The actress, who has also made a name for herself in a number of television shows, is set to open her latest academy and this time its in Coopers’ Company and Coborn School in St Mary’s Lane, Upminster on October 13.

Pauline started her first academy with her husband Steve with an attempt to try to recreate some of the excitement that she experienced when she was growing up.

She said: “I started PQA becauuse when I was a kid, some of my happiest times were spent in drama classes.

“I think the wrold has changed since then, So I wanted to re-create the experience that I was lucky ennough to have at the drama school I attended, learning performing arts in a safe annd fun environment with a professional attitude.”

The academy will be run by Principal Mark Bowman and his team of professional and trained performers who have worked in the industry themselves.

All the students students will get the chance to perform at Her Majesty’s Theatre with Pauline, perform in a local production and to star in their own film
