Clare Stopford

1st Lang: English (fluent)     
Eyes: Blue Green     Hair: Blonde/red     Height: 1.63     

Trained as a performer at the University of Cape Town in the mid 1970s, Clare’s career as an actress spanned 15 years on stage and television until she turned to directing. After directing stage and television for the last 15 years as well as teaching at the University of Cape Town, Clare returns to acting in a new role: that of a mature woman.

Clare trained and practised as an actress before becoming a director of stage and television under the mentorship of co-founder of the Market Theatre, Barney Simon. She has subsequently directed numerous actors in 40 productions on stage and screen, always with excellent results. As a Senior Lecturer in the Drama Department of the University of Cape Town Clare has taught acting, vocal skills and directing to students of performance and theatre making. As Clare retires this year her availability is now wide open.
