Dervla McSorley

Age: 13 yrs & 10 mths

Hey! I’m Dervla a quietly confident, determined and fun loving 13 year old.  I have been told that I could sing before I could talk and dance before I could walk!  Since then, I have come a long way and alongside singing and dancing I love to act, perform, and play instruments.  I have been fortunate to have been able to develop my skills even further since joining MuchAdo Stage School at the age of 4.  I am an avid reader and love nothing more than to get lost in a book.  I love to be challenged and the idea of filming on screen really excites me!  I am extremely motivated, grounded and approach every day with positivity and a smile.
