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 22 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 am down with the 'teatime tellies', having played guest leads in coronation street, doctors, holby city & spooks (MI5 in the US). Fun fact: I have been admitted to holby city general hospital (fictional) 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 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 NYC for a year, and in 2018/9, visited 11 US cities in one year (back and forth), 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 (;) I am the perfect person to take you on the Ted Tour!
By patronizing this tour, you will be supporting a single Mum continue to work as an actor, and do another job I love in between!
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!
I am Willow, 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'!
I now say 'ted lasso' 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!
I (usually!) love people and look forward to smiling at you soon! Mummy is often pushing me around Richmond on her days off, so have a look out for us & shout hello!
