With so many unemployed actors already on its books, you would imagine that London dreads seeing a new batch of drama school graduates each July. Fortunately 2011’s input is sweetened by the presence of Isabelle Rose.
North London born and bred but with a helping of Lebanese genetics to keep her different, Isabelle trained at Mountview before studying French and Film Studies at UCL. While a love of languages kept her going, it was obvious that she would always long to build a career on the stage and was delighted to be offered a place at Drama Studio in 2010.
After a year of corsets, movement classes and line-learning Isabelle’s prospects are looking better than ever and she has even recently turned down her first role in a questionable film. Come July she will be living the dream as an unemployed actor, although no doubt very briefly, glass of red wine in hand.
