Initially intending to be a writer, Eddi's discovery of Shakespeare at the age of 14 sparked her interest in performance as a career path, and she hasn't looked back since. After commencing her formal training at 18, she discovered various forms of dance, rhythm and flexibility as ways to develop and strengthen a movement-based approach to her acting practice, and now brings a strong, active and fluid physical energy into any rehearsal room and her work.

After completing her undergraduate degree in 2018, she starred in short films, podcasts and children’s theatre shows in Melbourne for only seven months before moving to the UK to train further at RCS.

 

During a brief return to Australia in 2020, she helped movement direct and write an original theatre piece in collaboration with JUTE Theatre Company and Kuranda Youth Theatre entitled 'TORN', which premiered in June 2021 before she returned to the UK to graduate, as well as to expand her creative ground internationally.

Now based in Glasgow, Eddi is establishing new roots in both the Scottish and wider UK industries as a performer and collaborator, bringing all her passion, energy and skills from her experiences - both nationally and abroad - to every project she is apart of.
