My name is Flora McConnell and I go to St Leonards Mayfield School. I am 15 years old.
Helen Halliday, the drama teacher at St Leonards Mayfield, emailed me telling me that I could audition for the role of Nancy in Swallows and Amazons. I immediately took interest as I love acting and have recently achieved my Bronze in LAMDA speech and drama. Swallows and Amazons was a book that my father use to read to me when I was little, and I remember looking forward to the time when he would read it. I think that this role would be suited to me as Nancy and I have very similar characters. We are both very stubborn, yet we love the idea of being alone and living life. I would love to explore lakes and islands, especially since the idea of independence is a key factor for this part.
