Erin first began treading the boards at the age of five in a school production of Peter Pan in her hometown of Malibu, California.  She then enjoyed a short stint as a child actor, making her debut in a Treasure Trolls commercial.  She has an honours degree from UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film and Television including a year studying abroad at the Samuel Beckett Centre, Trinity College Dublin. After graduation, Erin crossed the pond once again to train on the two year acting course at LAMDA.

Erin is also 1/2 of comedy duo Hunt The Vigan creators of viral comedy sketch Boobies in a Box which circled the globe with 5 million hits and featured in global press including the Huffington Post and Irish Sun.  The pair created web series A Quick Fortune a comedy set in post Depression era America about the madcap adventures of Kate & Archie scheming to win back her family fortune.  She has been nominated for a Best Actress award for her role in the series at the Bilbao Web Fest.

Titley, a finalist for the Digital Comedy Lab.  She played comedy foil Stephano in After The Tempest with renowned theatre-makers Teatro Vivo: a reinterpretation of the classic Shakespeare play, which performed in a tour of London parks.  Erin performed in the premiere of dark American comedy Companion Piece with Concorde Theatre, which received fantastic reviews and funding from the Arts Council.  And most recently, she shot a short film at the Saatchi Gallery called Elevator.

Erin plays the ukulele and is currently creating comedy songs about pregnancy and parenthood. She also has extensive dance training including eleven years of ballet along with African, swing, contemporary, jazz and capoiera.  She’s worked with acclaimed physical theatre ensemble, Tangled Feet, Firehouse Productions and is a company member of Ladder to the Moon, acting in a pioneer project remaking classic films in care homes.

In her spare time, Erin is an ardent traveller and has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro; she’s an avid skier and a dedicated foodie in search of London’s best restaurants.  She also has a slightly unhealthy obsession with French Bulldogs – the clowns of the dog world.
