Jill Nalder

Jill is originally from South Wales. She trained at Mountview Theatre School in London. She is delighted to have appeared in the highly acclaimed Channel 4 TV Series by Russell T Davies, It’s A Sin. The series was nominated for eleven Baftas (including best mini- series) and was the 2022 winner of the NTAs (The National Television Awards.) Russell based his character Jill Baxter on her life and used her story and that of her friends (and his) as his inspiration for the series.
