Faye trained as an actress at RADA between 2012 – 2015.
After graduating she signed to Independent Talent Group and enjoyed success with roles such as Cant in Howard Barker’s The Castle (dir. Philip Franks), Cecily in The Importance of being Ernest by Oscar Wilde (dir. Nona Sheppard) and Lou in Emmerdale (dir. Alan Wareing) whilst also working for Women @ RADA, an organisation of staff and students challenging gender disparity in the industry and beyond.
Throughout her acting career she has worked frequently in the development of new work, for example New Labour by Marcelos Dos Santos (dir. Richard Wilson) and a considerable amount of R&D workshops. This is where her interest in directing started.
In 2019 she directed an R&D of a brand new play, followed by several performances at the RADA festival. Her approach to directing is to create an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding. Her work always seeks to level the playing field and redress inequalities both in the industry and society at large by providing opportunities for women from currently underrepresented groups, herself included, and uplifting unheard voices. She has a demonstrable dedication to the importance of preserving and sharing women’s cultural history through her work at W@R and as Assistant Producer at Greenham Women Everywhere
