Linora the Actress
Linora started at the early age to acting. Kindergarten and her own bedroom where she would pull off little scenes from TV. I kid you not. Bubbly, filled with personality and smile that is infectious, she is bound to capture hearts. Her first step into the entertainment world began when she tried out for the role of an Angel – for a musical piece that was to aired on television. From there she further pursued her interest in acting. After that she managed to land herself a role in a TV series called “In Da Groove” in 2004, where she had fun playing a bimbo named, Bunny.
In the year 2005-2007 she focused more on her studies and career as a brand planner in McCann Erickson for year before coming back into the entertainment industry. Time in the advertising line was fast and entertaining. But the call to go back on to the stage was a lot stronger. At the end of 2007, she took a theatrical class Practical Acting Aesthetics thought by David Lim (a fellow actor) a KLPAC, which brought back her passion and motivation to continue acting. Immediately after that Linora didn’t waste anytime and jumped straight into yet another class. This time Acting for Beginners taught by a famous veteran in our performing arts field, Joe Hasham. Gaining more experience from the acting course, she managed to land her first ever theatre role as an ensemble in the musical Ismail: The Last Days directed by Joe Hasham. Not bad for a first year.
Following closely if not at the same time, she was also involved with the Christian performing arts group The Footstool Players spearheaded by Colin Kirton, another well known name in the industry, who acted in the very well acclaimed P. Ramlee The Musical. The team performed “A Crazy Little Thing Called Love” a series of short skits base on various types of relationships and the show also won “Best Group Performance” for the Boh Cameronian Awards 2010. In the show, Linora performed as three different characters which gave her a lot of room to learn how to be a versatile actor.
With theater as her background and great place to begin learning her craft, she then applied for the Astro-Nida (Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art) screen acting course. She landed a spot out of number of applicants and was taught under the guidance of Nicholas Bishop who is currently in starring in the TV Series Body of Proof. From there, Linora landed her first role in a movie entitled Belukar that starred local celebrities such as Bront Palarae and Daphne Iking. The film was shot in Sabah and was directed by Jason Chong. It was a rollercoaster ride and that was when Linora made her debut to the silverscreen.
