Avye trained as an actress at Lecoq (2005-7), LAMDA (2004), and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts summer programme.
Her first job in theatre was the amazing opportunity to work on Kneehigh Theatre’s Brief Encounter in the West End, as Ensemble and first cover for the leading role of Laura (a part which she performed for a number of weeks). Other roles in theatre include a nosey neighbor and narrator of Kneehigh’s A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, and a harassed teacher in The Elephantom at the National Theatre.
Film work includes appearances in The Fifth Estate, The Mercy and British Arrows award winning short film Snowflake.
Avye recently originated the role of Sally in Tom Stoppard’s Leopoldstadt (Wyndham’s theatre, until March 2020.)
