Claire is a regular on the red carpet and moderating film Q&A’s throughout the UK.

She is a regular Q&A host at the Arthouse, London an independent picture house. Guests have included Director Dexter Fletcher, actor Toby Jones, actor James Cosmo, actress Juliet Stevenson, actor Bill Paterson, actor Daniel Mays, actor Ralph Ineson.

Claire had the privilege of working for BAFTA hosting a Q&A to an intimate audience for BAFTA’s exclusive Academy Circle, interviewing actor and performance capture pioneer Andy Serkis. The evening was a great success and was certainly a great highlight.

Claire has also moderated for Apple at their London Regent Street venue in a programme of events called Meet The Cast: BBC’s The Musketeers to a large audience of the show’s fans. Claire also hosted Q&A’s part of Meet The Cast and chatted to Celia Imrie about acting, the film The Second Best Marigold Hotel and about becoming an author.

Claire started her presenting career at the Active Radio Station in South Devon where she had her own show as well as working as part of a team in the Sunday request show.

Wanting to pursue a TV presenting career she knew she would need to move to London. Utilizing her IT skills Claire became one of QVC’s guest presenters specialising in technology. Nothing can quite prepare you for the thrill of live TV and having to fix a printer live on air was certainly a baptism by fire!

From QVC Claire went to work for Legal TV where she performed several voice overs but predominantly to be the presenter and interviewer of Work Wise a programme designed to see how the law affects the daily lives of businesses. Claire had the pleasure of interviewing a pioneer in recycling, a kid’s club martial arts teacher but her most memorable experience was interviewing a veterinary surgeon whilst neutering a dog!
She has a passion for film so when she was chosen to launch a new entertainment channel Leicester Square TV she had found her spiritual home. Having spent a number of years at LSQ.TV interviewing film and TV celebrities Claire embarked on an exciting new project to launch a new channel committed to the craft of filmmaking Premiere Scene.

Premiere Scene has given Claire the opportunity to utilize her producing skills as well has honing her interview technique where she has interviewed Hollywood’s finest A-list movie stars such as George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, Harrison Ford, Gillian Anderson, Mark Ruffalo and home grown talent including Dame Helen Mirren, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Tom Hardy, Keira Knightley, Mark Rylance and Sir Ben Kingsley. Via Premiere Scene Claire has worked with Getty Images, reported from Cannes film festival for movieScope Magazine and recently launched Pearl and Dean Premieres in a sponsored pre-reel show broadcast in cinemas nationwide which she hosted and produced.

In 2015 Claire moderated panel talks with the cast of Ghostbusters, Game Of Thrones, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Red Dwarf and Poltergeist with stars including Ernie Hudson, James Cosmo, Colin Baker, Chris Barrie and Norman Lovett at Optimus South West Film and TV Convention to an audience of over 300 people per sitting.

Claire is still the main presenter at Premiere Scene and continues to grow the successful channel.

Reactions:


Tom Hiddleston, Actor
Claire asked Tom ‘I believe one of the reasons you became an actor was to explore human emotion and I wondered how your interest in this reflected in your decision in the films you were judging today?’
Tom replied ‘That’s an amazing question . . .’

Jean-Claude van Damme, Actor
Claire asked Jean-Claude ‘Your character is pretty merciless in the film, so I wondered what kind of back story that you’d given him to get to the point where he is so unforgiving?’
Jean-Claude replied ‘That’s the first great question . . .’
