Rebecca Hickey, Actress / Director
On leaving St. Columbas, Rebecca studied for three years at The Arts Educational School in London on the Musical Theatre Degree Programme and graduated with a BA Honours Degree in Musical Theatre.
Rebecca then directed HAIR, The Musical in Dublins Helix Theatre. The show was nominated for two awards at the AIMS Awards 2010 and won The Spirit of AIMS Award.
After that, Rebecca was cast as June in the short film Unspoken and then voiced the character of DeeDee in the pilot episode of The Rockateens Cartoon. Rebecca then played Rodney in My Big Gay Italian Wedding. This was the European Premiere of the hit show and had an extended run in London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show was shortlisted for the Off-West End Awards.
Rebecca was involved in several other productions including a dark Tim Burton- esque musical called Nevermore, based on the life and loves of Edgar Allen Poe.
More recently, Rebecca appeared in the new Bond film Skyfall but only time will tell whether she will be on screen or the cutting room floor!
Rebecca also appeared in a short comedy production on behalf of Amnesty International.
Currently she is working on a new production and on 27th July will be in the cast for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London.
Rebecca is pleased with the progress that she has made in the two years since she left College, and will continue along her yellow brick road.
