What I do – Acting in East Anglia

What’s New?

Covid-19

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the government request that all non-essential social contact and gatherings be avoided, productions on stage and off, are currently cancelled or postponed for the time being. As soon as I have any updates I will let you know…

Film

Duelo

Most recently I have been working on Duelo with Edward Heredia and Paige Fisher.  Duelo is a short film being produced locally in Norwich. Norfolk. If you would like to find out more about the project and how you could help support local filmmaking talent in East Anglia, then pop over to the Duelo Crowdfunder page.

 

11th February 2020

I am very sleepy this evening, following an afternoon of rehearsals for a scene from a short film that will be shot in Norwich in March 2020.

I am far more accustomed to theatre than film and analysing the dialogue of stage scripts, rather than the descriptive visuality of a screenplay. So, it was immensely helpful to meet up with the director and fellow actors to run our scene.

Such a wonderful project too, as I am working with student filmmakers, Edward Heredia  and Paige Fisher, from our very own Norwich University of the Arts. I have worked with Edward from the beginning to the end of his course. Such a deeply thoughtful, reflective and professional Director who I am sure will go far when he graduates uni.

A work in progress, I have recently been putting my past performance photographs into slideshows. I am uploading them all onto my Youtube Channel as and when I finish producing them. Also viewable via my Facebook page.

Coming Soon

Chips with Everything

Chips with Everything by Arnold Wesker coming soon to the The Maddermarket Theatre. With Marie Cooper as the Flight Sergeant and PT Instructor.

Chips with Everything is the story of Pip, a conscript in the Royal Air Force, who, despite his relatively priviledged upbringing, wants to be treated no differently to his fellow airmen.

Originally premiered in the West end in 1967, this staging of the play, being directed by Jen Dewsbury, is unusual in that the cast of twenty actors will be played entirely by women.

Showing from the 19th – 27th June 2020, Tickets can be booked now via the Maddermarket Theatre website  with discounted Early Bird tickets available for only £9.95 if booked by 24th April 2020.

Awards 2019

The Literary Consultancy Free Read

In 2018 I diversified from being not only a person who acts, and being paid as a professional actor, but I also (reluctantly at first) branched out into writing for the first time in a long time.

It turned out to be a good diversion from performing. All of the hard work of research and writing paid off, when I was finally able to announce that I had been chosen by the National Centre of Writing  as a winner of an Arts Council East funded TLC Free Read  by The Literary Consultancy … read more  

Prize for Outstanding Performance

Then, just after the go ahead to make this public in April 2019, I got a letter through from the University of East Anglia from the Interdisciplinary Institute of the Humanities to say that I have been awarded a Prize for Outstanding Performance by a Creative Entrepreneurship MA Student….read more

To have a look at my past projects take a look at my portfolio

A Norwich actor, I was born in Norfolk and now perform around the East Anglian area of the UK and beyond. I started my acting career in open air theatre in the beautiful parks and green spaces of Norfolk.

I completed the Norwich Theatre Royal acting course and have also been incredibly fortunate to train with The John Wright Clowning School, Berlin’s TheatreFragile, Teatro Strappato and had voice and movement training with the Royal Shakespeare Company.  I completed my Master’s degree in Creative Entrepreneurship at the University of East Anglia in Norwich in 2018.
