It all started at Primary School when Ms. Callus remarked that I should take good care of my writing as one day I could do wonders with it. Many years have passed from then on but I never forgot that encouraging comment…
From a young age, I started writing short novels in Maltese and participated in a number of writing competitions. Many of them were winners, the most prestigious being the First Place by Għaqda Letterarja Maltija for my novel ‘Il-Karijon’. As a freelance writer I contributed several articles both in Maltese and English for local magazines and newspapers. Currently I am a regular contributor to Torca newspaper with a two-page weekly article under the heading ‘Perspettivi’ (Perspectives). After just a few months, I was awarded 3rd place by the Institute of Maltese Journalists for Cultural Journalism for my articles ‘Perspettivi’. Shortly a few months thereon I was awarded Prix D’Honneur for Built Heritage by Din L-Art Ħelwa for my ‘Perspettivi’ article ‘Iċ-Ċimiterju B’Għajnejn Oħra’.
I worked in Public Relations for the new local TV station Family TV and then with Where’s Everybody Team for the programs ‘Xarabank’ and ‘Bijografiji’.
With Where’s Everybody I was also responsible for a new project-program ‘Bijografiji’ as its Production Assistant. Ultimately I produced the last program of this first series ‘Joseph Calleia – The Maltese Hollywood actor’ which was much appreciated by the audience.
Meanwhile I was also commissioned to do the English to Maltese translation for an audio-guide which was later used by Heritage Malta in St Paul’s Catacombs, Rabat, Malta.
All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages… William Shakespeare.
I can never remember when I started to act. Acting came out quite naturally as if it was a part of me. At first I used it to hide my true self and inner feelings to some of the people around me. Then I decided I could delve further into this sector and so I attended to some drama courses which led me to my first public appearance on stage during a musical ‘Iljieli Mediterranji’. From thereon I participated in several TV productions that, amongst others, included commercials and mainstream drama: ‘Pupi’, ‘Mirjana Coljero’, ‘Missjoni’, ‘Becky’, ‘Xhud’, ‘Amen’ and ‘Qalbinnies’.
Eventually I was assigned the main secondary part of Melissa, in the role of the wife of an ex-drug addict turned criminal, in ‘Is-Sigill tal-Qrar’.
