Claire trained with Marianna Hill and David Bennett at the Lee Strasberg Institute, before joining the LOST Youth Theatre Company in the early 1990s, working many times with its founder, Cecil Hayter. It is here she found her first experiences and foundations on stage, as well as her work ethic, in an, "all hands on deck" environment that encouraged the idea any production is made up by a team of equal parts - that no one person is less important than another. As well as appearing in several productions at LOST, other theatre includes revues, musicals, classical theatre, panto, comedies and dramas, including performances for The Theatre Factory (under Michael Wycerik), Waterman's Theatre Group (under Chris Barton), and performances at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and Her Majesty's Theatre in the Haymarket with Ata Productions. She cites the latter experience - which involved her first time singing solo for an audience of over 1200 - as one of the most thrilling experiences of her life!
Claire has also worked in the film/television industry for over 25 years, including several music videos, television shows, and short/feature films. She has also been in a few bands and choirs (currently with Real Voices), and loves to sing. She has also done a number of photographic jobs, most often in weekly magazines such as Bella, Best, Take A Break, Woman, etc.
Claire has directed a few theatre productions and student films, which she enjoys, as she likes to support and encourage others.
