Amelia O'Loughlin


Amelia is a British-Irish actor, writer and the Founder of Freida Films. Her filmmaking is driven by real-life stories and subjects of the times. She founded Freida Films in the spring of 2020 as a means for creating a space for storytelling during the pandemic. 

She's since written, performed in and produced the company's narrative projects: I'm Still Ethan (starring Dave Johns and with music by Kae Tempest), and To Butcher a Bird - in association with Enon Films and Ambanja Films. She's partnered with multiple production companies and creatives across the UK and believes there's great power in creative collaboration. She directed and produced a series of documentary shorts: Episodes Of, capturing a day-in-the-life of six Londoners; working with local filmmakers, poets, spoken word-artists and musicians. 

I'm Still Ethan follows the life of a young boy during the aftermath of his father's incarceration; Amelia is now developing the project for TV alongside Phoebe Lorenz. She's been the driving force behind their team's extensive R&D; working with leading professionals in the field of Crest Advisory, G4S/HMP Parc and NEPACS to strengthen the presence, authenticity and voice of the film. 

Amelia's currently developing her debut feature: a bold & punchy drama on recovery from PTSD Twelve Calls from Billie Bellucci. As an actor she's performed on the stages of London, Barcelona, New York City and at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2017 she established Stone's Throw Theatre Company and toured literary and directorial debut These Four Walls - in association with Clean Break Theatre Company.
