Milena Zenati-Parsons

I stem from a working class, Welsh, Italian background.

I did not when younger have the opportunities to participate in acting or other things due to externalities. I started out as Cabin Crew for British Airways until I was medically retired. I then embarked on a part-time law degree whilst being in and out of hospital.

I write, research and I also offer my services in disability consultancy in relation to accessibility and other areas. I also help people with their PIP/ESA in my own community along with any other difficulties they have.

I am married with two boys who also love acting and are into sport. (Frequently found on top of mountains for Rugby in my wheelchair). I have experienced no difficulties so far being on any TV or Film Set.

My family are part of Sherman 5 Theatre project which enables families such as ourselves to go to the theatre, get involved and get to see productions we would not be able to see due to cost and accessibility.

I was part of organising a non-profit charity Caerphilly Comic Con in 2017 in aid of our local Children’s Centre which was fun and successful.

I am able to apply my life experiences, my law degree, my previous work with all the people I have met, the places I have visited into acting and into the stories with which I am writing. I have achieved a sense of empowerment and liberation in recent years which has been further fostered in an enormous way by my family, my agents, teachers and actors who are sharing their knowledge, teaching us skills and preparing us as much as we can for future projects with the determination we all have that we may be afforded the opportunity to have an audition resulting in a role.

I live by the mottos of 5 minutes of wonderful rather than a lifetime of nothing and videre bene, amare molto, ridere spesso e mangia italiano – Live lots, Love lots, Laugh lots and Eat Italian.
