Tootsie (who also goes by Steph De Whalley) is an actress, tap dancer and cabaret performer. She is mid-tap dance here, looking cheerfully at the floor. She is wearing a red sleeveless dress, knee length, which is half-covered by a red checked apron, and black heeled tap shoes. Behind her is a table with a wrapped present and a vase of flowers on it. We can just see a couple of audience members behind her who are enjoying her dance.

I’ve always thought I was really pessimistic. I think I, particularly in this industry, like, it’s so easy to get really caught up in like, ‘Oh my God, what’s my next job?’ And like, and trying to go up the hierarchy, which is a horrible word, but sometimes you are like, ‘The next job, I want it to be maybe a bigger theatre or a bigger whatever.’  Success is a horrible driving force, I feel, sometimes. Sometimes. I think I might actually be an optimist, so there’s something.

Stephanie De Whalley quote: 'I spent three days on the sofa, literally. It was so odd. It really hit me, and I think it's that losing control, losing a job.'
