I have a rare bone disease called fibrous dysplasia which is pushing one of my eyes lower. I had a big operation when I was seven. I’m 13 now and will have to have another operation one day.
I still go for auditions and do feel a little more nervous as sometimes people will look at me just that bit longer than normal. I’ve played Lavender in Matilda the Musical in the West End, and did the Sainsbury’s Christmas advert.
I just want to keep acting and showing people just because you look different it shouldn’t ever stop you from going for what you want in life. I’ve got brilliant friends who stick up for me when things get a bit tough! I would rather people spoke to me and asked why I look like I do so I can explain to them rather than whispering and pointing.
