    Hey!! My name is Cara. I live in Belfast along with my Mum, Dad and younger sister. As a young child I always had passion and enthusiasm for performing through singing and dancing. I have developed my skills and grown in confidence over the years since gaining experience in Theatre with NISMAT and through my training in Musical Theater.

    In 2019 through a community program I got the opportunity to be involved in a short on screen production. I enjoyed every minute of the experience and I was surprised at how naturally appearing and speaking on screen came to me. This has given me to motivation to seek performance opportunities both on screen and in theatre.

    I absolutely love to sing, my Mum tells me the house is quiet when I’m not at home as I’m always singing and practicing on my piano! I am pleased to be regularly chosen to sing solo and duets in my school performances which I love to be involved in and am often complimented about my singing ability. I am looking forward to new and exciting experiences.
