Two Sides: A Cleft Story - Casting of Emily

We are proud to announce that the leading role of adult Emily in IQ Network Creative's production of Two Sides: A Cleft Story, will be played by Libbie Thompson.

Libbie is an incredibly talented lady, bringing her own unique experience and story to the role. Having graduated from Italia Conti Academy theatre school, she has a wealth of experience including being cast in Billy Elliot at Victoria Palace, playing the role of Angela Robson for 18 months.

Congratulations again Libbie!

"Past negative experiences ignited a fire within me to prove that I and other people with clefts should be able to do anything that anyone else can... I have always wanted to be a 'voice' for people with clefts and in fact any sort of facial deformity." - Libbie Thompson
