About me:

"Our heroine is portrayed by the excellently cast Debra Hill as a refreshingly feisty head-strong young woman" (Irish News) "However, Hill stole the show. Hill ticked all the boxes, as she had the audience in a wrinkle from the moment she walked on stage" (Eile Magazine) " immense challenge of understated and sometimes overstated emotion which Hill masters beat for beat. Hill's portrayal is the epitome of 'under the skin' acting where you're not playing a role, but are the role" (The Big List)
