Claudette Clarke is an Actor of African-Caribbean heritage. Growing up in London, she had come to largely identify as a ‘Black British’ Actor of the United Kingdom. As a Sydney-based resident, one has to glance at her portfolio to appreciate the breadth and aptitude of her work in universally-loved classic adaptations particularly “To Kill a Mockingbird”, “Doubt”, “The Crucible” and “The Clink”.
Claudette’s work includes multi-ethnic ensemble development pieces, dealing with prejudice and community struggles, such as “The African Theatre Project” Play “My Name is Sud”. She has a powerful stage presence, steadfastly commanding the space and adapting comfortably to different accents—Creole, Cockney, British, and American, as required.
