Hannah is a Gloucestershire based actress. She says that the last time she filmed in Wales she almost died from pneumonia, so she’s very glad that filming Soul Mates was an altogether much nicer, warmer experience!
If Hannah looks familiar it’s because of the amount of TV she’s done recently, including playing Laura Dean, in S4C/BBC Wales’s acclaimed Hinterland plus Rose in Leonardo’s Fourth Wall (Channel 4). Hannah’s first feature film The Young Cannibals will be released later this year.

After graduating as an actor from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Andrea toured large chunks of the world with the British Council. She often describes her life on tour as a cross between attending glamorous diplomatic balls and sweeping cockroaches out of her dressing room.
After a couple of years with Hull Truck Theatre Company, Andrea was back on the road touring the UK. She acknowledges that weekly rep was one of the hardest jobs she’s ever done (and that includes cleaning shower drains and bringing up two kids). “Think about it, you have to rehearse one play in the day, while performing another in the evening. I kept merging my Aykebourne and Pinter. The audience must’ve been so confused.”
It wasn’t long after that the she decided to become a writer and director. “The toll of having to stay slim and exfoliate was too much. As a writer, I don't have to change out of my lycra or make small talk. “ Andrea has written over 400 adverts and several screenplays including “Nice Day for a Welsh Wedding” for the BBC and “’Twas The Shift Before Christmas”.
