23 Dec Claire Aston
As a toddler, Claire would correct her exhausted dad when he tried to skip bits of her bedtime stories. That probably tells you everything you need to know about her, to be honest.
It was a natural progression after that to studying English Literature at university, spending years as a children’s non-fiction book writer, editor, proofer and production manager, moving into communications for the UK academic network, then jacking it all in to train as an actor. After working professionally for a few years, she decided that her brain wasn’t made for the stress of an actor’s life, and she now works as an events manager for her partner’s murder mystery company and loves her ‘second job’ of audio proofreading. Acting is now strictly for fun! She lives in the south of the UK with her long-suffering partner plus a small fluffy white dog who loves mud and a sweet scaredy cat.
