Phina Oruche is having an identity crisis.

Best known for her role as aloof supermodel Liberty Baker in ITV1 drama Footballers’ Wives, Phina, now in her 40s, has started to question who she really is. Spending more than two decades of her life taking on other people’s identities – first as a New York fashion model and later as an award-winning TV actress – has taken its toll. Her one-woman show, Identity Crisis, is based upon her own life story and explores identity struggles that are common to all of us.

Through its low-key staging, the show provides a perfect vehicle for Phina’s larger than life characterisations. From Amy Tan, a working class white girl with a Scouse Brow and a taste for spray tans to Antonio de Silva, a football-crazy Italian living in LA who misses his mum, Phina brings a colourful cast of eight characters to life, all of whom are having their own identity crises.

Phina Oruche graduated from Edge Hill University in 2014 after completing her Masters degree in Media.
