Sheetal Kapoor

British Asian Actress

Bio

I am a a British Asian actress born in London and I trained at Drama Studio London on their 1 year postgraduate Acting course. I have a base in London and Birmingham.

For the past few years, my main focus has been theatre. I have appeared in many productions in the UK and had a few amazing opportunities overseas. My forte has been comedic roles and those that involve a lot of physical theatre. My most recent work includes: Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Bermuda Festival), The Pupil (co-lead) in Matthew Parker's 5 Star production, The Lesson (The Hope Theatre) and Gauhar Jaan (lead) in Gauhar Jaan: The Datia Incident (Omnibus Theatre).

I also really love film and voiceover work - Rukhsati a short film where I played the co-lead won the Film's Short People's Choice award and made the official selection for the Bend film festival. My favourite voiceover job was when I had the great opportunity to play various roles in BBC Radio's Midnight's Children. I also have a lot of experience with corporate videos and live training, where my Business Computing & IT degree and IT consultancy work experience has proved to be useful. I am really looking to expand my tv and film experience.

I also enjoy singing and dancing. I was the choreographer for A Midsummer Night's Dream, where director, Helen Tennison wanted a Bollywood dance sequence to be led by me and to involve the entire cast. I really love travelling, new experiences and watching stand-up comedy. I am also a skilled fine artist, I work in different mediums from acrylic paints, chalk and even sketches on my tablet. I would say my guilty pleasure is consuming an entire packet of chocolate biscuits with tea.

"Sheetal Kapoor as Puck captivated us with subtle, sly, ironic humour backed with huge, almost preternatural physical energy" - A Midsummer Night's Dream - Royale Gazette

 

"The show is a little stolen by the young, eager, doomed Pupil - Sheetal Kapoor, whose mobile face and quivering physical presence were absolutely exceptional, fascinating performances" - The LessonTheatre Box
★★★★★

 

"Kapoor is wonderfully exuberant, brimming with childlike innocence and a thirst for learning, complemented with a pinafore and braid. the shocking end, which she then makes disturbingly realistic, is a real testament to her versatility" - The Lesson - View from the Gods
★★★★
