TAYLOR-WALSH

Agent & Manager

Lizzie (BA Hons) is a professional Actor, Director and Drama teacher. She trained with the prestigious National Youth Theatre and the Birmingham School of Speech and Drama.

Aside from her many years working as a professional performer and director, Lizzie also created the Pure Drama brand. Her theatre school not only trains young people to be bright, confident and skilled performers but also prides itself on friendly and affordable classes with fun at the centre of its heart. Pure Drama students have gone on to top London Drama schools, have won numerous awards and have a 100% pass rate in their LAMDA examinations.

Lizzie is delighted to now be adding an agency to Pure Drama’s growing portfolio and will be leading the team at Pure Drama Management.

Since graduating from Italia Conti in 2003 Clare has had a busy and varied career in the arts.

After a successful decade working professionally as an actor Clare switched her focus to behind the camera. Whilst her portrait work has included personalities from stage and screen, her children's commercial photography has taken her all over the country, including shoots for Marie Claire and Boden.

In addition she has worked extensively with young people, including teaching LAMDA, preparing children for auditions and children's castings. 

 

Clare is delighted to be joining the Pure Drama team.
