Clare is the third child of a big Irish family raised in Manchester, North West Uk. With a background of singing, dancing and general entertaining, it seemed a natural decision to pursue her love of the performing arts and train to be an actress. As Clare herself jokingly states "Everyone acts & entertains in my family. Just lucky to get paid for it".After graduating from Bretton Hall College of Performing Arts, she started out training adult special needs groups in drama and directing youth groups at Bradford Playhouse Theatre until she eventually made the transition to professional actress. Her major break was as the irascible Pc. Natalie Metcalfe in the award winning drama "The Cops" produced by the legendary Tony Garnett of "Cathy Come Home"; "Kes", "This Life". Since then her career has gone from strength to strength, she has constantly tried to maintain a balance through her roles reflecting her commitment to both screen and stage and is enjoying terrifying herself with many a wordy stage script to test her opening night nerves.
