Reviews

  • "A smart, funny and well-written take-down of modern showbiz"

    Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday
  • "Smart, funny, vivid, honest, dark, timely"

    The Times
  • "An entertaining and original memoir touching on career, life and identity. It is an enjoyable read, despite the humiliating tales of auditions or filming situations where she is physically assessed, objectified or subject to casual racism. Understandably there is an undertone of rage in her keen observations"

    Hannah Beckerman, Observer
  • "Character Breakdown embraces darkness while also being a wickedly absurd look at modern show business"

    Stylist
  • "A meditation on womanhood, failure and performance…her experiences and conflicts feel universal…it is very funny"

    Sarah Carson, i
  • "Sees the hotshot actress/writer/director who you might remember as mentalist Vod in student sitcom, Fresh Meat, look at the absurdity of pretending to be other people for a living"

    Muddy Stilettos
  • "An extremely imaginative and well-written volume that has the pace and page-turning attractions of a novel… a fine, painfully honest autobiographer/ novelist… [and] a good, witty read but which also gives purchasers a real insight into life in the acting profession today"

    British Theatre Guide

    Elizabeth Day, Country & Town
