Hi, my name is Frances Simon and I am a Speech and drama coach and founder of this personal management agency.
I am from Mill-Hill in London where a lot of the streets I remember were named after Shakespeare. Perhaps that is where my love for the stage started at the tender age of 6!
I am a professional actress who received a full scholarship to train at the prestigious Webber Douglas Academy. This was before it was absorbed into Central School of Speech and Drama.
Acting experience & qualifications
I qualified with the Acting Academy Diploma with Distinction. Following my training, I attended The Arts Educational School and received a BA honours in Acting where I obtained a 2:1 with City University. I worked as an Actress in T.V and Radio, before a 10 month National Theatre Tour which brought me to York where I settled with my husband and our beautiful daughter.
I love to share my passion with the next generation
I am a York based Mum, so I know what it’s like to work with young people, and I have such a big heart for drama, theatre and the acting world. I love to share my passion with the next generation and to inspire them to go for their dreams! You never know what might be possible! I’m an experienced actor, public speaker, voice coach and Event Organiser. I’m also an experienced LAMDA Speech and Drama Coach, working independently at York Theatre Royal and also as part of Stagecoach York and at St Peter’s York.
