ABOUT PRIMROSE

Primrose is an English actress who grew up in the South West of England. She first started performing at the age of 4 at Sidmouth Ballet school, as she grew older she then went on to learn tap, jazz and modern dance. She then began to avidly take part in all of the local amateur dramatic societies. It was through her extensive involvement in pantomime, plays and musicals that Primrose developed her acting, singing and dance skills. Throughout her childhood and early teens she has also gained many additional abilities such as horse riding, playing the saxophone and piano, skiing, numerous water sports and Judo.
