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 £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.

Previous work includes playing the role of ‘Jess Phillips’ in Raffaello Degruttola’s drama ‘Little Boxes’. The film has gone on to win countless awards at international film festivals including: The Berlin World International, The Hong Kong International and the Rome Movie Awards. In my final production at drama school, I played the main role of ‘Susie Salmon’ in ‘The Lovely Bones’.

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.
