A late starter. Ive only been a professional actor since 2008 but I've crammed and made up for lost time.
I have found that my prior real life experience has proved beneficial in my performances.
I trained at Second City in Chicago Ilinois and Actors Studio in Manchester England
I have gradually improved my credits over the years from my first appearance on stage at Edinburgh Festival as Mr Robinson in sell out performances of The Graduate through to UK #1 Theatre Tours in award winning 3 hander Secret Diaries. TV and screen credits include Trying Again (Emmy winning team Veep); BBC's Lunch Monkeys; Coronation St; Ackley Bridge and most recently British Film Institute funded Fargate and Tyresome.
Self-taping is fast becoming the norm and its important that you have a reader of a quality that encourages your listening skills and reactions. This can give you that extra edge in that all important audition.
I'm also a comedy scriptwriter and stand up and this helps with your timing and emphasis.
I have a natural blue collar Northern English accent (Yorkshire) but am also proficient in Cockney (London), British RP and general Irish
I also have great improv skills from Chicago Second City and Comedy Sportz.
