I attended MTADA in 1977. Ten years later I joined MASK and made my comeback in Carlo Goldoni’s , Il Ventaglio as Giannina. Then I joined other drama groups and played several leading parts. Considering drama as my love, my style and my life, I moved into television playing Hilda in Ipokriti and then many parts with Hermann Bonaci Productions. With this same production house, I have also been a producer and presenter.
In 2007 & 2009 I played Zeza in the musical comedy Zeza tal-Flagship, performing as a singer, actress and dancer. I also played the leading role, Grace, in local film “Qerq”. In 2012 I had a cameo part in international film “The Devil’s Double” as Sadaam’s Hussien wife Sajida with actor Dominic Cooper and Director Lee Tamahori.

The moment on stage or television you treasure most:
Everything….since I was young I always hoped and dreamed that this should be my career. And now that I’m living my dream, I treasure every moment of it.
The moment on stage or television you wish it never happened:
Thank God no such experience.
If you weren’t an actor/actress, what would you like to be… and why:
This is very hard to answer as being Frida has always been my dream. If I wasn’t, maybe who knows? A film star!
