'Acting Can Be Murder' with Linda Regan

Time: 14:00 - 15:00

FREE - Just Turn Up

Linda Regan’s signature talk "Acting can be Murder" is infused with comedy anecdotes from her extensive career in the performing arts, (where she felt murderously inclined on more than one occasion!) and the experiences which influenced her transition into writing tense, psychological thrillers. Including, her novel Dead Like Her (2009), which depicts a serial killer of women who resemble Marylin Monroe, inspired by Linda's own experience portraying Marylin.

Playing such iconic characters has made Linda's signature brand of “strong crime” so unique, as she expertly applies her understanding of character and storytelling to bring her characters to life. Alongside her crime writing, Linda is well known for her recurring role in the hit BBC sitcom Hi-De-Hi! and guest appearances in popular shows The Bill, Birds of a Feather, Doctors, and Holby City. Linda grew up and currently lives in South London with her husband, Brian Murphy.

As part of Orpington Literary Festival.
