I am Gabrielle Hanford, I am 36 years old, I live in Bath and am passionate about providing acting talent outside of London with the same opportunities to be cast in television and film. Many actors are booked in London and travel to locations, this is frustrating when there is already a diverse range of highly trained and capable artists across the regions and increases production costs. I understand actors and their needs; I also get the commercial side of film and television.
When I was 17 years old, I was paid to go to the Rose Dor Television Festival in Switzerland to network for a new production company. I secured meetings with major UK and Canadian networks. I went on to complete a BA Hons degree in Television Production at Bournemouth University, which is one of the best courses in Europe. I have a network of contacts gathered over the past 20 years. As you know the field is highly competitive and work cannot be promised– you may get auditions and still not get the part. Rural Artiste is committed to diversity and inclusion and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Rural Artiste is committed to ensuring the mental health and Wellbeing of all our artistes and have links in with local agencies that can support the pressure within the industry and the futility of the market.
