She said: "After making many contacts within the industry, I now run LDPA Agency alongside my performing arts school of which has over 150 students.

"We are a small boutique agency that keep our books small so that we can give quality time to each client's potential.

"We have clients who have attended castings for TV Dramas on Netflix, ITV and Amazon Prime, TV programmes with CBeebies and films with Disney, also a large number of commercials for Robinsons, Pedigree and the NSPCC.

"Most recently, some of our clients auditioned for Mary Poppins in the West End as theatres are starting to reopen in the summer."

'Miss Lucie'

LDPA Agency represents actors aged from four years old to 24, and specialises in film, TV and theatre work, together with voice work and commercials.

She set up in 2016 using the Castle Theatre as her base but in December 2019 moved into her new teaching complex in Saxon Court off Bradfield Close in Wellingborough.

Lucie added: "We also help to develop actors’ performing arts talent where appropriate. The agency works in association with Lucie Downer Performing Arts, however the agency’s books are open to LDPA students and non-LDPA students alike - it’s not necessary to attend classes in order to join the agency."

Auditions will take place at the studios in Wellingborough on Sunday, April 25 at Lucie Downer Performing Arts, 4, Saxon Court, Bradfield Close, Wellingborough, NN84RQ.
