THE TEAM

ALEXANDRIA ANFIELD
Artistic Director

Talent, passion and commitment can be found anywhere. Original Impact wants to give the casting opportunities to everyone despite what their academic background may be. There are so many paths you can take as a young adult and not one leads you on the same journey. 
I enjoy bringing actors together from all different walks of life and in return they bring their experiences from their chosen journeys in order for us to share and create something magical. 

Alexandria has worked professionally as an Actor and Director since graduating in 2013. 
She has worked in the UK, Canada, Tanzania and across Europe and continues to push the ideas of exploration in theatre and the development of new work. 

Alexandria holds a strong passion for travel that drives her to pursue work and opportunities abroad. Although like some kind of proud mum who loves to bake without using recipes, you can often expect small treats during long rehearsal days which brighten up your day.

She enjoys wine of any colour, talking to strangers and, weirdly, interior design magazines. She finds writing about herself in third person a bit awkward.
