Hayley Angel Holt (previously: Wardle) is an actress born in London, England.

Early life[edit]

Holt spent the formative years of her childhood growing up in the South Bank area. She was originally brought up in Southwark, and educated at the Grey Coat Hospital in Sloane Square. Her father is musician Jah Wobble.[1] She studied drama at the Anna Scher Theatre, as well as classical ballet at the London Studio Centre.

Career[edit]

In 2000 as a teenager, Holt's first break came playing the daughter of Anita Dobson and Leslie Grantham in the screen revival for two-part drama The Stretch for Sky1. She also guest starred in an episode of the BBC drama The Robinsons with Hugh Bonneville and Martin Freeman.

She played one of the lead roles as drummer Neve, on Channel 4 TV series Totally Frank,[2] about a girl band, which aired between 2005-2006. Holt played the drums for this role and toured nationwide UK venues as the band Frank, who also released a single and album.

Holt played Kitty Mason in Sky1's drama, Martina Cole's The Take[3][4] opposite Tom Hardy and Brian Cox. She appeared in the 2008 rockabilly horror film Flick[5][6] (released in North America late Nov 2010) as Young Sally Andrews alongside Faye Dunaway, Hugh O'Conor and Liz Smith.

Holt appeared as the lead actress Sophie in the debut of a new comedy musical Departure Lounge[7] at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival at the George Square Theatre, which won the Scotsman Edinburgh Fringe award for Best Music. In 2014, Holt played the role of Welsh party girl Angharad in comedy Three Little Birds[8] for New Diorama Theatre.

In 2015, Holt returned to education after being offered a place at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama to study for an MA in Applied Theatre. Holt graduated in 2016 having written her paper exploring whether comedy can be used as an effective communication tool to challenge mainstream society and their existing perspectives of the socially excluded.

Holt is a Director and is currently an Associate Director on Educated[9] at Battersea Arts Centre. Holt was previously Associate Director on BOUDICCA at Jacksons Lane, and various projects for Almeida Theatre, Arcola Theatre, Tricycle Theatre as well as Movement Director for Access All Areas Theatre Company.[10]
