Louise Burke

Louise’s acting career began after she graduated from the University of Glasgow with an MA in French and Hispanic Studies. Having studied in detail the works of many French, German, Portuguese and Spanish literary greats, it only seemed natural for her to move into the world of TV, Film and Theatre. After training privately as an actress in her hometown of Glasgow with acting coach Mark Westbrook, Louise moved to London in 2015 which marked the commencement of her private singing training with leading vocal coach Mary Hammond, during which time she has worked on a variety of genres including jazz, pop and musical theatre, which culminated in her receiving praise on her vocals from Mitch Winehouse when she sang briefly for him in the Pizza Express Jazz Club in 2017. She has been cast in various small roles for several BBC productions, and has appeared in various commercials and short films. She has recently auditioned for lead roles in a TV programme and a feature film, and was recently cast in a lead role in Michael Storey’s play A Tale of Two Roses and musical The Phantom of Notre Dame, the first shows of which are planned for June 2019 in Ipswich and London (Sadler’s Wells). She plans to use the forthcoming year and her 1-year Acting training with the Bridge Theatre School as a platform to launch her lifelong career in the industry. Louise is also a freelance translator for the United Nations in New York and is fluent in French, Spanish, Portuguese and German (not to mention her mother tongue, English!). She is currently based between London and Glasgow.
