Well known for playing Carly Wicks in Eastenders, Kellie Shirley is currently appearing as Pauline in One Man, Two Guvnors at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

So Kellie, what is your favourite…..

TV Programme?
Breaking Bad and I also love documentaries.

Place to hang out in London?
I love South Bank, Peckham Rye. An afternoon in the cinema – Shortwave over in London Bridge hits the spot. Borough Market for a cheeky free sample and also the river.

A very spicy Bloody Mary!

"I went up for that"

Play/Musical that you have seen?
Home at the National Theatre’s Shed blew me away – a gritty piece of drama with song & beat boxer Grace Savage.

Theatre to perform in?
All of them, variety is the spice of life. I love the Royal Court, National Theatre, Soho Theatre and Peckham Local.

Theatre to visit?
The Theatre Royal Haymarket, it’s a beautiful theatre and I love performing here! We close in One Man, Two Guvnors on 1st March so you only have few weeks left to come and see us!

The National Theatre’s smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors will complete its West End run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 1 March 2014, as previously announced, prior to a third UK and Ireland tour beginning in May 2014.
