Recently nominated for an Olivier Award for her performance as Cynthia Weil in Beautiful, Lorna's other theatre credits include Footloose (Novello/UK Tour), Evita (Adelphi) and Parade (Donmar).

As she prepares to walk the red carpet at the Royal Opera House on Sunday, we take a look into her dressing room and find out five items she couldn't live without.


The dressing room...

1. The miracle cure...

LW: Sandersons throat specific. This will get me through a show when my voice is croaky. It's my miracle cure!

2. The BFF's...

LW: This picture of my girlfriends. We've been best friends for years and this photo makes me smile.

3. The inspiration...

LW: My picture of Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann. This helps me get into character each night, and reminds me that I'm playing a real person which is important. Cynthia is so chic in this photo, I adore it!

4. The skincare regime...

LW: My Liz Earle skincare. Putting make up on every day isn't kind to the skin so this is my saviour!

5. The comfort...

LW: My cushion. An opening night gift from my dresser, Emily. It's a very comfy pillow between shows and I love the words, it keeps me feeling positive!
