The background behind Jude’s rise to OSCAR, EMMY and BAFTA nominations, are to be found at around half past three on Sunday afternoons when as a young child she would leave her sisters playing in the garden, make her way into the house, close the curtains and immerse herself in the old Hollywood black and white movies from the 1930s & 40s. if she couldn’t go back in time, she would work in the movies & that’s exactly what she did…
In 1983 following her graduation from Birmingham Art School (BA Hons Theatre Design) Jude found herself on the first rung of the BBC ladder, only 22 years old, with little experience but limitless enthusiasm, energy and determination, her foot was in the door and nothing was going to remove it.
Jude joined the BBC at a time of brilliant new British comedy; she worked on productions such as Black Adder, Rory Bremner, Reeves and Mortimer & Mr Bean, as well as some of the finest British television drama. This gave her a fantastic discipline & training which helped her move on as a freelance set decorator into the British film industry. Since then she has steadily pursued her career, working all over the world with a roll call of talent & an impressive CV.
