Bio

Michele came late to acting, having joined a local amateur group at the age of 43. She realised that acting was all she wanted to do, and should have been doing all along. She is passionate and committed to being the best she can be, whatever it takes. The last two Christmas seasons she played Mrs. Claus at Wells House and Rathwoood Home and Gardens (a great experience and lesson in improvisation and thinking on your feet!). She was on the amateur circuit for many years and received several acting awards.
