Amy Loughton

Amy is a creative and collaborative performer who is equally happy hanging from the ceiling, knee deep in juicy text work or working to pair her acting with her activism through forum theatre.

She is currently touring with Cardboard Citizens, as they celebrate their 25th year in Cathy by Ali Taylor, a modern look at Ken Loach’s Cathy Come Home. After a sell out run and great reviews at the Pleasance, Cathy is now touring to theatres, hostels & prisons around the UK.

Amy has toured previously both nationally and internationally in a variety of work including with two new Alan Ayckbourn plays, directed by the man himself. She played Sonya in his new adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya to great reviews and Magda in Neighbourhood Watch, Ayckbourn’s 75th new play, touring around Britain and to New York as part of the Brits off Broadway Festival.

She has also performed at theatres across Britain, from the Royal National Theatre to Keswick’s beautiful Theatre by the Lake. She has worked with various established writers on new projects, including Mark Ravenhill, Sue Townsend, Ali Taylor and  Lucy Kirkwood and loves the challenge of developing new work.

She was also fortunate enough to work at the New Vic, Stoke-on-Trent & trained for five months as a silks aerialist for Theresa Heskins’ fantastic adaptation of Peter Pan.

Film and TV credits include Eastenders, Doctors and Holby City for the BBC, and Amy was seen in the role of Miss Campbell in the adaption of Emma (BBC). She also had a leading role in award winning short film No Way Through and was seen as Welsh Andi Rodrigues in the Warp Films/Sky TV collaboration Talking To The Dead.

She will soon hit the screens as female lead Clare Crowhurst in feature film Crowhurst directed by Simon Rumley and in AUX for Evolutionary Films.
