Reads for free & accepts tips

I am an actor, performance coach and filmmaker with a background in post production - giving me a unique angle and insight into acting, especially for screen.

If you've got an audition coming up and you want to work with someone who is passionate, who loves the process of auditioning on tape, with years of experience - reach out! It's so easy to get bogged down with the process, panicking about what people want to see - there is so much joy to be found in playing and I would love to work with you to create a layered, interesting performance that begins with you.

If you've already booked the job and want someone to bounce ideas off, run scenes, try characterisations or even run lines - please do get in touch, during this unprecedented time being able to work with someone face to face is a gift and this platform gives us that opportunity.

If I'm not online and you'd like to book me for a specific session, please do get in touch on Twitter or Instagram - @mrrobertdukes.

I look forward to hearing from you - break a leg!

Appearing in feature film 'Lair' (Ditto Films) as Detective Ron Adkin, due for release soon. The movie also stars Corey Johnson (The Bourne Franchise, Captain Phillips) and was featured in Variety at the end of 2020.

I produce my own award winning short films as I believe we need to take control of our circumstances and create our own path rather than wait for the phone to ring. My next project is 'No Way Back', in which I play Nate Andrews - a US detective going through a mental breakdown. I was post production supervisor on this project and put together the team who worked on it.

I have won several lead actor awards for my role in 'A Friend in Need' and in 'The Code'

Using my skills as an actor I have become a highly regarded executive presence coach. Working with clients in various sectors including local councils, Ofsted, RSPCA and the NHS - a pathway I didn't expect to find myself in but one that I believe has strengthened my own skillset as a performer.
