Josette Simon OBE

Bringing a wealth of acting experience to our team and an OBE!

Job Role

Josette is the acting royalty of the ted Learning team.  A career spanning from 1980 when Josette broke into the big time with her role as Dayna in Blakes 7, she has spent the subsequent 4 decades in constant demand. She brings great humour to the roles she plays for us and can be seen in our main home page video along with our Equality & Diversity course video.


Born in Leicester, Josette has appeared in film, TV and theatre constantly since 1980.  She was awarded the OBE in the 2000 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for her services to drama and in 1990 was awarded the London Evening Standard Theatre Award for best actress for her performance in Arthur Miller’s play “after the fall”.
