Toyah Willcox

Toyah has successfully combined acting and singing for 40 years to critical acclaim. This year The Telegraph called her “absolutely brilliant!” in her latest film role as Barbara in Steve Oram’s Aaaaaaaah! (2015). She has a passion for independent film and experimentation, having been a muse of the late director Derek Jarman. Toyah has always balanced her acting/TV work with a career as a rock singer. The band called “Toyah” were very successful, particularly in the UK, in the early 1980s. Toyah’s unique voice, musical style, and personality contributed to her being voted Best Female Singer at the 1983 British Rock and Pop awards.
