Jane Garioni

Jane sat through Yul Bryner and Virginia McKenna’s performance of “The King and I” at the London Palladium when she was a tiny lass and then dreamt of being an actress and marrying a sophisticated bald headed man!

She trained at LAMDA after reading Law at University and continued acting whilst qualifying as a lawyer.

Highlights include being directed by Stephen Spielberg in “Munich” and playing the back end of a cow in a London community centre.

Nowadays, within film / TV, she tends to play the wife of Italian mafia gangsters. She is deeply committed to charities (especially relating to the Armed Forces and to Her Majesty’s prisons) and has recently applied to become a member of the FANY! (First Aid Nursing Yeomanry). She enjoys the variety of other role play including for the MOD and playing witnesses under cross examination for law training. She has a special interest in psychiatry because her father was a paediatric neuro psychiatrist and as with many actors, the line between “madness” and “normality” is often seemingly thin!
