“Abbie Steele … really caught my attention. Her performance was short, precise, emotive and one of the only characters within the story that I cared about and genuinely felt emotion towards.”
From a review by Back to the Movies of her role as Amy in Essex Boys: Law of Survival
A passionate performer since childhood, Abbie Steele is an actress based in London, UK where she is pursuing a career focused both on stage and screen. Abbie, who is originally from a farming family in Cumbria, won a scholarship with Razzamataz Theatre Schools in 2008, before gaining a BA (Hons) in Drama and Performance Studies at the University of Worcester where she went on to do work experience with Tim Kent at The Actors Studio, Pinewood Studios. It was during her time at Pinewood that Abbie fell in love with screen acting. In 2013 she moved to London to pursue training with New York acting coach, Michael Duvall, founder of Instinctual Acting. Abbie continues to attend weekly workshops and one to one sessions there while gaining experience in the industry.
Leaving her farming roots behind, Abbie has built a solid reputation as a leading, dramatic actress. In 2015 she played supporting role, Amy, in Greenway Entertainment’s film Essex Boys: Law of Survival which was released into various cinemas across the UK and on DVD internationally. In 2018 she starred alongside rising actors Isaac Money and Luke Christian playing leading role, Charlotte, in Guildhall Pictures’ upcoming thriller ‘The Passenger’ which was taken to the Cannes Film Festival, 2019.
Abbie has most recently completed filming independent feature film ‘When Pigs Die’ (2019) in which she played the lead protagonist, Francis. The dark comedy revolves around the life of Francis and will be released into the festival circuit later this year.
