Jenny wants to follow in Amanda Holden’s footsteps

Jenny Tilley

A young Bishopstoke actress is hoping to raise £14,000 to help her achieve her dream of following in the footsteps of local star Amanda Holden.

Talented Jenny Tilley 23, beat off competition from hundreds of aspiring actors to be offered one of only 24 places at the  prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London studying Musical Theatre, the same academy which  put Bishops Waltham’s own Amanda Holden – of ITV’s  ‘Britain’s got Talent – on the road to stardom.

Formerly a student at Barton Peveril, Jenny was a member of Eastleigh’s Centrestage Youth Theatre for many years and received a Curtain Call nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Nancy in their production of Oliver!

Jenny, who is currently finishing degree at Manchester University, has so far managed to save £2,000 herself but with still another £12,000 to find, she has set up her own funding page.

Says Jenny:

“This is an opportunity I really can’t turn down and I don’t want the small matter of money to prevent myself achieving my dream.”

    Jenny went Barton Peveril college as did Best Actor Oscar winner Colin Firth and more recently Britain’s got Talent finalist Kai Widdrington.
