Cara Linden

Age: 14

Hey!! My name is Cara. I live in Belfast along with my Mum, Dad and sister. I’ve always had passion and enthusiasm for performing through singing and dancing from a young age. I have developed my skills and grown in confidence over the years since gaining experience in Theatre through NISMAT and The Rainbow Factory, as well as through undertaking grading exams in Musical Theatre. 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 gave me the confidence and motivation to seek performance opportunities both on screen and in theatre. I absolutely love to sing and dance, my Mum tells me the house is very quiet when I’m not at home as I’m always singing loudly practicing my musical theatre songs or strumming and singing songs with my Ukulele! I’m regularly chosen to sing solo and duets in my school performances and drama schools. I get a real buzz being involved in all aspects of productions and I’m often complimented about my singing, dancing and acting abilities. I’m delighted to be part of the Rising Talent Agency and I am very much looking forward to new and exciting opportunities and experiences.
