My name is Deborah Lawal & I am a 17 year old ELAM Film & TV student, excited to immerse myself into the acting scene, as performing has always been a passion of mine from a very young age & I am ready to focus on developing this aspect of my life. I enjoy performing roles that are quite natural and realistic, as well as comedic and fiery. I believe I am more suited to characters that I can relate to as a teenager but can also delve into studying different complex character types, as well. My film course has benefited me in a way, as I have improved my skills in writing/creating scripts & also studying the necessary requirements an actor contributes to, in creating the story. I performed Street dance, as well as Tap Dance & Contemporary dancing for nearly 10 years- although I stopped because I wanted to focus & prioritise my GCSEs, whereby I achieved Grade 8s & 9s in my work- however when performing dance I was also graded many Distinctions & some merits in the past.
