Talia Kirsten Lois Murray
Hiya, I’m Talia and I love performing. I am very passionate in what I do. I work very hard and always give my best on any work I engage in. I enjoy acting ( both musical theatre on stage and screen acting), singing and dancing. I love to dream. I love working with fellow performers/artists in drama, singing, music and dance courses, workshops, competitions, classes and shows. I seek new opportunities to better myself in developing my skills and learn from all teachers and professional artists who I have been privileged to be coached by. I am confident, happy, positive, kind, sociable and curious. I am a people person. I am a good listener.
