Nerine is an actress, comedian, theatre maker and writer.

Nerine began her career in Dance and then moved into Musical Theatre, training at Arts Educational Schools London.  It was during her studies that she found her love for comedy and performed her first stand up set.

Not long into her acting career she met her comedy partner Lizzie Franks while playing Baguette and Croissant (yes real character names!) in the pantomime “Beauty and The Beast” at The Riverfront, Newport.

Together they have performed as part of an international circus as two Russian Cossack dancing frog tamers, and as a pair of compering clowns. They have also written, produced and performed two 5 star shows in Edinburgh in 2015 and 2017 and have since been asked to write pilot scripts for BBC radio.

Nerine is also one third of comedy cabaret group ‘The Dots’. Their chaotic show made its debut in Edinburgh in 2019 and received 5 star reviews as well as coming 12th in The List publications ‘Most rated shows’ of the festival. They are now working with a producer to progress the show further and will be bringing it to a London venue.

Nerine has performed in all areas of the industry. Some Theatre credits include; P&O Cruises Headliners Theatre Company, “Songs of My Life; Peter Polycarpou” – Garrick Theatre London; Sybil in “Faulty Towers; The Original Dining Experience”, Marlene/ Cassandra in “Only Fools and Horses; The Cushty Dining Experience” and Val in “Confetti and Chaos” (London West End/ Edinburgh Festival Fringe and UK Tour).

She is a veteran Panto performer with roles such as; Fairy Bowbells in “Dick Whittington” and Fairy liquid in “Jack and The Beanstalk” – Riverfront Theatre; Rosemary in “Rapunzel” and The Rascal Prince and Nibbles in “Dick Whittington” – Bury St Edmunds, Theatre Royal; Genie of The Ring in “Aladdin” and Soufflé in “Beauty and The Beast” – Salisbury Playhouse and Dandini in “Cinderella” – Mercury Theatre Colchester.

Televison credits include; “Comedy Virgins” (Tiger Aspect), “Undercover Girlfriends” (Channel 5), “The Undateables Christmas Special” (Channel 4) and a children’s pilot series (Adastra Development).

Nerine is also involved in many devising projects. Last year she helped develop 5 star dining show “Confetti and Chaos” which she took to Australia to tour and direct a new group of actors.

Most recently, Nerine has been in research and development for a new show called “Roald Dahl and The Imagination Seekers” in affiliation with The Roald Dahl Guild which is currently on a UK Tour.
