"Jade is first and foremost a capable and adaptable actress with a good understanding of stage work. But almost as importantly, she is an enthusiastic team player who mixes well with everyone and offers the joie de vivre that does so much to make the team’s experience enjoyable. At our auditions Jade’s vocal range and stage presence stood out – and I would have been happy to cast her in any of the female roles in this production.   It has been great working with Jade and I very much hope that she will be involved in many more of our productions in future."

"Jade is an actress whom I've only had the joy of meeting very recently. She is someone who is very easy to talk to, and to discuss and create ideas with; hence how this project came about at all. I asked her if she would like to record some dualogues from a plethora of work I had lying about, and she was more than happy to both comply and collaborate with this daunting idea. She has a very quick ear, impeccible timing, and is never one to want to hog the spotlight; which in my opinion made these recordings both easy on the ear and generally warm to listen to. I would also like to note that Jade had not seen any of the scripts until the morning we recorded, and she seemed to know and understand the characters and the lines far better than I did myself! Jade managed to bring something fresh to every role she encountered, and above that she had such a professional yet friendly manner that it never really felt like we were working at all, it was more like we were both doing what we both enjoyed which made it all the more fun. With these recordings Jade has brought out both the humanity and the inhumanity in the characters she read, and gave them such an immediate depth and tenacity of spirit that if an opportunity ever arose to produce any of these scripts she would most certainly be someone I would want to have somewhere in either the cast or the crew. Jade is certaintly the sort of actress I would enjoy working with again. And she will constantly be in mind when composing and refining the worlds and characters created in my humble little texts."

"I worked with Jade on an amateur production which was performed at a Plymouth church in July 2017. We were asked to produce the show at relatively short notice, and although I was called the co-director, I worked primarily on the script and left everything else to Jade. Jade soon showed that she was more than capable of both handling the cast, (who initially probably had doubts about her abilities) and also of bringing this production to fruition.

   I was only asked to direct solely for the one week she was on holiday, and to be truthful I couldn't wait for her to return, I was very impressed with Jade's versatility and the energy she put into it. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jade again if we were asked to produce something similiar."

"Jade was a joy to work with, she listened, adapted to film technique very well, and brought much of her own creativity to the role. Jades intensity and absolute dedication to the character and the project as a whole was a pleasure to witness during the seventeen days we had together on set. When dealing with the pressure of a tight shoot Jades all round contribution was invaluable. Jade is someone I would definitely recommend and someone I would definitely work with again, always smiling, offering some fantastic opinions on things we were working on, and just applying herself in an incredibly professional and helpful manner."

"Make no bones about it, Ms Callender with every part of working theatre is on the money! She is deliberate and dedicated in her work and to be this strong in performance at this stage in her life will only prove positive for future roles. No complaints. A hard worker and able to take direction accurately."

"Jade is a young, vibrant, extremely talented professional Actress. She has good projection, good expression, excellent modulation, can take Direction and learns lines in a respectable amount of time.  Movement and characterisation are part of her strengths. During her time with The Play writers Organisation and our Production company she was a great example of how to concentrate on the part being played. Her timing on stage is brilliant. To anyone thinking of casting Jade I say, Do it !!"

Director of "Game of Murder" and "Rudolph"
