Freya Lewis

Actress, Author & Motivational Speaker


I am a recent LMA London Drama School graduate, with a BA(Hons) Acting and Performance degree. Based in London, I am currently un-signed after intensive training in both screen and stage, and I am actively seeking representation.

In 2017, I was seriously injured in the Manchester Arena attack, and lost my close friend, Nell. After suffering 29 separate injuries and almost 20 operations, I rebuilt my life and managed to raise almost £75,000 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, where I was treated. In recognition, I received the 2018 NHS Hero Young Fundraiser Award and the Amplifon awards for Young Hero and Overall Hero. As a motivational speaker, I have spoken at events about the importance of seeking help for mental health issues.

Following my recovery, in 2020, I released my debut autobiography titled ‘What Makes Us Stronger’, which went on to become a number 1 best seller on Amazon.

I am a passionate, creative performer, with a love for entertainment. I also have a developing interest in directing, writing and producing. I am ready and raring to enter the wonderful acting industry.
