Claire Anne Williams- Screen Daily Stars of Tomorrow 2021

By News

Hair and Makeup Designer Claire Anne Williams has been selected as one of Screen Daily’s Stars of Tomorrow 2021.

Following her childhood dream of becoming a hair and makeup artist, Claire undertook a traineeship offered by ScreenSkills and three weeks later found herself on the set of fantasy adventure feature Of Gods And Warriors (aka Viking Destiny). Further training came on big-budget productions for Disney including Solo: A Star Wars Story and Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil.  These experiences sparked Claire’s interest in SFX make-up and gave her the fundamental training in skills she now uses as a Designer.

Since joining Loop Talent as one of our first HODS, Claire has gone on to build up an impressive portfolio of work including Neil Maskell’s Klokkenluider executive produced by Ben Wheatley & starring Jenna Coleman and Tom Burke.  Clare has also worked on a range of high-end commercials for top brands including Pandora and Nike.
