Cara Magennis

Age: 15 yrs & 11 mths

Hi, my name is Cara. I have been involved in Musical Theatre from the age of six, however my family would probably say I’ve been a performer since birth! In recent years after having worked on Game of Thrones (S8) and The Frankenstein Chronicles, I have also discovered a love for tv and screen production acting.

I have been trained in dancing, singing and acting with companies, such as, McMasters Stage School (Bangor), Gillian Doogan School of Dance, St Agnes Choral Society, The Grand Opera House (Belfast) and The Lyric Theatre (Belfast). I’ve been lucky enough to work with esteemed individuals, including David Benioff and D.B Weiss and the Game of Thrones S8 cast, Sean Bean and Alex Gabassi (The Frankenstein Chronicles S2), Fra Fee and Anthony Boyle, Paul Boyd and Tony Finnegan, Jonathan Kiley and last but not least ‘May McFettridge’ (GOH Pantos).

I’m enthusiastic about life, school, acting, singing and dancing (performing in general!). I take direction well and pick up on things quickly, I welcome any advice and enjoy learning from others and I always strive to do my best in everything.
