Eleanor Wyld is a queer Jewish writer and actor from Hackney. She studied at Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has worked extensively as an actor in theatre, film and television.

Eleanor has been commissioned to adapt her novel CRAY for the screen by Red Planet Pictures and the BBC co-writing with another of our clients, Sarah Gordon.

In CRAY, broke, would-be actress Janis Steele is putting on the performance of a lifetime. She’s on a coming- of-age quest for success and validation whilst serving canape?s to the people she partied with the night before. It’s a swirling, sharp-witted study of female alcoholism and mental health; loss and friendship.
