Rachel started training at the studio in 1998 and hasn't really left! As all good actors know, even when successful, they still need to attend the occasional class to brush up their skills. 
Professional work includes 2 years in Hollyoaks, 3 series in America of the award winning drama Switched At Birth and most recently White Gold.
One of the highlights of her career came last year when she won an Oscar for her short film The Silent Child.
Rachel and Amanda now run  the screen acting class ACTING MECHANICS  once a month in Hanley.
