Emmy (yes, like the awards!)
- CREATOR & PROPRIETOR 

Hey Y'all!...

I'm Emmy; a British actor,* comedy writer/performer ,  ToddlerMamma to 2 year old Willow & Huuuuge tedhead!

Ted sure has got me through some bad times & I am super grateful. for the make-yourself-a-cuppa-and-settle-down  full story, see 'about' page for the history of my lil'tour.

I am a Richmond local & have called London  home for 24 years, but i am originally & proudly from Manchester.  and yep!- City fan - like all Real Mancunians ;), so you will hear my accent is a little similar to Jamie Tartt's, I hope to bring a taste of the North of England to your tour!

As an actor I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO ENJOY GUEST LEADS FOR THE BBC, ITV, CHANNEL 4, AMC, CHANNEL 5 & NETFLIX.  Fun fact: I have been admitted to holby city general hospital (That's fictional Americans!) overnight, more times than I have a real life NHS hospital!

As a writer I sold my first comedy drama to itv, (one of our commercial terrestrial channels), and with my sketch comedy co-writer/performer, lorelei Mathias, have been fortunate enough to receive nods & praise from edinburgh international television festival, chorts, comedy central, bbc & funny women. (Holy maloney those above paragraphs were hard to write as a british person. we hate bigging ourselves up!)  i am currently working on an autogbioraphcal screenpplay about love & suicide loss. i love to pop on ted after writing sessions to pick-me-up!

I also ADORE the USA and Americans! I consider myself an 'americanophile'. I am very extroverted, very loud, and not your typical brit! when I first visited when I was 6 years old, i felt like I'd arrived 'home', it was a very deep rooted feeling, very unexplained, & I still feel like this today! But I very much believe in synchronicity, destiny  & all things hippy-dipppy like this! everytime Jason Sudeikis references 'the universe' in an interview I'm like, yeaaaaahhh bro!

 I lived in the US for a year, and i can often be found up to no good (;) in austin & NYC!  hence the Brit-US synergy at the core of the show is right up my street!

With my US ties, work within the TV industry and Richmond locality, I BELIEVE (;) it's a tiny slice of that thing they call destiny that I was in the right place, right time to craft this little tour for y'all!

By patronizing this tour, you will be supporting a single Mum business owner & myself & my guides thank you for your patronage in advance!

I am mostly mummying & working creatively, but i still run the odd tour, usually on a sunday...

Vic Performing in 'As You Like It', at our local producing theatre, The Orange Tree, Richmond. For a while, when she was leading a Ted Tour locals would stop her  & ask her was she in the play they saw the other day! I am so proud of my talented Lasso Ladies Vic & Carly! xxx

VICTORIA - Manager & tour guide;
my very own 'Barbara slash higgins'!

 Hi I’m Vic!  (But Willow calls me Keeley—or Ted, both of which are absolute compliments) 
I love: meeting people,
 watching Ted.
 being in Richmond,
 talking to people about watching Ted whilst being in Richmond.

This is also EXACTLY how Emmy and I met! We hit it off when I attended the tour, and now I join her in bringing bantr and good vibes to fellow fans when Emmy’s off wearing another of her many hats. Like Ted, I was once a stranger to Richmond, but have now grown to love and see it as my home away from home. 

Vic wrote the above herself, but Emmy wishes to add that Vic is a fantastic theatremaker who is currenty performing in 'As You Like It' at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond! (pure coincidence, but vic believes Ted &  i are her lucky charms!) 

 Vic is currently an Associate Artist with Bhumi Collective, an international, multicultural and transnational collective telling stories about the lesser seen, lesser and lesser talked about; particularly from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community. As a woman, she continuously reflects on female identity as a continual performance and its potential for “empowerment” in modern society.

GO VIC!!!! xxxx

PS - Vic runs the business & is the one you will be contacting if emailing us...Basically, I could not do without this golden kid!...
 

CARLY - Tour guide 
& our very own 'theodora lasso!'

Hello, hello, hello! 
I’m Carly, a London-based actor and theatre maker from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!)

My passion for theatre brought me to London, and my love for the amazing people of the UK made me stay (not so much the tea, I am with Ted on that one!) 

