2021 Graduate

Louisa Williamson

Louisa was exposed to theatre from a very young age, but initially thought music would be her main creative endeavour – she played cello, flute, and sang for years before she ever joined a drama class. She eventually (finally!) started classes at ATYP with Rob Jago and played Gonzalo in The Tempest while finishing high school in Sydney’s inner west. At ACA, Louisa’s first and favourite role has been Stephanie in Daylight Saving (dir. Troy Harrison), and has since enjoyed playing Second Maggie in The Mill on The Floss (dir. Maeliosa Stafford), Pippy in The Season at Sarsaparilla (dir. Jonathan Mill), Polina in The Seagull (dir. Camilla Ah Kin), Snug in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (dir. Jonathan Mill), Abby in The Mercy Seat (dir. Kim Hardwick), and Lucy in The Recruiting Officer (dir. Shaun Rennie and Richard Carroll). In a collaboration with NIDA graduate directors, Louisa appeared in Bluebeard’s Friends (dir. Matthew Latham), and her proudest achievement at ACA was directing and appearing in Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. During the break between lockdowns this year, Louisa played Maria Laura in Gazpacho (dir. Faye Bendrups) at La Mama. After such a rewarding three years, Louisa has grown considerably as an actor and a person – she is excited and ready to work in the industry with the Aussie artists she respects so much.
