ASSOCIATE ARTIST- KING'S HEAD THEATRE

 

Shelley Lang is a Scottish and Australian actor based in London and Glasgow. Born and raised in Blantyre, Strathclyde, she emigrated with her family to Perth Australia aged 10. She returned to the UK in 2004 to attend The Poor School in London.

Shelley became an Associate Artist of The King's Head Theatre through her consistent work with the company, notably the World Premiere's of Tennessee Williams' I Never Get Dressed Till After Dark On Sundays' (nominated 'Best Actress' at the OffWestEnd Awards) and Terence Rattigan and John Gieldgud's A Tale Of Two Cities. Recent credits include the first English production of Liz Lochhead's Mary Queen Of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off  in the much-coveted role of 'La Corbie' directed by Olivier Award-winning director Robin Norton-Hale, and the critically acclaimed title role in Gareth Calwallader's Cleopatra. She has just finished a run of a new adaptation of Dorian Gray at The Riverside Studios alongside Jack Fox and Daisy Bevan.

Television and film work includes Chris Nolan's Inception and the ongoing role of 'Daniella Hendry' in BBC Scotland's River City.
