Emily Porter

I graduated from The Iver Make- Up Academy in early 2018, and have since been fortunate enough to gain experience across TV, Film and Theatre. I am hard-working, focused and would take great care in ensuring I am an efficient and easy fit for a new team or department. Currently, I am seeking Junior roles and am very eager to take on new challenges to advance my knowledge.
