HandleBards Orange Wheel Icon


Lianne’s favourite colour is probably green. She comes from Peterborough (but often tells people she comes from Cambridge because no-one seems to know anything about Peterborough and it makes her appear more posh). Before training at RADA, she landed her first filmed role dressed as a carrot walking a donkey named George round a field for six hours (her and George still meet up regularly for coffee). Since graduating a year ago, Lianne has appeared in A NAUGHTY NIGHT OF NOEL COWARD (The Old Red Lion), ENVELOPED IN VELVET (Arts Theatre), BANKSTERS (The White Bear Theatre), BARDO AND GALORE (Sheffield Crucible), NOT SAFE FOR WORK (Channel 4) and CLICKBAIT (Solent TV). She is really excited about her new adventure as a HandleBard, and can’t wait to get pedalling!

And her favourite Shakespeare quote?

“Thine face is not worth sunburning.”

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

Is the incredible sense of joy and fun that each person in the company radiates. It’s infectious, and is a massive part of why I think the shows are so special.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I would give him a pencil and ask him ‘2B or not 2B?’ I’d have to explain the pun obviously, but I think he’s a man who appreciates wordplay.

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

…I wouldn’t want to rate adventures, I still want to think that every day has the possibility to be a new, even bigger one. (Although that time we got lost in those Czech Mountains…)
