It wasn’t until she was approached by casting director Lucy Pardee to star in Dirty God, a film about a young woman coping with life after being the victim of an acid attack that Vicky even considered a career in acting. Working as a healthcare assistant was and still is her primary job, predominantly because she gets so much out of helping the patients in her care, being able to empathise on another level because of her own experiences and she will continue this work alongside acting in the future.
Vicky was naturally hesitant when filming first began but now looks back at her time on Dirty God as a life-changing experience. Her relationship with Sacha helped repair some of the confidence lost after years of being treated differently because of her scars after being in an arson attack as a child. Vicky came to the understanding that the more you give as an actor, the more you get back and she soon learned how to be comfortable on screen, with the support of Sacha and the film crew.
Acting is not something that Vicky takes for granted by any means and is grateful for all the opportunities that have come her way since working on Dirty God, including working with the legendary Lynne Ramsay on a short film about photographer Brigitte Lacombe, along with her younger sister who is also interested in the production design side of filmmaking.
