Emma Lister, Makeshift Company

Kellie Shirley knows about the highs and lows of being an actor in Britain. She chats to Emma Lister about resisting early pressure to shed her accent, her big break in a film that no one saw and  how she "went back to square one" before landing a dream job. Fame came knocking in the 00's with a reoccurring role on Britain's beloved soap, Eastenders (BBC), but with it came the paparazzi and sometimes being pigeon holed as a 'soap actor'.

Now she's starring in Idris Elba's warm hearted show In the Long Run ( Sky, Starz) and was selected to take part in the prestigious BAFTA Elevate program.

Kellie’s interview is another link in our ‘artist chain’ after having been nominated by Rhoda Ofori-Attah in the previous season!
