About Louise

Louise recently made her first television appearance as the Band’s Stripper, Kay, in Danny Boyle’s Pistol starring alongside Tony Wallace and John Lydon. In the summer of 2021, she was cast as the Princes’ Royal Nanny in Netflix’s The Crown starring alongside Elizabeth Debicki. On the music front, she is looking forward to producing her first single with world-renowned music producer Stuart Epps. She recently worked as an SFX technician and assistant armorer under the tutelage of Perry Costello on the Bollywood production of “Neeyat” directed by Anu Menon.

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 for the United Nations and 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.
