Sue Maund trained as an actress at Drama Studio London. She started out in fringe theatre, playing Patty in Bond's The Fool and Mae in Fornes' Mud, while supporting herself with a variety of jobs including ironing Ken Russell's underpants.
She then spent a baffled two years with Theatre Pur trying to understand performance art, before moving on to make micro-appearances behind Nicole Kidman in The Birthday Girl, Peter Mullan in Miss Julie and a rather large volcano in Krakatoa for Channel 4. Her one title role, in Scarlet Theatre's Princess Sharon, involved walking, sitting down and suffering in silence, before choking to death on a haddock.
Sue has also worked extensively over the years with New Factory of the Eccentric Actor in a variety of free performances in non-theatre spaces, usually involving vodka, tea, cake and a revolutionary theme.
Her kindest review (for Princess Sharon) described her as "plain, strange and luminous". However her brother thought she looked like Old Steptoe.
