Finding Noor

“Finding Noor” at the Citizens Theatre turned out to be an absolute joy. Worked with a great team, played a range of wild and wacky characters, and learned a lot about the amazing real life of Noor Inayat Khan, WW2 spy and war hero. Here is a picture of me as a Sufi Mystic for your enjoyment…Image

‘Boom!’ – a new pilot!

BoomCastBwExcited to be part of Snap-B TV’s exciting new youth drama, ‘Boom!’, written and directed by TOWIE director Steve Rehman.

I play Tess, lead singer of pop band ‘Burning Secret’, who are struggling to make it in the UK industry – though perhaps with their new manager, things are looking up?

Filming was completed in mid-August and is currently in post-production. In the meantime, check out the ‘Boom’ facebook page HERE!

Happy Birthday Party!

Birthday Party receives four star reviews, and bossyboots Lulu gets some sneaky mentions!

“The Birthday Party is a stunning piece of writing and this was a first-class performance led by an excellent cast.” – I Love Manchester


“Towering performances are given by the whole cast” – Manchester Theatre

The Birthday Party Production Still “Danusia Samal’s naively greed Lulu, clambering eagerly onto Goldberg’s lap, is an innocent destined to get her acquisitive fingers burnt” – The Times


“Danusia Samal is the lovely Lulu, a seemingly innocent character dealt with disturbingly by both characters and playwright.” – British Theatre Guide


“Danusia Samal’s Lulu has everything a ‘good girl’ needs to go bad – looks, inquisitiveness and moral
s which can be cut to fit all sizes, all ages, and any occasion” – Daily Post
