About Louise

 

Louise is a trained interpreter and translator, having obtained an MA in French and Hispanic Studies from the University of Glasgow and a PGDip in Translation and Interpretation at the University of Westminster. She is currently working as a freelance translator while training as an actress, and has worked for the United Nations and the European Commission/Parliament both on an employed and freelance basis. She is fluent in French, Spanish, Portuguese and German. She has an excellent accent in each of these languages - if given a script she would sound like a native speaker.

Louise made her theatrical debut in Do Not Disturb by Michael Pertwee directed by Aaron Pennie, which was performed in Glasgow between 14 - 16 May 2014, only two years after she started her acting training. The screening of her 2012 short film 'Chameleons' in Edinburgh was a huge success. She is a professionally trained actress looking for her break. She has also just co-produced her first track with an American producer and is looking forward to working on the rest of her album over the course of 2020.