I started watching Ted Lasso with my British partner, a BIG football fan (Go Burnley, anyone??), when Season 1 came out, and we both immediately fell in love with the show. It helped to bridge our transcontinental worlds together in a hilarious, thrilling and heartwarming way. 
I am a people person through and through! Meeting new people and making new friends is my jam, and I can’t WAIT to show you, all my new friends, around Ted’s fabulous Richmond! 

When I am not becoming besties with a new barista or dog-watching (also great to do in Richmond), I can be found performing and creating immersive, VR theatre. I am especially passionate about new and experimental theatrical techniques that defy the limitations of modern reality. 

Looking forward to meeting you on the Green! I appreciate ya! 

Bruce -Tour Guide 
& Our Very Own Sweetheart Will!

Hellooo!

I'm Bruce: a London-born and bred actor and the newest addition to the Tedhead team! I'd describe myself as a cross between Danny Rojas and Will - extreme love for football (not soccer) with a bumbling, awkward Britishness on top. 

I’m a huge Arsenal fan (#NorthLondonisRed) and initially started watching the show for that reason. I soon realised though, that this show is about a lot more than just a game of football, and fell in love with its lessons on family, friendship, love, loss and the true meaning of sportsmanship.

I went to drama school in London and have worked mainly in Shakespeare and contemporary theatre, as well as keeping busy with independent and corporate film. Last year, I had to grow a Ted moustache of my own, playing a WWI soldier in a Shakespeare tour for a few months, and found it the itchiest thing on the planet (not sure how Jason does it). I've also recently been in a short film with a member of the Ted cast - and may reveal who on the tour!

I will do my very best to convince you that tea is one of the greatest gifts to humankind, and I can't wait to meet you all out on the Green!"

SANDRA- Tour Guide & Our Very Own 
Uber Positive Danny Rojas!

Howdy!

I’m Sandy, a theatre maker and lucky Richmond resident (voted the happiest place to live in the UK)! 

I am originally from Guadalajara, Mexico where both Dany Rojas and Cristo Fernandez, (the actor who plays Dany), came from. Futbol is life! Combining the love for my neighbourhood and my favourite tv show is such a joy!

I could spend all the time sharing the beauties of Richmond and reliving heartwarming and inspiring stories from Ted Lasso.

When I’m not enjoying Richmond’s green spaces and beautiful walks with my partner Liam and our rescue dog Chula, you will find my at my other beloved home, the theatre! As a director, choreographer, and multidisciplinary artist I get to collaborate with inspiring creatives to tell stories that (re) connect us with ourselves and each other. 

Like Jason Sudeikis, my hope is to spend my time creating things that go deep and ripple on. 

I have always been a traveler and have had the pleasure of calling many different countries a home. I am proudly multicultural and fortunately multilingual, so if you’re looking for a cheeky experience in Italian or Spanish, don’t hesitate to ask! 

I’m looking forward to meeting you out there and chatting about our appreciation and head nodding at the fantastic creativity in our favourite show. 

If you lolled at all the musical theatre references in TL, I’m your girl to geek out with!

Looking forward to touring you soonish!

Willow -Our Rebecca; (-calling all the shots from behind the scenes ;)

Hellooo!

I am Willow, Emmy's daughter aged, 2 and I like chatting, giggling, climbing anything & everything, running around like a maniac, saying 'NO!' (I can give Roy a run for his money!) and occasional yelling. 

my seventh clear word spoken was 'TED', EVEN BEFORE NANNA & GRANDAD! 

I now say 'Ted Believe!' when I am in trouble with mummy, as I know it makes her laugh & forget what she is peeved about! sneaky!

Mummy thought of creating this tour, when nap-walking me to sleep on the cobbles outside Ted's Pub, and stopping to chat and take pics for Ted Tourists! Before Mummy could afford nursery, i actually accompanied all you tedheads on mum's early tours in my buggy! (i love y'all, but no offence i prefer nursery ;)...

I (usually!) love people and look forward to smiling at you soon! Have a look out for Mummy & I in Richmond during nursery pick up & give us a wave & hello!...
