from the last two years.
