Fiona Samuel

Fiona Samuel is one of those talents who has worked prolifically across so many fields, she defies labels: she has worked variously as an actor on stage and screen (Stroke, Lemming Aid), playwright (The Wedding Party), director (TV movies Bliss, Home Movie), singer (musical revue Babes in the Mood) and scriptwriter (Outrageous Fortune).

The biggest challenges seem to offer the best personal rewards.
