Niamh Deasy – British / Irish

Niamh recently graduated from Rose Bruford College with a First-Class Honours Degree in Acting. Whilst there, Niamh took on a variety of leading roles that pushed her to develop a wide range of interesting characters within Shakespeare, comedic and absurd productions.  Niamh originally comes from Chelmsford in Essex and has a base in West Cork, Ireland where she loves to swim in the sea, horse ride and sing in the local pubs.

Niamh has a keen interest in new writing, similarly to the characters she loves to play, Niamh looks for authentic, raw material that has something to say. She has previously produced and directed her own production called ‘On Her Terms’ and most recently wrote ‘Solo’ which was produced as part of Rose Bruford’s New Writing Season. Niamh also enjoys reinventing characters; this includes her portrayal of Ophelia where she strove to bring out her relatability to women of the 21st century.

Niamh is a strong singer, specialising in contemporary Jazz, soul, and folk music. She plays the guitar and has become a competent singer-songwriter, taking influence from traditional Irish folk music and soul classics.

Niamh’s previous credits include playing leading lady Victoria Carlisle in the short film ‘Inherent’, directed by Ross Jameson. Set during WW2, she was able to refine her screen acting skills and hopes to do more period and historical projects in the future.

Most recently, Niamh performed in the sold-out Camden Fringe comedic play ‘The Lodger’ by Lauren Lewis at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre.
