Clare Hingott – star of the SkyTV comedy series – STELLA
Clare comes from a family of performers and professional musicians, her Great Grandfather performed with composers such as Elgar and List. Keen amateur dramatists, her parents encouraged her performing enthusiasm and her acting experience dates back to the tender age of 3 when she first appeared on stage in her family’s infamous basement theatre that sat an audience of only 20!
Clare qualified as a secondary school teacher before embarking on a life’s ambition of becoming a professional actress. After gaining a scholarship she trained at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
Since graduating she has worked extensively on Welsh TV and her credits include various roles in TV drama series, film and theatre work. As well as acting she has presented several children’s programmes for the BBC and S4C.
Clare’s quirkiness and diversity has led to her to many genres of acting including the lead characters in numerous cartoon series, she also has a vast amount of voice over experience.
