About me:

"Anca Vaida's grasp of the various roles she plays is a masterclass in ‘mood’ acting"- Boyz. "Anca Vaida is the glue that holds the narrative together, her presence, comedic timing is flawless" - Live London Post. "Anca Vaida was completely committed and hilarious. She made me nervous she made me laugh and I looked forward to her appearances in the scenes." - Fairy Powered Productions. “Anca Vaida was the star of the show with her dual roles of Luna/Equador. These characters are the soul of the play, and Vaida plays both roles with fervour” - Upper-circle.
