2011 Awardee: Roslyn Paterson


Gourock-born Roslyn has been interested in acting since her school-days when she impressed with her natural talent. For five years, she was an active member of the Inverclyde Youth Theatre (Kayos Theatre Company), where she was cast in many leading roles to great acclaim.

While a pupil at James Watt College in Greenock Roslyn achieved an A grade in Acting and Performance and subsequently won a place at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London part-funded by a Dance and Drama Award. She is studying for both a BA in Acting and a Diploma in Professional Acting at Trinity College, London. Roslyn is considered to be a huge talent not just in acting, but also in dance and singing.

Roslyn is entering the final year of her studies at ALRA.

How the Award Helped
