ACTING PASSION

I'd been going through life with an expectation that something fantastic was going to happen to me, something life altering was going to make my life different and unique. I was 35 when I finally realised nothing was going to happen unless I made it happen for myself. It took 13 years of a morale-killing office job before I woke up to my reality. I needed a new path, one where I could pursue my dream occupation; a career that I had always told myself was unattainable was about to become attainable, or I would die trying. I switched off auto-pilot and I took charge of my life. I left finacial-security in order to become an actor. It was a moment of complete clarity, I'd never felt more honest with myself than at that moment. I was giving up all that I had clung onto for years through fear of insecurity. Everything was about to change. 

I immediately through myself into local theatre, doing three or four shows a year, and then into short films with students or local filmmakers. I joined some local classes too whilst they lasted. It wasn't long before I had my first role in a local feature film 'Follow the Crows'. I've since gone on to act in a variety of projects gaining a broad range of experience. In 2019, I was cast in 'The Lady From The Sea' a feature film based on an Ibson play, filmed in Norway. It was my proudest film achievement to date. It was everything I wanted, a taste of the world in which I dreamed to be immersed in, and it was over in the blink of an eye. Two weeks' worth of filming felt like a few days. I was left with an insatiable thirst for more.

My passion to act in film is stronger than ever. The whole screen acting process excites me. I love the professionalism of it all. I always ensure I bring a professional work ethic to set and pride myself on working hard for the director and crew, listening, taking direction and building a positive reputation as a team player. An actor whom is reliable and a joy to work alongside. Aiming to be the best I can within the profession is important to me. Working on my character in preparation, bringing an energy and enthusiasim to set, demonstrating that I have the right attitude to be considered a team player. This is all part of my personality. I am an extenBeing a regularly paid actor is my idea of success as before acting, I'd never felt enjoyment towards employment. I think I'm a simple man; I love family and I love acting. They're all I want in this world. 

Thank you for your time.
