Annie Lees-Jones is a British Actress. Born October 11, 1977 and raised with her twin brother on Canvey Island, Essex to sheet metal worker Alan Jones (father) and receptionist Lynda Jones (mother). She graduated from Masters Performing Arts College originally as a dancer, a somewhat different career path to her childhood aspirations to grow up to be an FBI Agent. At the age of 13, Annie was the youngest performer to appear in a professional production of Calamity Jane leading to a career in theatre. Growing up a bit of a tomboy turning up for ballet exams with grazed knees and even stitches on one occassion, her love of all things sporty and 80’s boys films led to a keen interest in fighting… or at least the choreography behind fighting without getting actually getting hurt! She left dance college and trained with Youngblood, a fighting school specialising in advance performance fighting and went on to work as an action actress. But her love of comedy and natural flair couldn’t hide behind boxing gloves and with a quirky sense of humour and creative nature she went on to be nominated best comedy actress in a production of Shakers along with touring the UK and Europe in productions such as Much Ado About Nothing as Beatrice, Romeo & Juliet in the wonderful role of the Nurse, The Tempest on Fire, a spectacular fire show performing as Ariel on a trapeze rig, the world premiere of Mandrake as the loyal servant Siro to outstanding reviews and the delightful farce Touch & Go as Jessica. Her first TV appearance was a small role in The State We’re In (BBC) and later the leads pro wrestling mum Mother Load in the ITV children’s series My Phone Genie.
