Biography


Born and raised in Lusaka Zambia, Gloria trained as an actress and writer at Oxford School of Drama and Brown University. She initially worked in theatre, earning a Bessie, New York Dance and Performance award. After a series of acting roles most notably in Mete Sozer's acclaimed And the Circus Leaves Town, she appeared in Rungano Nyoni's I'm not a Witch, which premiered at the Director's Fortnight in Cannes 2017, and went onto various festivals including Sundance and Toronto, as well as winning several BIFA awards, a  BAFTA for Best British Debut feature and being the UK's foreign language Oscar entry for 2018. 



Seeing the dearth of roles and voices that reflect the contemporary African experience Gloria turned her hand to writing. Her first Short Angst won the Freak Award at Aguilar de Campoo and the Best Short Film Award at Milano International Film Festival. Gloria's  most recent feature length screenplay, Victoria Falls was selected for the Urucu Realness Residency, and B3 Talent Lab.
