Amy graduated with a distinction from the London School of Musical Theatre. Before that she studied a BA in Drama and Theatre from Trinity College Dublin. Alongside her degree, Amy attendedan advanced performance year at The Gaiety School of Acting.
Amy has appeared in many theatre productions both in Ireland and the UK. Upon her return from London, she co-produced and starred in a sell-out production of The Last Five Years, a two-hander musical at the Cube in the Project Arts Centre, under Rough Magic’s Production Support programme.
Since then she has worked on two productions in Cork – Alan Ayckbourne’s If I Were You and the edgy Boys by Ella Hickson. She was seen treading the boards (and flying through the sky) on the Gaiety stage as Wendy in the five star production of Peter Pan. Oh Yes she did!
Amy has worked with the New Theatre Dublin on three new writing productions Madame Markievicz on Trial by Ann Matthews, which went on a national tour, playing Captain Clodagh Farrell in the back by popular demand production of Lockdown by Gerard Humphreys, and in Ledwidge by the same author which also will tour nationally.
She has also experienced the BBC studio working on We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army story.
Amy is a freelance news broadcaster and has launched her own podcast called The Stage Door. The Stage Door.
