Amy Helena

Student Information


I am an actor and theatre maker in my final year of study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on the BA Performance in BSL and English course. 

I am deaf but do not believe that defines me as an actor, so I label myself as an actor not a deaf actor. I grew up in Fife in Scotland and I am now based in Glasgow.  

My upcoming work includes The Coat with Ramesh Meyyappan as Director.
