What's in my dressing room? - Ellie Piercy

We went backstage with the Sideways actress

Ellie Piercy

Ellie Piercy is currently starring as Maya in Sideways at St James Theatre. Her previous theatre credits include Eventide at the Arcola Theatre, As You Like It and Romeo and Juliet at the Globe and Much Ado About Nothing at the Manchester Royal Exchange.

We caught up with her to find out which five items she couldn't live without.

My dressing room. I never really move in or remember the useful things like towels or hair brushes. I have some make up that has lasted for years but there are essentials and bits that would be hard to be without.

The Food

EP: I'm a bit of a show snacker...

The Kids' Notes

The Lavender Oil

EP: Things to keep me calm. I'm not really sure if they work but I think they do... I'll keep trying.

The Yoga Mat

EP: Totally essential for a place to drop off to catch 20 minutes of sleep.

The Toy Horse

EP: A horse for playing games... I normally have Bananagrams but I haven't got that game on this show as there hasn't been time!

Sideways runs at the St James Theatre until 9 July.
