About Me

I was born Beverley Ricketts and am married to Mr Tracy G Williams! I  grew up in Birmingham and developed a love of theatre, film, social conscience issues,  poetry, French and Elvis Presley.  Upon entering the world of professional theatre at the age of 17 Beverley ‘Ricketts‘ was advised to adopt a professional performance name. Beverley Jordan became the Actors Equity name that I adopted as a trading name.  (I wish I’d kept the name Ricketts as it would have been a lot easier!) So…

Just call me Bev!
