I have been acting since the age of 15 and attended part-time acting classes at the Mona Vale Film & TV school for 3 years, where I was trained by respected Australian actress Bunney Brooke. I performed in a number of plays with the Elanora Players, before taking a break from acting to pursue other career goals.
The love of acting called me back in 2011 and I enrolled in a 1-year full-time screen acting course with the Actor's Hub in Willoughby NSW. Since then, I have worked steadily in short films, commercials, corporate videos, music videos, web series and theatre.
I also enjoy writing & directing. I have my own production company called 'Janjechop Productions' and have completed a comedy web series called 'Living Together', a film called 'Neighbourhood Watch' that was entered into the Creative Creatures Film Festival & a variety of showreel pieces.
My most challenging stage role to-date has been portraying La Marquise de Merteuil in 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses'. In 2022, I directed a play called "Queen Takes Emperor" written by Rex McGregor for Bareboards at the Arts Theatre Cronulla.
I was also awarded Best Actress in a Leading Role for my portrayal of Nurse Ratched in 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest' for RABTA 2022 (Ruby's Annual Birthday & Theatre Awards) & Best Actress at Crash Test Drama Cronulla 2023 (Heat 1).
Most recently, I portrayed Stephanie Dickinson in 'Cactus Flower' at the Pavilion Theatre for the Castle Hill Players. Read the review here. I also directed a play called 'A Body Is Found' written by Chris Naylor for Bareboards at the Arts Theatre Cronulla.
