British actress, writer and director Sunnie Sidhu was born and raised in London. She studied Journalism, TV and Film Production at Coventry University but, upon graduating, decided to pursue an acting career. With no previous acting experience, Sunnie was accepted at the prestigious Drama Centre London on the grounds that she had “natural raw talent”. Drama Centre London has produced actors such as Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, Anne-Marie Duff and Colin Firth.

Spotted at her showcase by British film producer Damian Jones (The Iron Lady, The History Boys, Kidulthood) for having ‘talent and great comic timing, which is rare’, she has since worked in film, theatre, commericals, short films and online projects. 

As a writer she predominately writes gritty dramas and dark comedy. She has concentrated on combining her acting and writing skills to create her own online comedy series named Camden Calling. This propelled further interest and as a result she developed TV drama and comedy series (Dead Vintage, 360 and Hey Kid) with Hat Trick productions (Father Ted, Fone Jacker). Sunnie also made her first short film The Runner ( www.therunnerfilm.co.uk) which has received positive feedback from industry and is currently in the festival circuit. It has been selected for Emerge Festival 2019, celebrating emerging British talent. She recently won a place on and completed the highly competitive and respected ITV multi-camera directors scheme 2019, working on continuing drama such as Coronation Street. Sunnie is a Soho Script House finalist 2019 (judges included Barry Jenkins and Anurag Kashyap etc), she was recently shortlisted for the Writer Slam 2019 for Triforce and Amazon Studios and currently has a crime drama in development with Noel Clarke and Jason Maza‘s production company Unstoppable.  Other exciting projects in development include Blue Hollywood, The Last Age, Gypsy Dog, Danny, Mood, The Seven Ages of Eve, Man of Land, Elements and Rookery House.  Sunnie has pitched to ITV, BBC, Netflix and Channel 4, who express ongoing interest in her work.
